St. Martin Parish has been approved for DSNAP (Disaster Food Stamps). The application process runs from Monday, November 16 - Friday November 20, 2020. SNAP recipients are not eligible for DSNAP and also should not apply. Information about SNAP benefits changes related to Hurricane Delta can be found at www.dcfs.la.gov/SNAPstorms.
Residents are encouraged, but not required, to take the following steps before calling to apply and be interviewed for DSNAP:
Pre-register online first. Step-by-step instructions for this can be found at dcfs.la.gov/DSNAP.
Download the LA Wallet mobile app for identity and residency verification. Information on the app, including download links, can be found at LAWallet.com.
Gather all information needed for the application. A list of what is needed can be found in the FAQs at dcfs.la.gov/DSNAP.
Residents who pre-registered or applied for DSNAP after Hurricane Laura (or anytime since March 2020) do not need to pre-register again.
When residents call to apply and be interviewed for DSNAP, a worker will verify the applicant’s identity and residency, and obtain information about their income, resources and disaster-related expenses. Most applicants will be told on the phone immediately after completing their application and interview whether they have been approved to receive DSNAP and if so, the amount of benefits they will receive. Applicants will also receive a letter by mail, confirming the eligibility decision made on their application.
Applicants may name an Authorized Representative (AR) to apply for DSNAP benefits on their behalf. The head of household must authorize the person to serve as AR on their behalf, and the worker will need to speak to the head of household to confirm that they agree for the AR to speak on their behalf.
Additional information about DSNAP can be found by texting LADSNAP to 898-211 or by visiting www.dcfs.la.gov/DSNAP

We are off to a great start for the 2020-2021 school year. Our first week was full of excitement and the students were eager to return.
Parents, as we move forward with the school year I would like to notify you of some changes to the school days. After review, there has been some added changes for students in grades 6-12. These students will report to JCEP four days a week. On Wednesdays, students in these grade levels will complete work at home. The students will be assigned an at home assignment through google classroom if they have a digital resource or they will be provided a paper resource from their teacher if they do not have a digital resource. The changes will start on Thursday, September 17, 2020.
In addition, students that are currently enrolled in the JCEP Virtual program will be given the opportunity to return to the site to complete their term. Also, when a student has to test virtually they will have to login to their google meets account with the school email and also the Edgenuity program. The grade level teacher will initiate the test. Students will have to share their screen with the teacher to initiate testing at home. Appointments by email to the grade level teacher will have to be made to initiate testing.
If you have any questions or would like to change your student’s enrollment status from virtual to in person feel free to call 337.909.3362.
Student can now bring clear book bags to the location and other school supplies listed on the letter.
Students must wear face coverings every day. If the student has a medical condition that prevents this, documentation must be brought to the site and approval will be send back in a written correspondence.

Parents and Guardians:
Students serving an assignment at JCEP shall attend school unless one of the following circumstances have occurred:
a. A letter is received with a JCEP letter head on it stating the student is returning to school.
b. A letter is received with a JCEP letter head on it stating the student is being sent to their home school for testing.
c. The parish has declared an emergency and JCEP is in the area of the affected emergency.
d. The area in which JCEP is located is getting out early and school transportation will be affected by it, i.e. if located in St. Martinville and the area schools are dismissing early it is highly probable that only students that reside in the St. Martinville area will dismiss early. If this affects you call 337.909.3362 or check the JCEP site for further information on the date of dismissal. In this case a partial day attendance is still required.
If you have questions on site closings or student attendance feel free to call 337. 909. 3362.
If you have a child that has been assigned because of a prescribed or non-prescribed drug , the student must complete a drug assessment before they can return to school. Here are some facilities to try:
