04-05-2020 ~ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

 1.  When will schools reopen?

Currently, by proclamation of the Governor, schools are closed through April 30.

 

 2.  Are school class assignments being given?

Assignments by grade level and subject area (Pre-K through 8) and certain core subjects (grades 9-12) available are online at www.tpsd.org.

For students that do not have internet access at home and cannot access the online resources, paper learning packets are available at Southdown Elementary School and South Terrebonne High School.

Beginning Monday, April 6, on HTV Channel 10, there will be an education hour called “Terrebonne Teacher Time” daily at 3:30 pm. These lessons are aimed at younger children and will be given by our own teachers.

 

 3.  Are the on-line assignments and the paper learning packets the same?

The on-line assignments and paper learning packets are similar. The paper learning packets are being provided for those families without internet access at home.  If you can access the on-line materials, we encourage you to do that rather than picking up packets, and stay at home.

 

 4.  Are assignments going to be turned in and graded?

No, these assignments are not mandatory and will not be graded. They are intended as educational resources for families. During this crisis, additional stress is not needed.

 

 5.  How do I get support for my child with his/her work?

We encourage you to email your child's teacher with specific questions or set up a phone call or video conference using Google Hangout if you have internet access.  Teacher emails can be found on the school's webpage.  If teacher emails are not on the school website, all emails consist of teacher first and last name followed by @tpsd.org.  If you have any problems with contacting teachers, please email your principal.  

 

 6.  How will final grades be determined?

Final grades will be determined by using the grades that were obtained for the first three 9-week grading periods prior to closing. Should we return for any length of time, the grades for that period will count for the 4th period, and all 4 grades will be averaged.

 

 7.  Will this period of closure stop my senior from graduating?

No. Any student with passing marks when school closed will graduate, if the student was on track to graduate at the time schools were closed.

 

 8.  Will this period of closure cause my child to not be promoted?

No. Any student who was passing prior to the closure will still be on track to pass.

 

 9.  Are lunches available?

Yes, Grab-and-Go lunches are available every day from 11am to 1pm, Monday through Friday, at all 4 high schools.

 

10.  Will LEAP tests be given this year?

No.

 

11.  Will graduation ceremonies take place?

Yes, we will have graduation ceremonies for our seniors. All graduation ceremonies are currently scheduled in May, so the dates have not been changed. However, if the Stay-at-Home proclamation is extended, we still intend to have graduation ceremonies, even if they have to be moved into summer.

 

​​​​​​​12.  Will we have prom?

That decision hasn’t been made yet. We will make those decisions depending on health conditions of our community closer to the end of the school year.

 

13.  What is the status of other activities like spring sports, or cheer and dance tryouts?

There are no activities happening while schools are closed. At this time, we plan to resume all of those activities once schools reopen.

 

14.  What do I do if my child needs a work permit?

In response to the current COVID-19 event per La. R.S. 23:184.1, the 1Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) will begin issuing sixty (60) day blanket Employment Certificates for employers desiring to employ minors in the State of Louisiana. For more information, visit net or email laborprograms@lwc.la.gov

 

15.  How can I get updated information?

We are posting regular updates to our website, www.tpsd.org, and to our official TPSB Facebook page. You should also be receiving phone calls concerning updates and changes if you are a parent.

On Monday, April 6, “Terrebonne Teacher Time” will begin to air on HTV Channel 10. 

 

New lessons will air each Monday at 3:30. The same set of lessons will be broadcast daily each week, from 3:30 – 4:30, and will be taught by our own teachers.

04-02-2020 UPDATE ~ EXTENDED CLOSURE OF SCHOOLS

Due to the COVID19 virus, Governor Edwards has extended school closures until April 30. Terrebonne Parish Schools will comply with this proclamation.

 

We will continue the on-line educational resources, available at www.tpsd.org, and for those students without internet access, we will continue with take-home learning packets. In the interest of minimizing everyone’s exposure to each other, take-home learning packets will now be two-week packets. 

 

Set #2 of the packets will be placed at Southdown Elementary School and South Terrebonne High School on Monday, April 6. Packets will be accessible from 8 am to 8 pm, Monday through Friday. 

 

Please adhere to proper social distancing, and leave lots of space between you and others when picking up packets.

Continue to monitor the TPSD website and official Facebook page for further details.

 

Stay Safe!

03-28-2020 ~ UPDATE – INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES / LEARNING PACKETS

On Monday (03/30/2020), learning packets will be placed outside under the covered areas at Southdown Elementary (back of the school, enter on St. Charles Street) and South Terrebonne High School (front of the school).

 

These learning packets are for any student who does not have internet access to the educational resources on the TPSD website. 

 

There will be bins labeled with a grade level (Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade, and 9th - 12th Grade containing certain Core Courses). You may take a packet for each of your students for their grade level.

03-24-2020 ~ GRADES AND INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES!

 

Dear Parents,

 

During this time of school closure due to COVID19, we encourage you to continue to provide learning activities for your child when and where possible. TPSD has posted educational resources for student learning on its website, which are intended as a resource to assist parents and students. 

 

(By clicking on this link, you will be directed to a Google Document for Continued Learning Opportunities provided to students by the Terrebonne Parish School District.)

 

This period of school closure will not negatively impact any student’s grades, promotion, or graduation requirements.

 

These are difficult times for your child and our school system, and your educational concerns are our concerns. Our goal is to keep the negative impact to you and your child to a minimum.  There are no easy solutions to all problems, but we remain committed to the best educational interests of your child.

 

Sincerely,

Philip Martin, Superintendent

Events & Headlines

The staff at Louis Miller Terrebonne Career and Technical High School wants to thank all the students that participated in the online Virtual contest. We know there were obstacles with the format but given the situation we all made the best of what we had. 

 

The results of this this year’s championships are posted below. When reviewing the results keep in mind that this is the results from the online testing ONLY and that not every student from every school were able to test.

 

Also due to the unfortunate circumstances the national SkillsUSA office has canceled the National Skills and Leadership conference for 2020. The SkillsUSA LA board of directors also decided that because of the lack of physical skills testing that prizes and metals should be suspended for the 2020 year including any award ceremony. 1st , 2nd and 3rd place winners will be receiving an award certificate , State T Shirt and should still be eligible for scholarships.
