New Jefferson Parish PK-8 Schools to Host Look & Learns for Families

Jefferson Parish families are invited to spend some time learning about the opportunities available at the nine new PK-8 schools in Jefferson Parish Schools.

Each of the new public schools, which will serve students in grades kindergarten through eighth, is hosting a Look & Learn for families who live in that school’s district. These 45 minute sessions will be an opportunity for families to hear from the school’s principal about how their child can grow through 8th grade at their school.

“Our new PK-8s will offer the highest rated curriculum in the state, enriching athletics and extracurricular activities, and a safe, nurturing environment where students are prepared for high school and beyond,” said JP Schools Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley. “We’re inviting prospective families to spend a little time with us to learn what’s possible with Jefferson Parish Schools.”

Registration opens July 17 for students new to JP Schools who will attend kindergarten through 12th grade in 2019-20. Students can be registered weekdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the school they will attend. Registration will not take place on the first day of school, August 8.
