|DISTRICT NEWS, EA Spartans vs. St. Amant Gators Football Game - 2014.10.30
Dear Parents, Guardians and Members of the Community –
As you know this Friday night the EA Spartans visit The Pit to take on the St. Amant Gators. These football rivals have played against one another for decades, and have left fans with numerous memorable moments from some phenomenal games.
One of the greatest outcomes of this rivalry is the community participation and celebratory activities both before and after the game. This is one of the many things that make Ascension Parish such a special place to live.
We know that many fans will be ready to start those festivities early on Friday before game time; however, we wanted to take just a moment to provide you with some important details.
Because The Pit is located on the St. Amant Middle / Primary School campus and Friday is a normal school day for students we will be unable to allow tailgaters and game parking visitors on to the school campus until 3:30 PM. This is to allow time for our students, faculty and staff to exit the campus without disruption.
We appreciate your excitement for the game and the support of our students, and we thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
Enjoy the game!
The Ascension Parish School Board

|DISTRICT NEWS, Simulated Emergency Exercises Scheduled - 2014.08.22
Simulated Emergency Exercises Scheduled
Parents and Community Leaders –
Our school system in conjunction with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Gonzales Police Department and emergency services will participate in a number of simulated emergency exercises (specifically, lock down drills) in schools throughout our school district beginning the week of September 2, 2014 and continuing periodically throughout the school year.
The ultimate goal of these exercises is to ensure the continued safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff throughout our school district. By conducting these exercises, we will learn from the experiences of simulated emergencies in a school setting. This will allow for us to continuously improve our preparedness and response efforts to emergency situations.
It is important to note that these exercises are simulated scenarios only and will be closely monitored by law enforcement partners, emergency personnel and our school officials. These exercises will not involve simulated actors or props.
In an effort to increase awareness additional communication will be sent to parents and guardians when lock down exercises are being conducted.
The Ascension Parish School Board, the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office and Gonzales Police Department hold the highest priorities for our students’ safety; therefore, partnering around these exercises will only serve to improve our response to actual emergency situations.
