Prairieville, La. – Galvez Middle School will return to its home campus on Monday, Mar. 13, 2017. The move-in date comes on the heels of a successful Fire Marshal inspection completed today.
Over 600 Galvez Middle students will attend school on their home campus in temporary facilities that include a dining hall, library, band tent and 26 classrooms. The school's administration building did not flood and will remain a central component of school operations.
"This is our last flooded school to move out of a host situation and back to its campus," said Ascension Public Schools Superintendent David Alexander. "The Galvez Middle Pirates are coming home!"
Teachers will move classroom materials from host site Central Middle School over the weekend in preparation for the start of school on Monday. Parents will receive communications from Principal Michelle Bourque detailing logistics such as schedule, bus and car rider drop-off/pick-up and classroom locations.
Monday's move marks the end of host situations that went into effect after the August flood. St. Amant High School returned to its campus on Feb. 13, 2017, Galvez Primary returned on Mar. 2, 2017, and Lake Elementary and St. Amant Primary moved on Mar. 6, 2017.
"Work will continue moving forward on restoring permanent facilities at each flooded site, and we are committed to keeping our community informed of every step in our recovery process," said Alexander.
