Lake Elementary and St. Amant Primary to Move on Monday, Mar. 6, 2017

St. Amant, La. – Lake Elementary and St. Amant Primary will move to single sites on Monday, Mar. 6, 2017. That means Lake Elementary will move from host sites Duplessis Primary, Prairieville Middle and the old RPCC campus to temporary facilities on its home campus. Simultaneously, St. Amant Primary will move its PreK through second grades from G.W. Carver Primary to the old RPCC campus so that the entire school is on a single site.

"We are excited for the Lake Lions and St. Amant Primary Cubs to be reunited after more than six months attending school at multiple host sites. This is yet another significant step toward our flood recovery, and we are very appreciative of all the hard work of internal and external partners that have made this happen," said Ascension Public Schools Superintendent David Alexander.

Teachers will move classroom materials over the weekend in preparation for the start of school on Monday. Parents will receive communications from their respective principals detailing logistics such as schedule, bus and car rider drop-off/pick-up and classroom locations.

St. Amant High School returned to its campus on Feb. 13, 2017, and Galvez Primary returned on Mar. 2, 2017. After Lake Elementary and St. Amant Primary's move, the last flooded school to leave a host site will be Galvez Middle.
