News and Announcements

Homecoming Alert

From the office of Mr.Kirk Credeur, Assistant Superintendent-Homecoming in Jefferson Davis Parish is a special time where schools and communities come together and celebrate their sports teams, school experiences, communities, and rich school traditions. Many of these traditions and activities of school spirit are fun and harmless however a growing trend is that some homecoming activities are becoming destructive. While most of our students follow all rules and exhibit appropriate behavior the Sherriff and local police departments are receiving a disturbing number of complaints where student pranks have elevated to criminal behavior. In a recent meeting with the District Attorney and police officials, law enforcement clarified that there will be a hard line held to individuals who trespass, violate curfew laws, damage property, and assist juveniles to break the law. We want everyone to have fond memories of their school homecoming experiences but in no way do we condone illegal, destructive, and dangerous behaviors.

District Spotlight

Jefferson Davis Administrators

The district spotlight goes to the school administrators of Jeff Davis parish.  These principals and assistant principals worked tirelessly throughout the weekend and Monday to clean up flooding in some schools, while preparing other schools for possible flooding to come.  Teamwork was the name of the game.  It was evident by the actions of this group of dedicated professionals that they are an important part of the Jeff Davis school district family.  
Pictured are just a few of the principals that helped clean up Jennings Elementary after their flooding on Saturday.
