DeSoto Parish School System

  • Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,

    Welcome back! As we reconvened last week we welcomed 5,102 students including 344 members of the Senior Class of 2019, and 366 Kindergarteners who represent the Class of 2031.

    A tone of enthusiasm and excitement was evident within each of our schools. Our buildings were sparkling, and our teachers and students eased quickly and easily into their routines. I am excited about the new and challenging opportunities this year will bring for our students. 

    We have a great opportunity to make our best even better.  Thanks for the role you play in making DeSoto Parish a great place to work and live!

    For Students' Sake,

    Clay J. Corley
