NDUE would like to give a shout-out to one of our own, very talented Griffins, Miss Whitley Chadwick! This past weekend, she competed at the Louisiana Music Teacher's Association Piano Rally. She was awarded first in her age group and the Outstanding Achievement Award for scoring near perfect in all categories. She is now eligible to go on to compete at the state level in June! We are so excited for her and cannot wait to hear about her state competition this summer! Go Whitley! #LEADLikeaGriffin #DesotoStrong

The new plan prioritizes many of the priorities identified by the community in the survey including improved traffic patterns and a focus on academic areas instead of athletic spaces. With the $85.2 million bond proposal, district 2 would see: -Improved traffic patterns -Expanded NDLE with seven new classrooms, new restrooms, new occupational and physical therapy spaces, new library, new administration offices and removal of T-buildings -A New High School for 900 students (functional capacity not maximum capacity) -Increased CTE spaces -Adjusted capacity for HS cafeteria (900 instead of 1,200 to seat half the student population at once) and gymnasium (1,400 instead of 1,800) -In lieu of a full theater, the plan includes a 450-seat multipurpose space with audience-style seating. This space could be used for drama, cheer, dance, wrestling and other activities when retractable seating is pushed back. https://www.desotopsb.com/o/desoto-parish-schools/page/nd-bond-24-the-plan

Our parking lot gets very full this time of year as 3 grade levels of children are driving in our shared space. Please avoid the center parking area if you can during morning arrival and before to 3:05pm. Coming a little later to park for walk up will help let our teenage drivers off campus. Walk-up in the morning is primarily intended for HS students, employees, families with students with disabilities, meetings, and bringing in other items such as cupcakes or projects to the office. Cars must be parked in a parking space to utilize walkup and a supervising caregiver must walk the child all the way to the crosswalk. Our traffic lines have not changed. Please enter and follow the bus loop around the school. The inside lane is for 2nd and 3rd grade the outside lane is for 4th, 5th, and family/carpool. Walk-up in the afternoon is the same as well. A supervising caregiver must come to the crosswalk to escort their child to the car. All vehicles must be parked in a parking place. Public Drop off begins at 7:20 am and dismissal is at 3:13pm. Practice the "D" in our LEAD expectations by Doing what is right and following these rules! Thanks #LEADlikeaGriffin PS: Do not forget to GO VOTE April 27th!
