As we close out the 2018-19 school year, I want to thank you, our students, and our staff for an incredible year. We recently graduated the Class of 2019 and many people, most importantly our families and educators, have supported these students along their journey from kindergarten to graduation. Our graduates are leaving us prepared and ready to positively improve their community, enter a career, and or extend their education. I hope they are also leaving our West Baton Rouge School System fulfilled, connected and excited about their future.
Together we have accomplished so many great things this school year. Just a few highlights are listed below:
Thank you to our families, community, business and industry partners, and many others who have provided so much support for our schools. Because of you we are nearing the completion of a $90 million Building Plan. This fall we will open additions and renovations at Port Allen Elementary, Lukeville Elementary, and Port Allen High School. These improvements will vastly improve the safety and learning environments at those schools. Also, our two new schools, Caneview K-8 and Brusly High are under construction. Caneview is scheduled to open in 2019 and Brusly High in 2020. We will also soon begin improvements at Port Allen Middle, Brusly Middle, and the current Brusly High in 2020.
Our central office staff, school administrators, and teachers will be working hard over the summer to prepare for the 2019-2020 school year. Our staff will be preparing new classrooms, participating in trainings, and creating opportunities for all of our students to excel. We look forward to greeting your child on the first day of school, getting to know you better, and partnering to ensure the needs of every student are known and supported.
