Dear Lycée Community,
Welcome back! We shared this wonderful news on social media but want to express our excitement and appreciation again. Lycée formally received confirmation of French accreditation for grades 7, 8, and 9. We are the only school in Louisiana accredited for grade 9. Additionally, we were officially approved as a testing site for the Brevet des Collèges. Our students will test at our school - no more organized out-of-state trips to test for the French Middle School diploma. 
Thank you to the many people who helped complete the application, this involved a lot of work procuring data and information, and participating in interviews with the inspector. We greatly appreciate all those who helped make this tremendous undertaking possible; when we work together, we grow and progress  
Safety is our priority and it is important that we remain vigilant post Thanksgiving to reduce community spread. As you may know, we have added a dashboard to our COVID-19 page that indicates COVID-19 positive cases of students and staff at each campus, and district staff, those who work at both campuses; this banner is updated each week on Friday. Please refer to our COVID-19 Procedures and Operational Guidelines and the School COVID-19 Screening Decision tree for more health and safety practices information. Stay safe!
