SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Dear Lycée Families,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Kim Conner-Davis as the interim principal of the Lower School Campus of Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans. In July, Mrs. Conner-Davis joined the team as the assistant principal of the Lower School Campus. She comes to Lycée Français as an experienced, multi-area certified classroom educator and school leader of 20 years. Her areas of expertise include science, math, ELA, ESL, 504, special education, student discipline, RTI, Title I, and testing. She has been a member of national and statewide educational standards committees, school steering committees, local school councils, and neighborhood improvement committees throughout several schools and residential districts in Louisiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. She has won numerous awards in science education and presented at several local and national science and technology conferences. 
 
As a native of Southern Louisiana and the daughter of an elementary school principal and teacher, Mrs. Conner-Davis has a strong French and educational heritage. Therefore, she not only believes but lives Lycée Français’s mission. When commenting on her appointment, she remarked, “I look forward to an amazing opportunity where my passion, dedication, and experience in educating diverse groups of students can help inspire and support the French teaching and learning process—ensuring that every child has an exceptional academic experience.”
 
I am thrilled that Mrs. Conner-Davis has accepted the interim principal position, and I am confident that her solid educational background, teaching experiences, and leadership expertise are an excellent match for Lycée Français. Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Kim Conner-Davis as the interim principal of the Lower School Campus of Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans.

We are aware that many families have been impacted by the Hurricane. If you think your child was affected by the event and you would like some follow up support, please reach out to your child’s grade level counselor.


We have also included a link below to some resources for families and children that are specifically geared toward mental health and coping after a natural disaster. LINK to resources. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any needs that you may have during this difficult time.
Amis Du Lycée Update
I hope that you and your family are well. I would like to share an update on the Alfred C. Priestley building renovation and restoration project following Hurricane Ida.
 
John Vollman, our Priestley project manager and liaison who is also a parent at Lycée Français, is happy to report that there doesn't appear to be any significant damage to Priestley from Ida. The job site is open and slowly coming back to life. The historic oak trees on the school grounds suffered minimal damage with only a few branches down.
 
Thank you for your support of Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans and the Room to Grow Capital Campaign.
 
With kind regards,

Back to School Night information:
In a traditional school year normally we would open the school doors for all of you to experience a snippet of your student's typical school experience. Given the Covid-19 safety precautions in place as well as Hurricane IDA, we sadly cannot welcome you to campus at this time. Instead, your Back to School Night experience will be asynchronous virtual experiences with each of the teachers. Please see details for this Virtual Back to School Night experience:

3rd through 5th Grade: This Wednesday, 9/22 around 4 pm, each of your child's teachers will send you an email with a pre-recorded video presenting academic content and expectations for this school year. You will receive three emails, one from your child’s homeroom teacher, one from your child’s ELA teacher, and one from the music teacher.

6th and 7th Grade: This Wednesday, 9/22 around 4 pm, each of your child's teachers will send you an email with a pre-recorded video presenting their syllabus and academic content and expectations for this school year. Although it will result in many emails in your inbox, we determined it was best to share with you in this way so that you have a direct line of communication with each teacher, as needed.

We encourage you to watch these videos at your leisure, ideally with your child so that they can fill in additional information relevant to the course and their experience thus far.
