DISTRICT NEWS, A message regarding the November 4th Election - 2014.10.24

Dear Community Members –

In preparation for the Tuesday, November 4th election, we, along with the Ascension Parish Clerk of Courts Office and Ascension Parish Registrar of Voters, have compiled some pertinent information in regards to the election.

Several polling place locations have changed or have been added due to 2014 mandates and also in an effort to reduce the number of voters in high growth and heavily populated areas in the parish.  Everyone that is affected by a change should have recently received a new voter registration card in the mail. 

Early voting is from Tuesday, October 21st through Tuesday, October 28th (excluding Sunday) from 8:30 AM to 6 PM. You may early vote at the Registrar of Voters Office at the Courthouse in Gonzales (located on the 2nd floor) or at the Courthouse in Donaldsonville.

The primary election is on Tuesday, November 4th. Voting times are from 6 AM to 8 PM at all locations. If you need assistance in locating your polling location or if you have any questions you may:

• View the attached list of polling location changes,
• View the attached list of all polling locations in the parish,
• Visit the Louisiana Secretary of State’s website at, or download their free mobile app called GeauxVote, or

DISTRICT NEWS, Simulated Emergency Exercises Scheduled - 2014.08.22

Simulated Emergency Exercises Scheduled

Parents and Community Leaders –
Our school system in conjunction with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Gonzales Police Department and emergency services will participate in a number of simulated emergency exercises (specifically, lock down drills) in schools throughout our school district beginning the week of September 2, 2014 and continuing periodically throughout the school year.
The ultimate goal of these exercises is to ensure the continued safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff throughout our school district. By conducting these exercises, we will learn from the experiences of simulated emergencies in a school setting. This will allow for us to continuously improve our preparedness and response efforts to emergency situations.
It is important to note that these exercises are simulated scenarios only and will be closely monitored by law enforcement partners, emergency personnel and our school officials. These exercises will not involve simulated actors or props.
In an effort to increase awareness additional communication will be sent to parents and guardians when lock down exercises are being conducted.
The Ascension Parish School Board, the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office and Gonzales Police Department hold the highest priorities for our students’ safety; therefore, partnering around these exercises will only serve to improve our response to actual emergency situations.
