LAFAYETTE, LA - LPSS would like to welcome families displaced by Hurricane Ida and transition students back to school.

Beginning Tuesday, September 7, 2021, all displaced families wishing to enroll in Lafayette Parish Schools should report to the Vermilion Conference Center (VCC) located at 326 Gauthier Road in Lafayette, LA between the hours of 8 a.m. - 2 p.m., Monday - Friday (excluding district holidays) for assistance with registration. Upon arrival at VCC please check in with the receptionist and then visit the large conferenceroom.

A staff member from LPSS’s Displaced and Homeless Education Services will assist you with the necessary paperwork and connect with the student’s current school district as needed. This program is designed to help students displaced by hurricanes or flooding qualify for homeless status if they are sharing housing with other persons; including those who are doubled-up with family members; or are living in shelters, motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to lack of adequate accommodations.

LPSS welcomes all new students to the district, and we want to thank you for your cooperation and patience as we work to get everyone registered and settled. For so many families, this is a most challenging time, and we want students impacted by the storm to have minimal disruption to teaching and learning.

As a reminder, masks are required for entry to VCC, as with all LPSS facilities. In addition, temperatures will be checked, as LPSS follows all safety protocols to keep students and staff safe.
