Transportation Information: Bus Routes

Dear Lycée Families,

Thank you for a good first day of school. All went very well within our walls,  however the bus company performance was simply unacceptable. We realize that a number of you depend on our buses to get your child to and from school safely and on time. Today we worked with the bus company to draft updated and more reliable pick up points and times. Please know that, starting tomorrow, buses will leave earlier. Updated bus routes have been uploaded below for your information. Looking forward to a better day tomorrow.

Sincerely,
Marina Schoen

Louisiana Green Schools Challenge: Lycée places 3rd and creates dedication garden to Mr. Keith

Our talented students placed 3rd in the 2018 Louisiana Green Schools Challenge, in which students have to show green practices at our school! On the last day of school during our ‘End of Year’ Johnson Ceremony Erin Ryerson presented the award to our students. Much to Mr. Keith’s surprise, students created a garden from some of their award funds and dedicated it to him. We are so grateful for our mentors from Okra Abbey, Crawford Brubaker and Catherine Parler. Thank you to all who made this project possible, especially our gifted teachers, Molly Liberto and Simone Feaster-Armour!
