4/13/21 Dear Parents and Guardians, The severe weather conditions today caused a few issues with power outages on the Vintage and Loyola campuses. The Loyola Campus has a widespread power outage and the building is using a backup generator for partial emergency power. Entergy is working on restoring power but we are unable to confirm that power will be restored in time for school tomorrow. All High School students will stay home tomorrow and attend all classes online (synchronously) following their regular class schedule. Vintage Campus has power outages throughout all of the buildings from blown ballasts. Electricians will be working tomorrow to restore electricity. Vintage internet connectivity on campus is down due to the widespread issues with power. All 5th-8th grade students will stay home tomorrow and attend all classes online (synchronously) following their regular class schedule. Click here to access the updated middle school student schedule. K-4th Maine campus electricity and internet connectivity is functioning properly. All K-4th grade students will attend school on campus tomorrow following their regular daily schedule. Community Works aftercare will run its regular schedule tomorrow. K-4th DJOD campus electricity and internet connectivity is functioning properly. All K-4th grade students will attend school on campus tomorrow following their regular daily schedule. Community Works aftercare will run its regular schedule tomorrow. We will continue to monitor the weather closely and notify you if there are any changes. Stay Safe & Dry, Discovery Schools Administration

Parents: We are busily preparing for the 2021-2022 school year. If you have not already done this, it is time to log on to On Course and complete the mandatory re-enrollment form. The form is quick and easy to complete. It should take less than 5 minutes. Re-enrollment holds your child's seat and allows us to determine the number of available seats at each grade level as we prepare for the lottery. Even with an unusual year, we are a high demand school. We have 2,600 applicants for 400 seats. We want to thank you for your patience, support, and agility in this most unusual year. With vaccines and lower virus numbers in Jefferson Parish, we are planning and hoping that next year will be an ordinary school year. Thank you for trusting us to educate your child(ren). With HEART, Dr. Glaser
