According to state guidelines and our school system calendar, an elementary or middle school student is not allowed more than twelve (12) unexcused absences during the school year in order to receive grades and be considered for promotion to the next grade. In order for a student to receive a grade in any nine-week period, he/she must be present thirty-five (35) days. Students in grades K-8 must be in attendance a minimum of 160 days per year to receive credit for the year’s work.
Student’s attendance is calculated by hours. A day consists of seven hours. Hours are calculated and when they total 3 ½ hours it is a half day and 7 hours is a whole day.
Our school system recognizes the reasons listed below that would result in an absence being classified as an excused absence. Excused absences do not count toward the total number of absences a student is allowed during the school year.
REASONS FOR EXCUSED ABSENCES
- A physical or emotional illness as verified by a doctor’s note within five (5) days of the absence(s).
- Serious immediate family illness as verified by a physician.
- Death in immediate family, not to exceed five (5) school days.
- Observance of special and recognized religious holidays as verified by the appropriate clergy.
- School system approved travel for education trips.
- Natural catastrophe and/or disaster.
- Absences between the hearing and an appeal before the school board. All other absences due to suspensions are unexcused.
- An extended hospital stay as verified by a doctor’s note.
- An extended recuperation from an accident as verified by a doctor’s note.
- An extended contagious disease with a family as verified by a doctor’s note.
For any other extenuating circumstance(s), parents/legal guardians must make a formal appeal to the Supervisor of Child Welfare and Attendance at the appropriate region office.
Regular attendance at school raises a child’s chances of passing to the next grade tremendously. Please monitor your child’s attendance closely.
MAKE-UP WORK AND CREDIT
For excused absences of five (5) or more consecutive days, the student will be given the opportunity to initiate and complete make up work within ten (10) school days after returning to school. Extension of time may be granted at the discretion of a school administrator and the teacher in cases of extended illness.
For excused absences of less than five (5) consecutive days, the allotted time to make up the work is left to the discretion of the teacher. However, it should not exceed (10) school days.
Students will be in class on time. When students arrive late, they miss valuable classroom instruction.
Therefore, whenever a student has been tardy four (4) times, a Probation Notice will be issued.

To use the MealPay Plus, you will need your child’s student ID number to log in, this is found on the student lunch card or you may contact the office. There is no additional charge for this service.
- Should a student receive a detention, he/she is required to report to school at 8:00 A.M. or noted time on the designated day.
- Students must be brought into the office for detention by an adult or they will be issued another detention.
- If the student cannot serve the detention due to an extenuating circumstance, it is the parent’s responsibility to contact the teacher and request that the detention date be rescheduled. A detention will only be rescheduled one time.
- If the detention is not served, the student will be suspended.
- Parents must discuss their children’s progress with teachers. Conferences may be scheduled before school, after school, or during planning (P.E.) period. There are three scheduled Parent Conference Days during the school year, Oct. 21st , Jan. 13th, and March 24th. Times to be announced.

The Jefferson Parish School Board maintains that homework is an important resource in helping students learn and should be an integral part of the instructional program in grades K-12. For the homework program to be successful, however, teachers, parents, students and administrators must work closely together to assure that the homework assignment is a worthwhile experience.
Homework is a meaningful and productive experience if all persons involved share in the responsibility. It is the teacher’s responsibility to clearly explain the assignment and due date. All homework will be checked on the date due and parent will be informed if the student repeatedly fails to turn in completed assignments. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide the materials needed and a quiet, well-lighted place where the child can do homework. Parents must supervise homework so that good study habits are practiced but parents must never do the assignment for the child. Parents must insist that the child assumes the responsibility of completing assignments properly and completely. It is the student’s responsibility to pay attention in class to ask questions if he doesn’t understand and to copy down the assignment correctly. Students must select a quiet place, work carefully, and complete all assignments.
Homework will be assigned a minimum of three (3) times per week in each promotional subject and a minimum of once per week in each extended skill area in K-3.
Please remember that all homework is not written and it is very important for your child to read orally to someone every night. In the fourth and fifth grades, an adult should help the student prepare for tests by going over assigned material with him/her.
Homework does count as part of the child’s participation grade along with class work and participation. This counts as 1/4 of a student’s grade. Those students not completing homework assignments will not be allowed to participate in free time activities. Students who do all homework assignments each month will be awarded with a dress down pass.
At the end of each nine weeks period, award certificates will be given to those who have achieved the Honor Roll.
- A Honor Roll – A student earns an A or S in every subject, including conduct, except Handwriting.
- B Honor Roll – A student earns an A, B or S in every subject, including conduct, except Handwriting
To be on the A or B Honor Roll, a student can make no lower than a B or S in conduct.
Grading Scale: A = 93-100 B = 85-92 C = 75-84 D = 67-74 F = 66 and below
- Homework assignments must be completed and turned in when due.
- No pets are allowed on the school campus without permission from an administrator.
- No wheeled luggage or school bags are allowed. No exceptions and no doctor’s notes will be accepted. Wheeled book bags are a safety hazard on the stairs and in the halls.
- Do not bring any materials to school, which are not on the supply list unless specified by the teacher.
LOST AND FOUND
- All articles that are found should be turned in to the teacher or the office.
- Any student who has lost something should ask to check for the article in the office.
- Parents are welcome to come to the office to check for lost articles.
- All articles left at the end of the year will be donated to a charitable organization.
- Please put your child’s name on all belongings (supplies, jackets, sweatshirts, lunch boxes, etc.)
- The School is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
All textbooks must be covered by the end of August. Do not tape, glue, or use contact paper on the books. Any damaged or lost book must be paid for before another book is issued. Please be aware of the following lost and damaged textbook policy:
- If a student loses or damages a textbook or library book during the school year, he will not be issued another textbook or library book until parents have made arrangements for payment.
- If, at the end of a school year, a student owes for a lost or damaged textbook or library book, the parents will be notified that he will not be permitted to reenter a Jefferson Parish School or to enter the summer school session unless arrangements for payment have been made. Should a student not be registered in school for a total of five days because parents have been negligent in making arrangements for payment the case will be turned over to the Supervisor of Child Welfare and Attendance for appropriate action under Act 109.
- If a student attempts to register at another school within or outside the Jefferson Parish School System, the school to which the parents have financial obligation will withhold all records until such financial obligation are cleared.
- Book socks are sold by the P.T.O. and some paper book covers are given to students at the beginning of the school year.
SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICYPlease click here to view C.T. Janet’s uniform policy.
A bus student must have a note if he/she is not going to ride the bus home. The note must state who will pick up the student. This note must be turned in to the teacher when the student arrives at school. If a student does not have a note, and a parent can’t be reached by phone, the student will be placed on the bus. Students may ride only the bus to which they are assigned. The same behavior expected in school is expected on the bus. Misbehavior on the bus endangers the safety of all students on the bus and will not be tolerated. Behavior on the bus is also tied into the Positive Behavior Plan and can cause a student not to receive a band.
TELEPHONE MESSAGES FOR STUDENTS/CELL PHONES
Telephone messages cannot be given to students concerning how they should go home or where they should go. The office staff has no way of knowing who the caller is and whether the information is accurate. Students are not allowed to have cell phones on campus.
The information on emergency cards is very important. If a child becomes sick or is injured, we must be able to contact a parent. Please be sure your child has an emergency card on file and please keep the phone numbers current. Remember that students may be released only to persons listed on the emergency card. We must have three (3) working numbers at all times or student will be suspended. If it is found that an emergency card is not current the parent will be notified by letter and must update the card within 24 hours to avoid the student from being suspended. The school office will not make long distance phone calls.
Parents are asked to park in the side parking lot when coming to school for any reason. No parking in front driveway. This is for school buses only. No parking is permitted in front of the cafeteria doors or in the traffic lanes. If you are waiting for a student, please park in a designated parking place. Please remember the handicap spaces are only for vehicles that have the required handicap permit. Do not park in special marked/designated spots. When dropping off or picking up a child for child care, please park in a parking place.
STUDENT DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP
All cars must enter the parking lot through the back gate and proceed to the driving lane closest to the school building in a single file line. Place your child’s name in LARGE PRINT on a sheet of paper in your windshield to assist with the carpool process. If name is not displayed you will be asked to park and get out for your child. Do not get out of line to go around other vehicles. This is very dangerous for students getting in and out of vehicles. Stay in line. If you are dropping off or picking up a student, you must proceed to the canopy by the cafeteria. This is the safest means of drop-off and pick-up for the students due to the large amount of traffic. After you have dropped off or picked up your child, you are to proceed to the front gate to exit the school grounds. Drive slowly. This gate is also an entrance for faculty and staff, so please allow for employees of the school access to this gate.
Parking in the driving lane is not allowed at any time. Only stopping to drop-off or pick-up children is allowed. If a child is not waiting in the cafeteria, you must park in a regular parking place or drive around. We cannot allow anyone to stop and block everyone else. This procedure is the same for all school days. Do not block the entrance, exit gates, or an available parking space.
Students are not to be dropped off or picked up on Bent Tree, in front of the school, or through the BUS LOADING ZONE. Students are never to be dropped off and allowed to walk through the parking lot unattended. They are not to walk through the parking lot unattended in the afternoon. You are endangering your child when these rules are not followed.
The crossing guard is there to ensure the safety of our students. It is imperative that all follow the guard’s directives. All students and parents crossing the street must cross with the crossing guard.
NO CHECKS ALLOWED. All payments to the school and cafeteria must be cash only or cashier’s check. Checks are allowed for Pre-K tuition only. All payments must be turned in by 10:00a.m., no money will be accepted after 10:00 a.m.
In the event of bad weather or possible closing of school, please listen to WWL radio (87AM) for instructions from the school system. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office between 8:30 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. at 340-0487
All field trip permission forms will be sent home about 2 weeks prior to the trip. The deadline date will be stated on this form. No money or permission forms will be accepted after the deadline date. No money or permission forms will be accepted after 10:00 a.m. on the due date. If a parent misses the deadline date and decides to take their child on the field trip themselves, they will be considered a regular visitor to the location and will not be allowed to participate with the school group or receive the group price for admission. In order for a chaperone to attend a field trip, the chaperone contract MUST be signed and returned. Because payments to secure reservations are due ahead of time, no refunds can be given to any student or chaperone that is unable to attend for any reason, including illness and behavior.
GUIDELINES FOR FIELD TRIP CHAPERONES
In order to attend a field trip as a chaperone, a chaperone form must be completed and returned to school in September.
POLICY FOR CANINE SEARCHES
In order to provide a drug-free environment for students and employees, the Jefferson Parish School Board shall authorize searches of school board property and automobiles parked on school property using the services of canines whose reliability and accuracy for sniffing out contraband has been established.
POLICY FOR SEARCH WITH METAL DETECTORS
In order to provide a safer environment for students and employee, the Jefferson Parish School Board shall authorize searches with a hand-held or stationary metal detector of school board property, of students and non-students, and/or any bags, parcels, purses, containers, etc., that they bring on the school property or to school sponsored activities.
It is the policy of the Jefferson Parish Public School System not to discriminate in its educational programs, activities or employment policies on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; on the basis of sex as required by the Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments, or on the basis of disabilities as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
The school system also complies with the requirements of Title IV of the General Education Provisions Act, as amended, protecting the privacy of educational records.
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT
This is to advise the public that the Jefferson Parish Public School System will make available to applicants, participants, beneficiaries, and other interested persons, information regarding the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act and its applicability to the services, programs, or activities of the district, and make such information available to them in such a manner to apprise such persons of the protection against discrimination assured by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Our school building has been examined for the presence of asbestos. According to the inspection report prepared by Asbestos Environmental Controls, the facility is asbestos free. Therefore, a management plan is not required.
Parental involvement is an important ingredient of our children’s education. We at C.T. Janet Elementary School encourage all our parents to become active in their child’s education and volunteer in the classrooms, go on field trips, join the PTO, and participate in school sponsored activities. It is a really easy process. Go to the office and sign the volunteer book and get a pass. The pass must be worn at all times. When you leave sign out and turn in your pass. No other children are allowed when volunteering.
Class size in grades K-3 is 26 students to 1 teacher and in grades 4-5, 33 students to 1 teacher. With this in mind, our teachers are always looking for some extra help in the classroom. Parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and siblings over 18 years of age are welcomed to come make copies, laminate, file papers, read to students, help students with review skills, etc…
The Parent Resource Room is open. Parents may come with their children to use resource books, games and computers. Parents may also use this room to work in during the day. Parents should call the school to reserve a time.
The following is a list of scheduled opportunities for parental involvement. However, there will be many others during the school year. Please look for weekly notices in your child’s folder and monthly newsletters, which will contain information on upcoming activities. All dates are tentative and may change.
