Message from FAFSA for Seniors

During this trying time, I would like you to know that you and your
families are in our thoughts and prayers. We appreciate all that you
are doing to prepare the Class of 2020 for graduation.

Please know that we are continuing to work individually with seniors
to prepare them for the student financial aid process, which begins
with completion of the FAFSA. Spread the word to Seniors and their
parents that virtual FAFSA completion assistance is available by
calling our FAFSA HELPline at (844) 463-2372.

STUDENTS WHO HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED THE FAFSA SHOULD REGISTER FOR A $1000 SCHOLARSHIP AT https://lela.org/completed_fafsa/

Stay safe and call me if I can be of assistance.

FAFSA Completion Coordinator

FBLA Conference Refund

As you know, the FBLA State Leadership Conference was cancelled due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus.  We are in the process of refunding the funds paid to Homer FBLA for the state conference. There is no need to call or setup a pickup date, checks will be made payable to the parent and mailed out sometime next week.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Claiborne Parish Meal Services

On Sunday March 22nd, Governor Edwards issued a stay-at-home order to begin Monday, March 23rd, at 5:00 pm and lasting until April 12th. Out of an abundance of caution for Claiborne Parish School Board employees, as well as, parents and students, we will discontinue our food service meal program that was scheduled to resume on Monday, March 30th. This will allow our staff the ability to honor the stay-at-home order just like everyone else.
Understanding that some families need meals, we have applied to become part of the “Meals-to-You” program run by Baylor University. The program ships meals directly to homes that have a desire to receive them. This would allow parents/guardians the ability to stay at home and limit their exposure as well. This morning our application was accepted. Once approved, we will post information on our Facebook page and do a call out, as well, to notify you how to proceed to become part of this program if you so desire.
This is a situation like none we have ever seen before. PLEASE follow the Governor’s order by social distancing and staying at home as much as possible. I hope and pray that you all remain safe and healthy during these trying times.
Sincerely,

William Kennedy
