Welcome to the parent section of the Jefferson Parish Public School System’s (JPPSS) outreach site. Whether you are already established in the area or new to our system, we hope the information on this site will help answer any questions you may have. If not, please feel free to contact us and we can point you in the right direction.
Research shows that parental involvement in school boosts student performance and confidence, so we are excited to partner with you. Whether you volunteer everyday, meet once a month with the PTO, or attend school family functions, your presence is valuable to us.
We truly believe through parent partnerships, we can better educate our students. We know the best way to help our students is to help you, the parent. We have started quarterly parent meetings in which workshops on a variety of topics are presented like: How to Become Better Readers and Career and Technical Education, can be discussed. These sessions conveniently take place on both sides of the river. On the Westbank meetings are at JPPSS Administration Building at 501 Manhattan Blvd, Harvey, La, 70058 and on the Eastbank at the Emenes Bldg at 822 S.Clearview Pkwy, Harahan, La 70121.
Another way we would love to partner with you is through your child’s school PTO. Parent-Teacher Organizations are a great way to meet other families in your child’s class and school. It’s also a chance for you as a parent to bring in your skills and talent to help build the school community and environment that you, the administration and the organization envision. So join your child’s PTO today!
We look forward to working with you!
