The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish School Board:
The Calcasieu Parish School Board has determined new attendance zones for Cypress Cove Elementary.
All students affected by the re-zoning of Cypress Cove (formerly D. S. Perkins), Frasch, W. T. Henning and Vincent Settlement Elementary Schools will be notified by mail in the very near future of their new school assignments.
In order to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the adjusted zones for these schools, all students currently enrolled in Cypress Cove, Frasch, W. T. Henning and Vincent Settlement Elementary Schools will be required to verify their address at the school during the registration process at the start of the 2011-2012 school year. The parents/guardians of the students in these four schools will be notified by mail and through the media of the dates, times and information required to register their child and verify their address.
Child Welfare and Attendance personnel will be at each of these four schools during registration to help with these verifications. Any question concerning a student's address will require a visit to the home prior to a permit to register being issued.
