    An Important Message from Mrs. flanders

    Hello Little Griffin Families,

    As you know, there are many resources available to you by clicking the View All Updates button at the bottom of the COVID-19 Update box at the top of this webpage. These resources include educational links, information about food distribution, and FAQs to keep you up-to-date and informed as things continually change. 

    Our typical PreK Roundup will not take place, but please register online to secure a spot for your future Griffin. If you need any assistance, please feel free to email me at 

    I am incredibly proud of how our district and communities are working together to ensure the safety of all. I appreciate all of you maintaining your positive spirits as all our lives have changed in the blink of an eye. Please know I am here for you, and I know the rest of the NDLE family will support you in any way they can.

    Stay well and healthy,

    Bridget Flanders

    Please see the following updates from the Department of Student Learning:

    • Work packets will no longer be printed and placed at distribution locations.  All work packet materials are found on the DeSoto Parish Schools website under the link "Home Learning Guidance and Resources"...within the Google Classrooms. 
    • Home Learning Resources will be updated each Monday by noon except for the week of Spring Break.
    • The learning resources are classified in Google Classroom by subject and grade level (classroom codes are provided).  
    • In addition to the google classroom resources, there is a large listing of general resources to support all grade levels.
    • Remember electronic devices that have internet access go beyond the traditional laptop or desktop.  Some other devices are:  iPad/tablet, Kindle fire, PS4, xbox live, cell phones, etc.  We are working to educate parents on these alternate devices so more students can have access to the materials.
    • The learning resources are not mandated.  They are to support the learning that has already taken place this year and are aligned to Tier 1/highly effective curriculum.
