Please open this tab for important news regarding renovations to Fischer this summer!

May 24, 2016

As this school year draws to a close, the Fischer Team would like to share some important information with you, so that you may be prepared for the upcoming school year.

William J. Fischer Elementary School will undergo renovations to the buildings and parking area this summer; therefore we will not have any summer programs in the building for students. While the school is undergoing renovations, you can still call the main number at (504)-302-7111. Summer office hours will be Monday –Friday from 9am-3pm.

School will reopen for the 2016-2017 school year on Monday, August 8, 2016 for Kindergarten through 8th grade students, and on Monday August 15, 2016 for Pre-K 4 students.  We will hold a Parent Orientation a few weeks before the start of school.  Look for a mail out this summer, with details regarding Orientation and the start of school.

Have a Great Summer!

Have a great summer!   First Day of school - Monday, August 8, 2016 • Pardon our progress during summer renovations!
