Is your family moving to the Belle Chasse community? And you have a child or children in grades fifth through eighth grade? Welcome!
For driving directions to the school, you may consult our school board's website or phone the school at 504-595-6640. If you are moving during the school year, we encourage you to come to the school to register your child as soon as possible. We realize that adjustment to a new school during the school year is difficult, but the less your child's school year is disrupted by absence, the better. Ideally, your child should begin attending Belle Chasse Middle School the next school day after he or she withdraws from the previous school.
Birth Certificate: Students must bring their birth certificate in order to register. The school will make a copy for the student's file.
Immunization: All students in grades K-12 must provide an immunization certificate at the time of enrollment.
Social Security Number: All students entering this school system are asked to provide to the school the student's Social Security number. This number will be used as the child’s student number throughout his or her years in school. Bring the original social security card and the school will make a copy.
Transfer Records: Students transferring into Belle Chasse Middle School must provide a withdrawal form from the previous school and official notice from that school to verify grade placement at the time of withdrawal. The name and address of the previous school also need to be provided.
Custody: If any person other than a natural parent has custody of a child, proof of legal custody (signed by a judge) or guardianship must be provided before the child may be enrolled in a school.
Proof of Residence: Three proofs of residence at a valid Belle Chasse address must be furnished at the time of registration. Examples of proof of residence are:Utility Bills--electricity, gas, water, cable, and/or home phone; Lease; Mortgage; Homestead Exemption
When to Register
Registration is available online starting April 20th-May 29th.
If your child attended a Louisiana private school or a school in another state or country, you will need to provide a withdrawal form or report card, proof of residence and all of the other required documents.
If you're moving to the area during the summer, we strongly encourage you to come by the school at your earliest convenience to register your children. We're open every day (Monday through Thursday) from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. during the summer as we work to prepare for the new school year. We would love an opportunity to meet you and your children and to get them registered at Belle Chasse Middle School.
Getting your children registered early will allow us to obtain their records from the previous school, giving us important information needed to make an effective class placement for your children.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Belle Chasse community. We believe you'll find our school staff, students, and parents friendly and eager to help you and your child feel at home here.
