Welcome to LPSS

We welcome you and your child to the Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS). If you have any questions about enrolling, click here for answers to the most frequently asked questions. You can also call the Child Welfare and Attendance office of LPSS at 337-521-7090.

School staff will only be available by phone and appointment only until June 5, 2020, then schools will be closed for the summer. Staff will resume services on July 31, 2020.

Registration will occur at the student's zoned school.  Be sure to contact the school directly to determine their summer hours and for Summer 2020, read the new process that includes direct email contacts for each school during the time that campuses are closed to the public.

Due to COVID-19, beginning in May 2020, LPSS has enacted new processes and procedures for the withdrawal, transfer, or enrollment of a student. The goal is to modify the existing process to limit exposure & practice social distancing.
