Cypress Springs Elementary Philosophy

Cypress Springs Elementary School seeks to provide educational experiences which prepare each child to live in an ever-changing world.  The faculty of Cypress Springs believes that it is through education received at school, as well as guidance received at home, that a child grows.  Cypress Springs accepts the challenge to assist each child to achieve his fullest potential—personally, socially, morally, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.  There must be a shared effort between the home and the school in helping the child reach his or her full potential in all these areas.  The student should be guided in developing a positive self-concept and a sense of personal worth.  He or she should be encouraged to take personal responsibility for his or her learning and actions.

This is important for all students, however, it is critical for new students to the parish, and students going into Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, and 6th grades. Failure to comply with the immunization requirements as set by LA State Law will result in your child’s exclusion from school until such requirements are met. DO NOT WAIT! Past years have demonstrated that parents/ guardians who wait until just before the new school year starts have had difficulty getting appointments when needed. In addition, clinics and doctors' offices often run out of vaccine.


Will your student require medications while at school?  In general, all medications given at school are limited to those which cannot be given before or after school and must have a doctor’s order.  Please click on the "capsule" to learn more about the requirements set down by the Louisiana State Law (R.S. 17:436, Act 87) and the Lincoln Parish School Board concerning medication administration in public schools.

2014-2015 SAMPLE TEST QUESTIONS:  In order to ensure Louisiana students are prepared for college and Louisiana's economy, our state is moving to higher standards and new assessments.  The Louisiana Department of Education will highlight one sample question each day to help Louisiana educators and families preview Louisiana's new 2014-15 assessments.  These new assessments were developed with significant input from Louisiana educators who have served as key partners in identifying content for the test, developing the specific items, and guiding the technology specifications.  Click on the following link to access the sample "Question of the Day!"
