St. Bernard set to register pupils
System determined to resume classes
By Sandra Barbier St. Bernard/Plaquemines bureau
As it prepares to apply for federal funds to keep the sys- tem afloat for the remainder of the school year, the St. Bernard Parish School Board announced it will move forward with plans to resume classes in mid-No- vember.
The district will begin regis- tering students Wednesday as the School Board meets to dis- cuss a proposal to apply for a federal loan and to consider bids for repairs to the board office building.
Board members voted earlier this month to get permission from the State Bond Commis- sion to apply for the loan, Voitier said. The commission granted the request. Plans are to secure the loan with the school dis- trict’s future tax revenue, she said.
The loan will be used to pay salaries, buy materials and sup- plies, pay for utilities and other bills, “anything it takes to oper- ate a school system,” she said.
Sandra Barbier can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (504) 826-3300.
Classes will start Nov. 14, pending clearance from state and federal environmental agen- cies. Superintendent Doris Voi- tier said initial clearance has been granted but that she has requested a repeat check to en- sure that the site of what will be system’s first post-storm school is safe.
The school will be housed in trailers on the grounds of Chal- mette High School. It will be open to students from pre-kin- dergarten to 12th grade.
Registration will be Wednes- day through Saturda , from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily at the School Board office building at 200 E. St. Bernard Highway.
Parents of students who were previously enrolled in St. Ber- nard public schools before Hur- ricane Katrina do not have to bring documents. Parents en- rolling new students must bring proof of residency in St. Ber- nard, such as a driver’s license. Parents who now live in a St. Bernard “trailer community” should bring a letter from an employer indicating they are liv- ing at the site as proof of resi- dency for their children.
The school district will pro- vide transportation and lunch once school opens, Voitier said. Pickup points for buses will be selected once students have reg- istered, she said.

Voitier said the district will provide a free, supervised after- school program with recreation and games.
Students will be asked to wear a school uniform, but they will be admitted without them, Voitier said. The basic St. Ber- nard Parish school uniform con- sists of khaki pants and navy blue or white-collared shirt. School officials are seeking do- nations of uniforms.
The School Board will meet Wednesday at 2 p.m. at its office building in Chalmette. Board members will consider a resolu- tion seeking a loan for up to $17 million under the federal Com- munity Disaster Loan Act of 2005.

“I have never seen anything like this,” said Sgt. Kevin Cro , supervisor of the department’s tactical robbery unit.
Dutch Krikorian has been jailed since Aug. 17, when he was booked with four counts of armed robbery — three in Shreveport and the fourth in Caddo Parish. His wife, Crista Krikorian, 31, was booked Fri- day on one count of armed rob- bery and 18-year-old Brian Kish with two counts.
Additional charges could be filed against Kish, but no other charges are expected against Crista Krikorian or her hus- band, Crow said.
According to Cro , Kish told detectives that he was serving time in Caddo Correctional Cen- ter when he met Dutch Kriko- rian, who told him about the businesses he and his wife had scouted, and urged him to see his wife as soon as he got out of jail.
