With the exception of some scattered drainage issues, Plaquemines appears to have passed its first test of the 2017 storm season.

Sheriff Gerald A. Turlich Jr. is proud to announce the graduation of Recruit Class “Charlie” of the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office (PPSO) Young Marines Program. Commencing on March 11, 2017, 18 recruits started their 13-week journey focusing on the core values of “Teamwork, Discipline, Leadership and Community Service.”

Coastal wetlands in Plaquemines Parish are already under attack from rising sea levels, subsidence and foreign bugs that appear to be killing the plants whose roots tether what remains of the precariously unstable land. Now the list of threats has expanded to include rodents.



At the end of each semester students who have maintained a scholastic average of 4.0 or above will receive recognition by being placed on Cabrini’s Principal’s Honor Roll.
