End of Semester Information

PowerSchool Access Disabled

PowerSchool access for students and parents will be turned off at 4:30pm on Dead Day. Report cards will be mailed home on 12/21.

Final Exam Schedule

The final exam schedule has been posted to the LSMSA website. Please review and remember to make arrangements for your child's transportation that take this exam schedule into account.

Check-Out Information

Students are expected to check-out of the residence halls after completing their last final exam. Students who need to stay until the following day (i.e. because they are riding with another student who has not yet finished finals) must seek permission from their CRL.

All final exams will be completed by 3:30pm and the residence halls will close at 4:00pm on Tuesday, December 18th. All students must check out by that time. Please note: The Economics Club bus does not run for this break, as students do not all leave on the same day.


Prior to checking-out, students must complete an End-of-Semester Check-Out Form. This form requires that students get signatures from various offices indicating that they have turned in textbooks and library books, paid library fines, and have checked out any pre-scription medications they’ll need over the break. (Note: An adult must be present in order to pick-up any controlled medications as the Nurse is not allowed to return those medications directly to students.)


The residence halls will re-open at 3:00pm on Sunday, January 6th.


Please contact Ms. Emily Shumate at 318-357-2526 if you have any questions about the end-of-semester check-out procedures.
