Louisiana Enrollment Notification Letter

Officially Withdraw Your Child

If your child attends a Louisiana public school and you would like to begin educating them at home, operating as a private school, you must officially withdraw your child. An Enrollment Notification Letter notifies the school that you will be “transferring” your child to your new non-public school. This letter must be sent within 10 days of registering your school through the Department of Education.

NOTE: This Enrollment Notification letter is for non-public (private) schools only. If you are using a home study program then you must withdraw your child using this withdrawal letter.

Follow these simple steps to withdraw your child and begin educating them at home.

  1. Copy and paste the sample Louisiana Enrollment Notification Letter below in a new document to print.
  2. Enter your personal information in the brackets and print 2 copies (one for the school and one for your records).
  3. Mail a signed copy of your letter by certified mail to the school.
  4. Do this for each child that you will be withdrawing from public school; the school will need one for each child’s individual record.
