Officially Withdraw Your Child
If your child already attends a Louisiana public school and you would like to begin educating them at home, then you must notify the school before withdrawing them. If you fail to notify the school than they may charge you for truancy.

- Make a copy for your records.
- Mail a signed copy to your child’s school by Certified Mail return receipt request.
