My name is Buffy D. Boura, and I am so excited to be the principal of Golden Meadow Upper Elementary. I am a graduate of South Lafourche High School (1991) and Nicholls State University (1995 & 2001). I earned a Bachelor's Degree in General Studies and a Master's Degree in Education. I also have Plus 30, Reading Specialist Certification, and Administration Certification from NSU. I an married to Frank Boura and together we have two daughters, Seddy Marie and Lexxy Jane. It truly is an honor for me to be here at GMUE, because this is the school where my teaching career began. So, I feel like I am back home. I hope to have an active role in your child's educational career here at GMUE.

Cyberbullying & Sexting
Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre, Superintendent of Schools, Jo Ann Matthews, and District Attorney Camille A. Morvant, II, are warning parents and children about the dangers of sending or receiving explicit photos or messages through texting and social media as part of a new public awareness campaign. The campaign is designed to educate citizens about the social and legal consequences associated with crimes like “sexting” and “cyberbullying,” and to encourage parents to pay attention to what their children are doing online. More information on cyberbully and sexting can be found on the Lafourche Parish School District Website Homepagehttp://www.lpsd.k12.la.us/ as well as on the Office of Child Welfare and Attendance Website.
