Explore EBR Schools at the Back-to-School Zoofari

The East Baton Rouge Parish School System would like to invite families, interested in enrolling their children in an EBR school, to BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo for the inaugural ‘Explore EBR Schools at the Back-to-School Zoofari.’  This pre-enrollment event will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, 2019, and will include free, same-day zoo admission for the entire family.

As Zoofari guests enter the front gates, they are invited to join us under the Capital One Pavilion to begin pre-enrolling their children. Face painting, food, and refreshments will be provided to our newly enrolled families. Those families will also be entered into our great door prize drawings and be able to interact with a few of the Zoo’s Ambassador Animals!

Parents will be able to engage with representatives of our many departments including Magnet, Gifted and Talented, Early Childhood Community Network, Transportation, Child Welfare and Attendance, Fine Arts and Athletics.

To enter the event at no-cost, families need to present a screenshot of the Zoofari graphic and bring as many of the pre-enrollment documents listed below as they can.

  • Birth Certificate
  • Parent/Guardian ID
  • Last Report Card
  • Immunization Record
  • Withdrawal Letter
  • 2 Proofs of Residence
