CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

 

We appreciate your support as we have continued to take precautions against the coronavirus and have worked hard to maintain a safe environment for our students and faculty. As you know, the governor has required all schools to close beginning March 16 until April 13.

 

What this means for students:

  • Support will be provided.
    • Continued practice will be available to students online or through paper packets. Monday, you will receive more information about accessing the assignments.
    • The purpose of the assignments provided during the closure is to avoid a loss of instruction, continue skill practice, and allow students to continue to prepare for standardized assessments such as LEAP, AP exams, and certification tests. This work will not be graded.
    • Lunch distribution is being discussed and details will be provided Monday.
    • All school events from March 13 to April 13 will be canceled. This includes ACT prep, Saturday detention, field trips, competitions, choir concerts, family nights, attendance recovery, etc.
    • We will continue to follow LHSAA's guidance regarding athletic events.
    • If students were absent today, they can pick up their belongings from the schools Monday between 9:00-3:00.
    • Parents can also pick up medication Monday between 9:00-3:00.

Guidance from CDC and Louisiana Department of Health

  • Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or more.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Cover cough and sneeze with tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  • Stay home if you are sick.

Communication:

  • Updates will be sent via email and phone calls and posted on social media.

We know this closure will create hardships for our families, and we hope that we can come together as a community to get through this. Our first priority is the safety and health of our children and families. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this challenging time.
