Important Back to School COVID-19 Information

We are looking forward to a GREAT 2021-22 school year!  The State of Louisiana has a mask mandate in effect until September 1.  Students ages 5 and up and all adults will be required to wear a face mask indoors.  Masks are NOT required outdoors. By Presidential Order, masks are required to be worn by everyone on a school bus.  

Please monitor your student each day for symptoms.

  • Symptoms include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Fever greater than 100.4 F
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Increasingly nonproductive (dry) cough
  • Body aches or fatigue
  • GI symptoms (nausea or diarrhea)
  • Loss of taste and/or smell
  • Other flu or cold-like symptoms such as a headache, sore throat, or congestion

The Department of Health guidance indicates that symptomatic individuals need to have a negative PCR COVID test OR an alternative diagnosis OR complete quarantine.

We are continuing to work closely with the Louisiana Department of Education and the Louisiana Department of Health to follow the guidelines and keep our students and staff safe.
