The Center for Disease Control has issued a very critical update regarding the use of face coverings for protection from the spread of COVID-19. The change directly impacts the school system’s face covering protocol as announced several weeks ago.
Specifically, the use of “neck gaiters” is not recommended and will no longer be part of acceptable face coverings for schools. The CDC also recommends that face coverings with vents be excluded from use as the protection level is very low.
The school system will continue to update parents and staff regarding any further releases from the CDC or Office of Public Health as the information becomes available.
The approach of a historic set of two tropical storms threatening the Louisiana coast has led to a decision to close all School Board offices and schools on Monday, August 24, through Thursday, August 27.
All teacher trainings and meetings will be rescheduled; information regarding these events will be provided in the coming days.
The safety of our students and employees remains our main priority. We ask that everyone stay connected to weather updates and take all precautions as advised.

There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer.
You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.
For Affordable Care Act:
Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners. Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information.
After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
