Phase 3 Announcement

With the Governor’s announcement that we are moving into Phase 3 of the state’s reopening plan,
Lafourche Parish School District will begin transitioning students into a traditional school setting with all
in-person students attending school every day beginning on Monday, September 28th. For the next two
weeks, we will continue to implement our A/B schedule with in-person students attending on “A” days
or “B” days to allow our staff to prepare our facilities and classrooms. Students who have chosen virtual
learning will maintain their status, learning virtually through the Google classroom platform, and a
virtual option will continue to be available for parents and students in Phase 3.

In the next phase of reopening, we will continue to follow the Louisiana Department of Health, Louisiana
Department of Education, and CDC guidelines, which require students to maintain social distancing and
wear masks. Temperatures will continue to be taken each morning, and throughout the day, students
and staff will practice frequent hand washing. Because we will be in Phase 3, buses will be able to
transport students at 75% capacity, will continue to operate with windows down, and will be cleaned
and disinfected after each route. As we are committed to the safety of our students and staff, we ask
parents to monitor their children for signs of illness and keep them home, as needed.

Parents who wish to move their children from virtual learning to in-person learning or from in-person
learning to virtual learning will be able to make that adjustment at the close of the nine weeks,
beginning on October 5th through 19th. If you wish to change your child’s status to in-person or virtual
learning, please contact your child’s school. 

We appreciate your continued patience as we move into the next phase of school reopening. As always,
our first priority is to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff. We know that the past few
months have been challenging for our community and look forward to welcoming all in-person students
back to school beginning on September 28th. Please continue to monitor our website and Facebook
page for the latest updates and announcements.
