Dear NOLA-PS Community Members,

The new school year is just around the corner. As a parent and educator, I know the juggling act it takes in a normal summer to get a child ready for class: purchasing uniforms, filling out paperwork, lining up bus schedules or carpools, multiple trips to stores for school supplies.

But this is not a normal summer. On top of this seasonal back-to-school ritual, we must continue to keep our children safe from the COVID-19 pandemic, now and throughout the 2021-2022 school year.
What is different from last summer is our shared experience. We have been here before. We know how to do this. We did it, together, and we will do it again.
