Message from Superintendent

Dear Members of the NOLA-PS Community,

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our community has rallied together to ensure our students and educators are safe and healthy, and that learning could continue. Now, as we complete this school year and look towards the next, we know that many of you have questions and concerns about what school may look like and how students and staff will be safe.

We are taking a measured approach to this pandemic: Rapid Response, Assessment, Re-entry Planning, and Implementation. We are now in the Re-entry planning phase, which started last week with the launch of a Re-Opening Task Force. Through this group, along with our entire community, NOLA-PS is working hand in hand with school leaders, educators, parents, and health experts on developing the Roadmap to Reopening and planning for every possible scenario for how schools can reopen safely.

May 15, 2020

To the 2020 NOLA Public Schools Graduating Class,

May is my favorite month; it has always been reserved as a time to celebrate graduates and the next steps they are taking together. Caps, gowns, senior photos, prom, college acceptances, the promise of future job opportunities, and wonderful tributes would be some of those inspiring highlights.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19’s impact on our schools and city as a whole, we cannot celebrate together this year as we would traditionally. As the father of a graduating senior, I know you are undoubtedly feeling sad and are disappointed that you weren’t able to say a goodbye to your Senior Year and celebrate with your friends and families in the way that you had hoped.

As Superintendent of NOLA Public Schools, I understand and share your disappointment and am determined to make sure that all of our graduates get the celebration that they deserve as soon as it is safe to do so.
