NOLA-PS is looking forward to welcoming students, as schools reopen following Hurricane Ida. In order to help ensure the health and safety of our school community, as well as preserve in-person learning, NOLA-PS will require students wear masks and follow the school system's COVID-19 guidelines. In addition, the District is encouraging families to have their students tested for COVID-19 regardless of vaccination status, before schools reopen and get vaccinated, if eligible. All these measures will help protect the health and safety of our students, teachers, and staff.
