Our school


Dear NOLA-PS Community Members,

One year ago, New Orleans first went into lockdown and we closed schools for in-person learning as the COVID-19 pandemic surged. Since then, our lives have changed so much and there has been much lost. But we’ve also learned a great deal about the strength and resilience of the people of this city and across our school community. Despite any challenges the pandemic brought our way, together we found a way to push forward and today I feel optimistic that the future is brighter.

This week, at the one-year mark, we also reached two important milestones in our response to COVID-19. In just under three weeks, more than 3,300 public school teachers, educators, and staff have received their first round vaccinations through local health partners – and are working to vaccinate more in the upcoming weeks. And, since we started the community feeding program a year ago (on day one!), schools have served more than 1.5 million meals to our community. These milestones highlight just how much we’ve been able to accomplish together this year.

Together, we can do anything. We adjusted to distance learning and wearing a mask, learned how to stay connected while being socially distanced, and came together as a school community time and time again in support of our students. That’s why when I reflect on the past year, what I feel the most is gratitude.

Thank you students for being adaptable and persevering to continue learning and growing this year.

Thank you parents and guardians for being our partners in education and supporting your scholars through distance learning.

Thank you teachers for everything, we couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you for being there everyday for our students and adapting to new methods to ensure learning was happening both at home and in classrooms.

Thank you nurses, child nutrition staff, custodians, and school staff for the countless things that you do to make our schools safe, welcoming, and nurturing places for students.

Thank you school leaders and administrators for all of your hard work, leadership, collaboration and partnership. You made sure the right systems and plans were in place to support our students and educators.

Thank you to all of our community partners for working with us to implement successful programs throughout the year that served the many needs of our district during the pandemic.

Thank you to my team at NOLA -PS for your hard work and dedication this year, much of it behind the scenes. Because of you, our public education system was strong and effective in a time of crisis

Lastly, thank you New Orleans for masking up, staying socially distant, and supporting our students and educators so that we could reduce the spread of the virus and keeps schools open.

Together, we can do this.

In Service,

Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr.
Superintendent, NOLA Public Schools
