Message from the Superintendent

Dear School Community,

The importance of routine is critical for a child’s development; from the morning bell, to greeting teachers each period, to catching the bus home, maintaining a rhythm helps students stay well and grow. We know life has been anything but normal lately, but thanks to the efforts of New Orleans Public School teachers, our students have been able to maintain some semblance of their routine.

Since the outbreak forced our physical schools to close, every morning our teachers have been working hard in this new reality to keep classrooms open for 45,000 students throughout Orleans Parish. While the morning bell at school may seem like a distant memory, it has been replaced with the sounds of students logging into their virtual classrooms. Though the classroom may look a bit different, the coursework remains the same thanks to the dedication of our teachers and schools. I want to extend my immense gratitude to all of the educators in the parish for their unwavering commitment during this challenging time.Now more than ever, we must recognize the efforts of our teachers. That’s why, this year, we want to do something a little special…

On May 5 at 9 a.m., NOLA-PS is asking our community to join us for the morning bell in honor of Teacher Appreciation Day. At 9 a.m. we are inviting every member of the NOLA community to ring a bell, bang a pan and make some noise to salute our teachers.

We will all do this together from a safe distance in the comfort of our own homes.

We are also excited to announce that we have partnered with COX Cable to produce a public service announcement (PSA) recognizing our hardworking teachers. The PSA will air on television throughout the City of New Orleans.

If you are able to participate, please try and record your ‘bell ringing’ and share it on social media with the hashtag #NOLAMorningBell so your teachers can see how much you love and appreciate their hard work.

During these challenging times, I cannot help but be in awe of the unprecedented commitment of our educators and the students that they are helping to grow and support. I am incredibly grateful for and proud of our teachers and schools that have helped put the well-being and growth of our children first during this crisis.

I look forward to making some noise in honor of our teachers next week, and I hope all New Orleanians will join me.

In Service,
Dr. Henderson Lewis Jr..
