10.1.20 NOLA-PS Weekly COVID-19 Related Updates

Reopening Update

Since the city’s health data continues to improve, the District is still on track for its previously communicated plan to bring students in grade 5 through 12 back to in-person learning in mid-October. Much like how schools reopened to students in grades PreK – 4th, schools will begin bringing our older students back to campuses in a staggered manner. Schedules for reopening will vary by school starting October 12th, based upon various school-based plans and semester calendars. Per the Roadmap to Reopening, students in these grades will return to school on hybrid schedules, with a mix of in-person and distance learning which will vary campus to campus. More details on those plans and the ongoing steps NOLA-PS and schools will be taking to welcome students back to campus in a safe manner will be forthcoming next week.

While the City of New Orleans has moved its COVID-19 response to Phase 3, the District plans to remain operating schools under Phase 2 guidelines established in the Reopening Roadmap as we carry out this next stage of reopening. The District will announce any updates to operational restrictions as needed.
