Our school

The NOLA Public Schools Roadmap to Reopening Schools is a set of operational expectations guiding the citywide reopening of schools in response to the challenges COVID-19 continues to present to our school community. This plan provides a phased approach with clear standards for schools to adhere to as they reopen to serve students and staff. This approach is built upon many weeks of engagement and discussion with health experts, educators, and essential stakeholders and the recommendations of health agencies. As we continue to learn more about this pandemic and the best practices needed to mitigate risks associated with COVID-19, NOLA-PS will provide ongoing updates to this plan.

This plan identifies specific actions—rooted in data and best practices identified by health experts—that school staff, students, and families will need to undertake daily in order to safely resume in-person instruction and critical services supporting social and emotional health. This coming school year will be unlike any other and it is essential that district staff, school leaders, teachers, students, families, and the community commit to working together to build a culture of safety and care for one another as school buildings open.

Learning Resources for Parents

Given the challenges COVID-19 has presented to our community, many students are choosing to learn from home or may be on a hybrid schedule with a mix of in-person and distance learning. NOLA-PS has compiled a set of resources that can help families as distance learning is required and gather more information on COVID-19 as well.
