Return to School Statement for November 30

November 27, 2020

On Tuesday, Governor John Bel Edwards announced Louisiana will move back to a modified Phase 2 in response to COVID-19; however, schools will remain open statewide and Ouachita Parish students will return to class for daily instruction Monday, November 30 following Thanksgiving break.

Governor Edwards commended school districts for the mitigation measures being taken across the state and gave the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education authorization to allow schools to keep their doors open and continue following current requirements. This is the same as how our schools operated prior to our release for the holiday.

Ouachita Parish School System remains diligent in adhering to all guidelines to protect the health and safety of our employees and students.  We look forward to supporting students in person and online to be successful in completing the 2020-2021 school year.
