Governor Edwards announced that the state will move into Phase 3 of its reopening plan beginning on Friday, September 11, 2020. The Lafayette Parish School System will remain in Phase 2 of our 2020-2021 Learn Lafayette Reopening Plan. Superintendent Trosclair, in collaboration with board members and district staff, made this decision with the best interest of our students, staff, and community in mind. “Schools made great strides this week in establishing safety protocols and adhering to recommended guidelines. As we work to transition to Phase 3, our next objective is to take a measured approach in our mission to provide healthy learning environments to our students and staff ,” stated Superintendent Trosclair. As we receive updates from state leaders, we want to carefully and mindfully review all new information before we adjust any aspects of our plan. To better prepare our students and staff, it’s important that
transitions to Phase 3 are strategic and mindful. Minor changes to transportation will be made available early next week. LPSS will reassess over the course of the next three weeks and will provide an update on October 2. As always, LPSS will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions that we believe to be in the best interest of the entire Lafayette Parish School System community. Please note all mitigation efforts will remain in effect at our schools and on buses, which include wearing face masks, practicing social distancing, heightened hand hygiene, increased cleaning and disinfection, and an emphasis on keeping children home when they are sick. This decision does not impact students who are enrolled in Lafayette Online Academy.
