COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information & Updates
All schools within the Lafayette Parish School System will be closed until the end of the current school year.
Governor John Bel Edwards announced yesterday that he has officially closed K-12 public schools in Louisiana until the end of the current school year. In accordance with the proclamation, our students will not be returning to classrooms this year.
While we are disappointed that we will not return to our schools, we respect the decision and know that it was a necessary one to keep our students and staff safe, as that is always our top priority.
Louisiana is not the first state to make this difficult decision. Our team has been planning for many different scenarios as we began to see the number of coronavirus cases rise in our region. With this announcement of school closures, many details still need to be finalized before we can share information with families, such as continuing to enhance opportunities for optional learning and how to finalize this school year.
