Keeping Students & Employees Safe

  • The safety of our students and employees is our top responsibility. In light of the Governor’s Roadmap to Restarting Louisiana, the Louisiana Department of Education issued Ready to Achieve! 2021-22 School Operational Guidelines pertaining to opening public and nonpublic school facilities to serve students in the 2021-22 school year. Should the public health situation worsen, restrictions may gradually tighten, allowing for less flexibility and fewer opportunities for in-person teaching and learning.

    The Start Strong Jefferson plan follows guidelines based on Louisiana’s Ready to Achieve!. In addition to meeting the guidelines recommended by the state, we may take extra precautions to increase the safety of our students, employees, and families. Please note this plan may evolve throughout the school year in response to the latest medical recommendations. We will continue to work side-by-side with local, state, and federal medical experts to ensure our plan meets the changing nature of the pandemic.
