• Test to Stay Program

    Beginning Monday, March 7, 2022, Jefferson Parish Schools will offer Test to Stay (TTS) for employees and students as a strategy to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support the continuation of in-person learning.

    We have continuously prioritized maintaining a safe teaching and learning environment, and this Test to Stay (TTS) is another mitigation tool in a layered COVID-19 prevention strategy. It adds an extra layer of safety for our school community and allows schools to maximize instructional time by decreasing disruptions to teaching and learning. This new strategy also aligns to guidance from the Louisiana Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control. 

    TTS allows unvaccinated, asymptomatic individuals who are identified as a close contact of a person with COVID-19 to continue to attend work or school. Those individuals can also participate in extracurricular activities in a modified quarantine while committing to a testing protocol. Individuals who develop symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19 will not be eligible for TTS and will be required to follow current guidelines for isolation.  Individuals who do not wish to participate in TTS will be required to follow current quarantine guidelines if not fully vaccinated and exposed to someone with COVID-19.
