School Reopening

  • Jefferson Parish Schools is utilizing a tiered reopening due to the varying nature of damage at schools in the district. The first day for students at tier 1 schools is planned for September 20, tier 2 schools September 24, and tier 3 schools October 1. The plan is listed as tentative because it relies on the timeline of contractors for releasing school buildings back to the district. Contractors will release schools to the district as they meet safety, environmental, and operational standards. 

    Please Note: Grand Isle School, Leo Kerner Elementary, and Fisher Middle-High will not be part of the general reopening tiers due to the significant impact of the storm in Grand Isle and Lafitte. We will directly communicate reopening plans with those employees and families prior to any public announcement. JP Schools charter schools will also not be a part of the reopening tiers. Those schools will directly communicate individual reopening plans with their employees and families.
