Following the Governor’s announcement that Louisiana is now in Phase 3, the St. John the Baptist Parish Public School District will continue to follow the guidelines provided by the Louisiana Department of Health, Louisiana Department of Education and the CDC and will continue to monitor, modify, and optimize our plans to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We will continue with the plan we currently have in place and any decisions made to transition student schedules will be carefully communicated to all. As always, the health and safety of both students and employees remain a top priority. We thank each of you for your continued patience as we continue to strive for excellence in the midst of this pandemic.
Some changes under Phase 3 include:
- The maximum group size has now increased to 50 individuals and students may gather in cafeterias observing this maximum.
- Bus capacity has increased to 75 percent.
- All band/vocal/music activities may resume with appropriate physical distancing measures.
Athletic activities are allowed to resume with the recommendations put forth in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association’s Guidance for Opening Up High School Athletics and Activities.
