Two More EBRPSS Schools Transition to Virtual Learning Amid Surge in COVID Cases 

This morning, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System was notified of several positive COVID-19 cases at Southdowns PreK and McKinley Middle school. Out of an abundance of caution, the district has made the difficult decision to transition the schools to remote learning effective Jan. 12. The students will return to in-person learning on Jan. 18.

Magnolia Woods Elementary School’s students and staff returned to campus today after moving to virtual learning on Jan. 6.

During this period of remote learning, the impacted classrooms will be closed for deep cleaning and students will receive instruction through Google Classroom. The district will continue to consult with Health Centers in Schools, the Louisiana Department of Health and other local officials for additional guidance.

“Our thoughts are with the families impacted by the virus. We have the staff’s and students’ health and safety on our minds during these times. We are not taking these decisions lightly as we prioritize the health of everyone in the parish. Please, we ask everyone to do their part in reducing the spread of COVID-19,” stated School Superintendent Sito Narcisse, Ed. D.  

The school system will continue to utilize proven mitigation efforts, including mask-wearing; deep cleaning and sanitizing of rooms; frequent handwashing; employee and staff testing; improved air-filtration systems; and other proven mitigation efforts.  

We will release virtual learning transitions information daily as applicable to the parish.
