The East Baton Rouge Parish School System reported 760 school-based absences Wednesday, Jan. 12. These absences were marked in Frontline and reflect a combination of COVID and non-COVID-related absences. After conducting a seven-day average analysis, EBRPSS averages 762.4 absences per day which can be attributed to the current COVID and seasonal flu surge.
We continue to take the health and safety of our school community very seriously and work diligently to follow health and safety guidelines.
“We are committed to providing a high-quality education for our students while continuing to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. We have taken proactive measures throughout the course of the pandemic to mitigate the spread through continued masking; weekly mandatory staff testing; deep cleaning and sanitation; vaccine and booster clinics. We have continued to keep the lines of communication open to all of our organization educator unions and associations and have been able to hear and address the concerns of those willing to speak with myself and executive staff,” stated Superintendent Sito Narcisse Ed. D.
