EBRPSS to Make Masking Optional 

The East Baton Rouge Parish School System continues to monitor COVID-19 transmission rates, and after review and consultation with EBRPSS’s Health Advisory Council, it has been determined that wearing mask face coverings will be optional for staff and students in grades pre-K through 12 in all EBR facilities and schools beginning Monday, Feb. 14.

This decision reflects the district’s 10-day, COVID-19 positivity rate, which is currently below .5%. The district will continue to follow the Louisiana Department of Health’s guidance for self-isolation and self-quarantine. For those opting to not wear masks, this will affect quarantine protocols. For example, if an individual has to self-isolate or quarantine, they can return to school or work (if symptoms are improving and no fever is present) after five days but will be required to wear a mask until the 10th day.  

Please be advised that wearing masks on school buses will still be required as mandated by the federal government. 

For more information, please contact Letrece R. Griffin, director of communications and public relations, at (225) 436-1140 or lgriffin7@ebrschools.org.
