Transitioning to Phase 3

During its Special Session held on September 22, 2020, the Richland Parish School Board approved the following revision to 2020-2021 School Reopening Plan.

Phase 3 guidelines dictate a capacity of 75% on a school bus and 50 individuals in a classroom. The school district will offer face-to-face instruction 4 days per week. Day 5 will be dedicated to deep cleaning, office hours, and professional development. Students will remain in pairs or pods of 3-4 within the classroom while maintaining 6 ft. social distancing to the maximum extent possible.

To accomplish this, each of our schools will be modifying practices to include continuing Phase 2 mitigation measures, amended cafeteria operations, and additional enhanced safety protocols.

This change will go into effect on October 5, 2020.
