The Louisiana Department of Health has a shortage of COVID tests. As a result, we cannot conduct mass testing through Southeast Community Health Systems this Thursday and Friday. Fortunately, we still have access to COVID tests through Omega Diagnostics, our weekly COVID test service provider. As such, the following changes will occur:

We will revert to our eLearning platform, Microsoft Teams, from Thursday, January 6th through Monday, January 10th. This will give parents time to register for testing through Omega Diagnostics, or to acquire their own COVID test through their private medical doctor.

Parents who opt to use Omega Diagnostics will have until Monday, January 10th at 5:00pm to register their child for the COVID test.

Learners will return face-to-face on Tuesday, January 11th. Your child must provide a negative test result upon their return or be registered to take the COVID test through Omega Diagnostics. All learners MUST properly wear their face coverings while on the bus and during the school day.

Parents who do not wish to have their child tested on Tuesday, January 11th or cannot show proof of a recent negative test result (no earlier than January 4th), must wait until Friday, January 14th to return to school.

Non-vaccinated learners must quarantine for 10 days any time an active COVID case is reported at their school or on their bus.

Please CLICK HERE to register for the Omega Diagnostics COVID test. Please make sure you click on the correct link for your child’s school site. YOU MUST REGISTER in order for your child to get tested.

Teachers will send invites to their learners so they can access their classes. Learners can CLICK HERE to get a refresher on how to use the Teams eLearning platform. Please call the school if you need assistance with accessing your login information.
