St. Helena Parish School Board'S Response to COVID-19
This page is dedicated to providing families of students who attend St. Helena Parish School District information regarding COVID-19. We will keep this page updated so you can stay abreast of the latest events surrounding this pandemic. In addition, the 2020 Education Community eResource Guide contains information for parents, students, and teachers.
Initially, the Governor has issued an order closing all K-12 schools in the state until April 12, 2020. This precautionary measure is being taken to curb the spread of the Coronavirus. We have been working diligently to prepare for this event. Now, the Stay at Home Order has been lifted. We will still operate with an abundance of caution as we transition to the summer months and next school year.
Parents, you now have access to our WIFI to give you a broader range of service, and for your student to complete their assignments. These assignments will be checked and graded.

2020-2021 Re-opening Plans for Schools
Please review our plan HERE.
Planning for the 2020-2021 school year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging. Weekly planning meetings have been held since April, parent and teacher surveys were completed, data from the Jumpstart 2020 program was collected, and a simulation of a school day was conducted. All of the collected information was used to decide what path the school district will take for its school re-opening.
Simulation of a School Day
Approximately 30 individuals participated in a simulation that reflects the operational changes of a school day due to COVID-19 health and safety precautions. Participants gained a lot of valuable insight during the exercise. A debriefing meeting was held to review the experience. Some concerns that were shared included teacher apprehension about handling school supplies brought from home, reducing the number of high-contact points, and the appropriate measures to handle non-related COVID-19 illnesses.
