Info concerning Lincoln Parish School Closure related to Coronavirus
FROM: Mike Milstead, Superintendent, Lincoln Parish Schools
TO: LPSB Parents
1. As you now know, Governor Jon Bel Edwards in a Proclamation issued today, Friday, March 13, 2020, has declared all Louisiana public schools closed Monday, March 16, through Friday, April 10, 2020.
2. Lincoln Parish Schools will reopen for students Monday, April 13, 2020. Originally, that was to be a holiday, but we will resume on Monday instead of Tuesday.
3. The Governor has waived the requirement of minutes of instruction associated with this closure. This closure will not be held against any instructional days normally required.
4. All school events during this time are cancelled. The goal is separation from social interaction during this month to the extent possible.
5. We do not yet know how this affects our normal spring testing and how that will play out. As soon as we get appropriate information, we will let you know.
6. Let’s take advantage of this time to defend ourselves and families from the Coronavirus and practice good hygiene associated with cleanliness, proper handwashing, staying at home when sick, and limiting travel.
7. I will continue to communicate with you through this means over the next few weeks.
