Our ambitious target of moving into temporary buildings on Feb. 3, 2017, is officially delayed. As stated in our video message earlier this month, we experienced weather delays over the holidays that impacted the installation of temporary structures. We have been able to recover some of that lost time, but unfortunately, we are still behind schedule.
Due to the complexity of activities taking place at each campus, we created a Flood Recovery Campus Status Report page on our website so that you can track the specific progress of each school. We will continue to update this webpage as work progresses. Additionally, in response to several inquiries, we created a Frequently Asked Questions page so that you can stay fully informed.
We are closing out an unprecedented first semester, and despite obstacles from the Flood of 2016, we are very proud of the progress students have made. We are grateful to all #AscensionStrong staff, School Board Members, and our community for continuing to make education a priority in the lives of children.
Included in this update is information about plans for temporary buildings to relieve the host campus situation and platoon scheduling that currently exist for the five displaced schools. The target date for moving into temporary buildings is Feb. 3, 2016.
The Ascension Public Schools Temporary Education Plan for Impacted Schools is available online. This plan details how students at the schools currently under remediation for flood waters will be able continue their education at alternate locations.
We are committed to maintaining a safe and enjoyable environment in which your children can learn. Our goal is to promote unity and respect for one another, and, sometimes, laughter is truly the best medicine.
It has been a long and eventful year for our 22,000 students and nearly 3,000 employees. The commitment to our students' academic excellence remains stronger than ever, and on this last day of school for students, let us celebrate the many successes of Ascension Public Schools.
