Yesterday, Governor John Bel Edwards issued an Executive Order extending the Stay at Home Order and school closures through April 30, 2020. This means that our buildings will remain closed, but we will still provide services to students.
Dear Ascension Public Schools Families, We are aware Governor Edwards plans to sign an Executive Order extending the Stay at Home Order and school closures until April 30th. We stay committed to serving children in a distance environment, and we are still honoring our Easter/Spring Break planned for April 6th-13th. More information will be shared in a message to parents Friday afternoon.
We hope you all had a great day. We trust that your children had meaningful opportunities to learn and grow academically today.
We hope you all had a great weekend and your families are experiencing good health. We continue to pray with all of you that those impacted by this virus recover quickly and that our healthcare workers remain strong and courageous to comfort those in need.
We remain committed to our service to students. It is both our obligation and our privilege to serve students in the Ascension Parish community.
Thank you for making the week go so well. We look forward to one last day of work together before we all enjoy a weekend.
We continue to be proud of the efforts of our employees to support students in a variety of ways. Additionally, we are both grateful and proud of our students and their families who are investing each day to adapt to a new way of learning. I encourage everyone to be patient, continue to send us your feedback, and let us keep working to make this better and better each day. The circumstances we are all experiencing is like never before, but when we overcome them, we want to minimize the long-term impact that could occur if we were to abandon our commitment to education.
Today marks Day 5 of online instruction. We are still navigating this new academic delivery with you, but we are so proud of the teamwork we have seen by our students, teachers, and our parents -- because we know this could not happen without your partnership!
We are all navigating together how to provide services and maintain relationships under the Stay at Home Order to keep our community safe and healthy.
