CAMPUS TRAFFIC PLANS
The following are campus traffic plans developed in consultation with engineers. Details about these plans were communicated to parents by each school.
SORRENTO PRIMARY UPDATE
Abatement and sterilization of Sorrento Primary took place this past Friday and Saturday after the presence of mold was detected in some parts of the campus. The school passed environmental quality inspection and is safe for students and staff to return on Monday. Please note, this campus did not take on flood waters but sat without power for several days while surrounded by water.
SPANISH LAKE PRIMARY UPDATE
Spanish Lake Primary’s sewer plant is still under flood waters. It currently operates, but not efficiently enough to support all 800+ students. Two air conditioned portable restroom trailers are on the campus for students to use until the water recedes. Rest assured, this is a safe and clean option that is large enough to fully accommodate all students.
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.
