1.5.21 School Closure Update

Dear Lycée Community,

NOLA Public Schools (NOLA-PS) has just announced that all schools will return to distance learning until at least Thursday, January 21st due to the troubling spike in COVID-19 cases in New Orleans. Lycée Français is following this guidance in order to protect the health and safety of our students, families, staff, and teachers. 

Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, January 5th, Lycée will not hold in-person instruction. Tomorrow instruction will be asynchronous, posted in Google Classroom in the afternoon as teachers prepare to move back to the virtual model. Please look for an email for next steps from your child’s teacher. 

This has been a very difficult decision to make and we understand that it may pose a burden to families. However, concerns regarding the health and safety of our community is and remains a priority.

Community meal services will continue to be offered. Communications from John Henry Trant is forthcoming. Also, Etre à la Page will be issued tomorrow. 

Please stay safe, 

The Leadership Team
