(FOX 8/WVUE) All New Orleans Public School students will begin the new school year under a virtual learning setting.
At a news conference Tuesday, Superintendent Dr. Henderson Lewis made the announcement that in-person learning will not happen until after Labor Day at the earliest.
“We have made the difficult decision to begin school under the distance learning model in August,” Superintendent Dr. Henderson Lewis said. “Every time you leave the house, please think of the 45,000 students throughout Orleans Parish. For them, for their futures and for the future of this city I’m asking you to mask up, stay socially distant, and stay home if you feel sick.”
