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.

City Health Director Dr. Jennifer Avegno said that current data on the virus is trending in the wrong direction and is not where it needs to be to safely send students back to school.

According to Dr. Avegno, there must be 50 cases or less per day in Orleans Parish before returning kids to the classroom.

Despite the delayed start, officials say it's unclear if the school year will be extended beyond May to make up for lost time.
