Tangipahoa schools begin Phase 3 Mon., Sept. 14
With Friday’s announcement that Louisiana will be moving into Phase 3, School Superintendent Melissa Stilley said Tangipahoa Parish public schools will enter into their Phase 3 plan starting on Monday, September 14.
Under the district’s Phase 3 operational plan, students in 7th and 8th grade will be able to join PreK-6th grade students attending school on campus five days a week.
High School students will also begin transitioning back to campus on a staggered entrance, beginning Monday, September 14. Students with the last name beginning with the letters A-K (Group A) will attend classes on campus Monday and Tuesday of each week. High School students with the last name beginning with the letters L-Z (Group B) will attend classes on campus Thursday and Friday. More specific information on the high school A/B hybrid schedule will be shared by each high school with students next week, Stilley said.
School officials remind everyone to continue to take precautions to stay safe on campus. Students should continue to wear masks each day, wash their hands regularly, and maintain a comfortable distance when gathered in groups.
Please read our official TPSS School Plan
for more details on our transition into Phase 3.
The TPSS continues to offer families the full virtual option, as well. Students in 7th and 8th grade who will remain fully virtual for the remainder of the first semester should continue to check their email, and log into Oncourse Classroom, or Google Classroom, to engage in lessons and assignments from their virtual teachers. If you would like your junior high or high school student to engage in school fully online, you must complete our Full Virtual Intent Form
. The deadline to complete the form is Friday, September 11, 2020.
Bus transportation will be offered to students attending on-campus classes in Phase 3.
“We are very pleased to reach this point, and we are looking forward to the time when all of our students can return to campus 100 percent of the time, if they choose to do so,” Stilley said.
