New Quarantine Guidelines for Students Identified as Close Contacts
Beginning Wednesday, October 6, students who are identified as close contacts of a COVID-19 case will not be required to quarantine. Parents and guardians of close contacts will be notified of the exposure and given the option to quarantine their child or allow them to remain in school. Students who were quarantined prior to Wednesday, October 6, may return to school on that date if they remain asymptomatic. Parents should check their child into the main office.
Governor Orders Mask Mandate
Masks are currently required in all STPPS schools and buildings due to a mask mandate order by the Louisiana governor. Students in grades K-12 and all adults are required to wear masks on school campuses and in buildings. Masks are highly recommended for children ages 2-4.
The safety of our students and employees is our top priority and we will continue to follow national, state, and local guidance. Persons wearing a mask will not be subject to quarantine if identified as a close contact if they remained more than 3-feet away from the positive individual.
