STPPS Schools Closed for Remainder of 2019-20 School Year
(04-15-2020)
All St. Tammany Parish Public Schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This closure is the result of an executive order by Governor Edwards to close all schools statewide to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.

All schools and support facilities will remain closed until further notice, and employees should continue to follow the direction of their supervisor. At this time, all athletics, activities, clubs, and events, including high school graduations as scheduled, have been canceled for the duration of the school year. We know that graduations are an important milestone and we are working on alternative plans to hold graduations in a safe manner.

This is very disappointing for all of us, especially our seniors, but we know it is necessary to protect the health and safety of our students and employees. We know it creates many questions and challenges, and we will continue to find solutions and provide support in the best interest of our students, families, employees, and community. We were looking forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our seniors, and we will find a way to honor them and provide a memorable experience for this important milestone.

We are awaiting information and guidance from the Louisiana Department of Education, the agency responsible for implementing policies for students statewide, so that we can determine the best solutions for our 39,000 students and 6,000 employees. We will provide additional information about graduations, student grades, promotion to the next grade level, and other impacts of this closure as soon as possible.

Our teachers and employees will continue to provide support for families including new and expanded remote learning resources to continue education for the remainder of the school year, school information hotlines, STPPS Cares helpline for mental health support, and Grab-and-Go meal distribution.

We will continue to provide updates with information and resources via robocalls, the district website, and district social media channels.
