Some NOLA Public Schools Students Will Resume In-Person Learning Sept. 14

NEW ORLEANS – NOLA Public Schools Superintendent Henderson Lewis Jr. announced that in-person classes for some students in the district will start as soon as Sept. 14 if positive coronavirus trends continue.

Since the school year began, Orleans Parish public schools have been teaching students remotely.

Lewis said pre-K through 4th grade students will be the first to return. If the state’s virus data supports it, older students will be able to return by mid-October, he said. Individual charter schools will inform families about return dates.
