Pointe Coupee Parish school officials asking parents to decide between face-to-face or online classes

Pointe Coupee Parish wants input from parents on what school will look like in the fall

NEW ROADS, La. (WAFB) - Officials with the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board say they have narrowed down the school system’s reopening options for the 2020-2021 school year.

When school starts on Aug. 11, students will either resume normal face-to-face classes or will resume online/virtual classes via Microsoft Teams.

School board officials are asking for parents to decide on which option the school system should take for the first semester (August through December) of the 2020-2021 school year through an online survey.

Officials say the two options are contingent on Louisiana staying in Phase Two or moving to Phase Three of the White House’s reopening guidelines.

If the state moves back to Phase One, school officials say all instructions will be delivered online.

Parents are asked to complete the survey by 5 p.m. Thursday, July 2.
