BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - It’s the first day of in-class instruction for some students in Livingston Parish.

According to plans outlined by the school system, “Pre-K-2nd grade students, along with students with significant disabilities participating in alternate assessment, and students attending the ELEC Center will report to class for face-to-face instruction, 5 days per week.”

Students entering 3rd-12th grade will participate in a hybrid model. Those students will be given a schedule with a mix of face-to-face instruction and distance learning. Classes will be held either Monday/Wednesday, and every other Friday or Tuesday/Thursday, and every other Friday.

Superintendent Joe Murphy says as of Tuesday, Aug. 4, the school district has 25,879 students enrolled to attend in the fall, with only 1,870 students (7.2%) enrolled in an all-virtual option due to COVID-19 concerns.

Anyone that enters a school building is required to wear a face covering.
