The Calcasieu School System has released its plan for returning to school.

The plan, which you can read for yourself below, offers parents a choice: in-person school with masks, social distancing and other safety measures, or virtual school using a school system device.

"The staff members of the Calcasieu Parish School Board have worked together to create this phase dependent reopening plan to offer support and guidance to our families as we navigate this COVID-19 Pandemic together," a statement from the system says. "As always, it is our goal to provide a safe and healthy school environment for our students and employees, especially during this time. This plan is developed based on current guidelines and recommendations and is subject to change based on additional information from these organizations and/or BESE."

The guidelines referenced in this plan are based on guidance from the Louisiana Department of Education, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and World Health Organization, the system says.
