The Iberia Medical Center and the IMC Foundation have teamed up to donate COVID-19 related resources to the Iberia Parish School Board.

It's part of the medical center and foundation's Safe Schools project. Resources include CDC posters, hand washing signs, and social distancing floor markers.

"We want to open our schools safely, but we want to keep them open as well," said IPSB assistant superintendent Jennifer Joseph. "The donations from the Iberia Medical Center and the Iberia Medical Foundation have been a blessing for our school system."

Earlier this month, an online COVID-19 question and answer session was held with Dr. Moses Kitakle, a pulmonologist, and IPSB RNs and administration.

Students in Iberia Parish are scheduled to head back to school on September 8 utilizing a hybrid learning model. Students in middle and high school will be on campus two days a week, while elementary school students will be in class everyday. Read more on Iberia Parish's opening plan here.
