School districts across Acadiana are working to prepare staff for the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic.

Thursday, the Lafayette Parish School System trained its employees on how to use scanning thermometers.

Those thermometers are just some of several new tools teachers and other employees are learning to use ahead of the school year.

School health officials believe the training is important before students walk through the doors next month.

"We're doing lots of training to prepare our administration on the necessary procedures and protocols, instilling that everyone is well and safe for school," said Julie Bullur, Supervisor of Nursing Health Services for LPSS.
