CENTERVILLE, La. — The St. Mary Parish School Board has released details about how its schools will transition to Phase 3 including having buses to transport students with 75% capacity and allowing classrooms to have more students with social distancing in place.

According to a release from SMPSB, schools developed virtual programming, established a hybrid schedule for grades 6-12, and adhered to strict classroom and bus capacity levels under Phase 2.

Beginning on Monday, Sept. 28, all students in grades K-5 and those in grades 6-12 will attend school on a daily basis, the release states. The use of a hybrid schedule will also be discontinued for grades 6-12 as Phase 3 parameters support a daily instructional schedule.

The school board advises parents who have chosen an all-virtual option to contact the school to discuss possible Phase 3 alternatives that would best promote their child’s continued learning.

The release states that St. Mary schools strictly follow all guidance issued by the Office of Public Health, Louisiana
Department of Education, and Centers for Disease Control regarding wellness protocols throughout its
schools and offices.

The movement to Phase 3 still requires that students participate in a wellness screening each morning, wash hands throughout the day and adhere to social distancing and face coverings.
