The Jefferson Parish Public School system has released its plans for the 2020-2021 school year.
"We are prioritizing safe, in-person learning," the largest public school system in Louisiana announced. "Our prekindergarten through fifth grade students will return to school using a traditional model. Our sixth through twelfth grade students will return to school using a hybrid model."
The system is also offering families the choice of full-time distance learning using virtual at-home teaching and learning using Virtual Jefferson, an at-home virtual learning option that will support K-12th grade students throughout the 2020-2021 school year.
Students who attend classes in person must wear masks.
