In the Public Schools of New Orleans, it was recently announced that they will go back to “distance learning” this week because of rising COVID-19 cases in the City.
The City’s School System said Monday that all pre-K through Grade 12 classes will go online by no later than January 6, 2021.
The school year began with the Public School System in New Orleans doing remote learning then returned to in-class learning that began back in September.
Superintendent Henderson Lewis said in a statement that a spike in positive cases in the City prompted the “unfortunate but necessary” decision to go back to distance learning.
The move comes a week after the City tightened virus-related restrictions on public gatherings and again ended indoor service at bars.
