EBR Schools superintendent looking ahead of the new school year with safety a top priority


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Students in EBR will return back to school August 11th and Superintendent Dr. Sito Narcisse and I CARE director Erin Bradford discussed COVID-19 guidance and resources available for students.

The guidance was created based upon the recommendations of the health advisory committee, comprising of the state’s leading health experts in epidemiology, infectious disease and public health.

All students in kindergarten to 12th grade will be required to wear a mask in the school setting, and all children and staff will be required to wear masks when traveling on school buses. EBRPPS will begin to offer free, periodic covid-19 testing to staff and students, with parental consent.

High touch surfaces will undergo cleaning with a commercially available cleaning solution, including EPA approved disinfectants, at least twice per day (including bathrooms). Desks will be cleaned between each class.

Schools will post signs in highly visible locations (such as school entrances, restrooms) that promote everyday protective measures and describe how to limit the spread of germs.

I CARE provides many services including individual family and student consultation, small group student support, classroom education, staff and parent trainings, prevention campaign support, and variety of other support services related to social-emotional learning.
