More than 25 percent of Episcopal upperclassmen asked to self quarantine


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – After multiple off campus events, upperclassmen at Episcopal School of Baton Rouge have been asked to self quarantine and participate in online instruction while the students stay at home.

According to an email sent from Episcopal,”over one quarter of Upper School students have been asked to quarantine due to potential exposure.”

“Transitioning Upper School to distance learning is a precautionary measure to create a gap between those who have been exposed and those who have not been exposed. This is in accordance with the school’s Returning Safely to Campus protocols,” the email continues.

In person classes will resume for the upperclassmen on August 27.

Elementary and middle school students have not been affected and will continue taking in person classes.

It has only been one week since the school reopened on August 7.
