Mask Mandate Lifted - Parent’s Choice

Please see the copy of the email from Dr. Coker sent on Tuesday, October 26, 2021…

Hi Everyone,

I am sure you have heard by now that the Governor lifted the Mask Mandate effective Wednesday, October 27, 2021, for the next 28 days. Considering the authority bestowed the Superintendent by the board, the board's vote to lift the face covering mandate when allowed by the Governor and Governor Edward's proclamation 203 JBE 2021 issued on Tuesday, October 26, 2021, effective Wednesday, October 27, 2021, the Ouachita Parish School Board shall adhere to the following protocols:


  1. The use of cloth face coverings by students and employees are highly recommended, but the decision as to the face covering use is left to the discretion of the parent and employee;
  2. Per the Presidential proclamation, cloth face coverings shall continue to be worn on all school buses;
  3. All Quarantine decisions for student and employees shall be governed by LDH guidelines; and
  4. All other Covid protocols shall remain in place.

I will be sending a robo call out tomorrow to all employees and parents to reemphasize our new protocols. 

If you want to post this on your school website, feel free to do so. 


Thanks for all you do!!!
