Reflection on our COVID-19 Response

Dear NOLA-PS Family and Community,

It is hard to imagine that we are almost two years to the day that the COVID-19 pandemic upended our daily lives. When I reflect on where we are today against where we were on March 13, 2020, I can only say how proud and grateful I am for our amazing community at NOLA Public Schools. From School Board members and school leaders, to principals, teachers, social workers, school nurses and cafeteria workers; from janitors to coaches, band leaders, and especially our parents and students: We came together in our collective hour of need.

NOLA-PS Renaming Initiative

NOLA-PS outlined a plan to rename school facilities in response to recent public requests and in accordance with policy approved by the OPSB to ensure school facilities do not have names honoring figures from our painful past. The board believes all schools should be welcoming, inclusive, and inspiring places for all students. Our goal is to ensure the names of these physical school facilities and the people that we honor reflect the values of the school district. For more information, please visit: nolapublicschools.com/renaming
