Dear NOLA-PS Community Members

Last week has given us another great hope in our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and our efforts to keep our students and staff healthy and safe and in school, where the joy of learning can continue to thrive. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday approved emergency authorization for the COVID vaccine for children ages 5-11.

 

This means that almost all our school-age students are now eligible for this safe, effective, and lifesaving prevention measure. We have seen the proven benefits: among the vaccinated there are fewer infections; fewer hospitalizations; and fewer deaths.

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
