Change in the District Calendar
To the parents and students of Bogalusa City Schools:
The Bogalusa City School Board met last night and voted for our schools to complete our fall semester on Friday, December 18, instead of Wednesday, December 23, 2020. Therefore, this Friday will be our last day for students and it will be only a ½ day of instruction. Students will return on Monday, January 4, 2021. All school work, whether it is virtual or face-to-face, will resume on that Monday.
At this time, it is still uncertain whether students will return to school in person or remain virtual. However, we will keep a close watch on the COVID numbers, and make a decision soon regarding learning status for our students and employees. Safety and educating our children remain the most important concerns for us. We will continue to accomplish both with the guidance from the CDC, LDOE, and LDHH.
Please continue to remember that our teachers and staff are working diligently to educate your children from afar, and they have been working around the clock to provide a learning experience that your child/children can understand and find success within. We ask that you continue to support our administrators, teachers, and staff as they reach out to you and your children, and be patient and receptive to their concern for your children’s educational needs and success.
As the Superintendent of Bogalusa City Schools, I am asking each parent and guardian to understand that our teachers are working to provide an education for your children from a distance. It is not an easy task, but they have stepped up and are working to provide the best educational experience possible. Therefore, please be mindful of their time at home, and allow them to have time at night to rejuvenate and prepare for the next day. If there is a problem with a teacher or class, I ask you to reach out to the Principal of the school, and let’s work together to solve the problem.
This has been a year unlike any of us have ever seen. I believe that the faculty and staff at our schools in BCSS have gone above and beyond in their professional endeavors to provide the best education for our children during this time of virtual learning. Please work with our teachers as they reach out to you for assistance and to help you during this time. Each call and contact made is to keep communication open and to help educate our children.
Thank you as always for allowing Bogalusa City Schools to educate your children. We take pride in providing the best for our students. I hope and pray that you all have a safe and healthy Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Lisa Tanner, Superintendent
