Covid Restriction and Orientations
Caddo Parish Schools Superintendent Dr. Goree recently announced a strict policy that schools will not be allowed to have parents in the buildings for any reason including orientations or tours. Therefore we regret to inform you that the "New-to-SIE" orientation previously scheduled for Friday, 8/20 has been cancelled. New Bulldogs in 1st to 5th grade need to arrive the same as other students by bus or carpool for the first day of school on Monday, 8/23 (see times below). We will have plenty of staff to meet the new students and direct them to their classroom and help carry supplies as needed.
Kindergarten parents will receive a letter in the mail detailing their entrance procedures, dates and times. Please call the school if you have not received your letter.
Pre-K parents will receive a call from your child's teacher explaining the entrance procedures, dates and times.
We will have ZOOM BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT on Tuesday, August 31st at 6:00 PM. Teachers will send their zoom links to parents.
Covid Protocols 2021 - 2022
Shreve Island will be following all the district mandated guidelines for Covid precautions. You may review those here: Caddo Strong Start 2.0. These include:
All students will be required to wear masks this year while indoors. Masks are not required while outdoors.
Visitors/parents will not be allowed in the building.
All students will need to bring water bottles since water fountains are closed. We have bottle refilling stations.
Hot lunches will be provided in the cafeteria this year.
Hand-washing and hygiene will continue to be stressed, and high touch areas will be cleaned frequently.
Parents should monitor their children for symptoms. Students with fever of 100.4 or feeling ill should be kept home. A doctor's note will be required for return to school of students staying/sent home with a fever of 100.4.
Students displaying fever or symptoms at school will be isolated until a parent arrives.
The school should be notified immediately if your child has been in close contact with a Covid positive individual.
Static groups of students will be maintained to the extent possible.
Contact tracing may result in quarantining of students who meet the criteria of close contact with a Covid positive individual.
The district has stated that these guidelines will be reviewed and amended at least every nine weeks based on ongoing conditions in the community.
