Lafourche Parish public high schools will be shifting to a hybrid schedule after the Thanksgiving holiday in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Schools Superintendent Jarod Martin announced that decision today, saying that as of now, it only pertains to Lafourche high schools, the schools that so far have been hardest hit with coronavirus cases in the parish.
The cases have caused two of the three high schools to shut down in the past few days (South and Central Lafourche) and a third, Thibodaux High School, has had COVID issues this past week.
Students with last names A-H will attend school on 'A' Days, and all other students will attend on 'B' days.
Students will attend on-campus learning two times a week and will alternate Fridays between the two groups.
