Due to COVID-19 prevalence, city schools will be closed Friday

Published 4:07 pm Tuesday, January 11, 2022

To our Bogalusa City School family and community:

We realize that at this time there is a significant number of infected persons in our parish and our school system. In order to combat the infection that seems to be extremely high at this time, we will not have school on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022. We will utilize this time to “deep clean” our schools and facilities.

We have a holiday on Monday, Jan. 17, in observance of Martin Luther King Day. We sincerely hope and pray that over the four-day weekend, we will see a difference in our infection rate in our parish and system and can return to school healthy.

Please continue to mask, keep a safe distance, and hand wash regularly to prevent the spread. We will continue with masking until this pandemic and upswing with Omicron or COVID-19 resolves. Please remember to keep you or your children/child home if any symptoms are obvious, such as sore throat, fever, aches and vomiting. Let your child’s school know if he/she tests positive for the virus.

Thank you as always for allowing BCSS to educate your children. Please know that we will continue to take every precaution that is necessary to prevent the spread in our schools.
