Caddo Strong Start Plan
2021-2022 Covid Guidance

  • Everyone will wear masks indoors. 

  • Your child should come to school with a mask every day.

  • Masks must be worn by everyone indoors and on buses. 


  • The composition of a group may change if students are able to maintain a physical distance of at least three feet from other students and six feet from adults in a classroom or indoor setting, to the greatest extent possible. 

  • Proper spacing will occur in every classroom where class size allows for it.


  • Exposed individuals who have been vaccinated will not need to quarantine, but are encouraged to monitor their symptoms over the 72 hours following exposure and encouraged to get tested if symptoms arise.

  • Non-vaccinated individuals will quarantine based on CDC guidelines.  We will quarantine based on contact tracing guidelines, just as we did last year.  If your child has been exposed to a positive case, you will be notified and asked to pick up your child from school immediately upon finding out about exposure.


  •  Visitors are allowed only in the office area.  A designated area outside will be available for late drop offs.  Only essential personnel will be allowed on campus at this time.

  • We are encouraged to have as many events outside as possible.

  • Instruction will be given face-to-face for 5 days a week (in person).

  • Students will not be allowed to have lunches delivered to campus.

  • Water fountains will remain off except for the touchless bottle refill stations. Please send your child with a water bottle daily.


  • The parish will provide basic sanitation products for schools and teachers.

  • We will again be spraying high touch surfaces around the school with our electrostatic sprayer.

  • Students will be grouped in static groups to the greatest extent possible (this means stay with the same children most of the time).


  • Field trips will be allowed as long as we are following the social distancing guidelines and mask mandates. 


We appreciate each of you.  Thank you for giving us grace and understanding as we work together to have an amazing year!
