From the St. Tammany Parish Public School System website:

When will school start?
The start of the school year has been delayed until after Labor Day. Students will begin September 8-11 in a staggered approach with “Safe Start Days” where one-fourth of students will report to school each day based on the first letter of their last name. On September 14, students will begin their regular school schedule, whether it is distance learning, hybrid, or in-person at that time. All 56 schools including the STPPS Virtual School will follow this calendar. To view our updated 2020-2021 school year calendar, click here.

Grab-&-Go Meals Available for Virtual & Hybrid Students

Drive-thru pick up of Grab & Go meals will be available for students enrolled in the STPPS Virtual School and students in the hybrid model on days they are not on campus in person and are participating in distance learning at home. At this time, under Louisiana Phase 2, students enrolled in traditional brick-and-mortar schools in grades 6-12 would be in the hybrid learning model.

Parents/caregivers MUST complete and submit a meal consent form for each child and select a pick-up location prior to picking up Grab & Go meals for the first time.
