“Dear Cameron Parish residents, parents, and students:
“ am sorry for all of the loss that you are experiencing at this time. I know that many of you are taking stock and making personal decisions about the future. While many of you may be searching for a return to normalcy, please be assured that we are currently assessing the damage to each of our 4 campuses.
“While other districts may physically re-open sooner than we can, please be rest assured that Cameron Parish School Board’s first priority is to resume educating our students. We will release an emergency reopening plan as soon as it’s practical for the re-education of students, which may include a mixture of virtual and/or face to face options at first, with the ultimate goal being a return to all 4 our school campuses.
“There is no need to enroll your students in other schools/districts at this time.
“We will be sending out a survey in the very near future, in order to gather information that will better help us formulate those plans.
“We are Cameron Parish schools: we are strong, we are resilient, and we will all be back together soon.
