COVID-19 Vaccination Policies
The Iberia Parish School Board does not have a policy that requires vaccinations for students or staff. Students and staff who are vaccinated are not required to quarantine after direct known exposure.
Parent & Employee Protocols and Screening Overview
Parents of students and employees are encouraged to self monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to arrival on campus. Individuals with a temperature should not report to school or work. Click HERE for school COVID-19 screening decision chart for parents/students and staff members. This procedure follows the most up-to-date CDC and LDH recommendations. Individuals must stay home, inform the school and notify their healthcare provider if he/she has two or more of the following symptoms: headache, fever, cough, nasal drainage, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, loss of taste, loss of smell. An individual must stay home if he/she may have been in direct contact with someone who has COVID-19. Parents and staff must inform the school/supervisor. Symptomatic students and employees will be isolated who display symptoms of COVID-19. Students will be adequately supervised until the student is picked up. It will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian to promptly pick up the student from school. Students or staff members who have been determined to be in direct contact with an individual with COVID-19 will be asked to quarantine for 10 days and monitor for COVID-19 symptoms. Direct contact is defined as being within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes over a 24-hour period. Vaccinated individuals or individuals who have had COVID-19 within the last 90 days will not have to quarantine. Documentation must be provided for the quarantine to be waived. Seating charts will be maintained to minimize the number of students who will have to quarantine.

1. 10 days after symptom onset OR 10 days after testing positive if you have no symptoms

Visitors on Campus
The safety of our staff and students are our main concern. Non-essential visitors, volunteers, and activities involving external groups will be limited and will be determined by the campus administration. To reduce the spread of the virus and reduce exposure to our staff and students, all unvaccinated visitors and parents must have a face covering and maintain social distance. No parent will be able to eat lunch with their child or visit the classroom.
