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 is adapted from the Louisiana Department of Health. Individuals must stay home, inform the school and notify their healthcare provider if he/she has fever and/or two or more of the following symptoms: fever (100.4 or higher), shortness of breath, chest pain, cough, body aches or fatigue, GI symptoms (nausea, diarrhea), loss of taste, loss of smell or other flue or cold like symptoms such as headache, sore throat or congestion. An individual must stay home if he/she is experiencing COVID-like symptoms (fever and/or any two or more COVID-19 symptoms). 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.
Requirements to return to school/work for symptomatic or COVID-19 positive individuals:
1. 5 days after symptom onset OR 5 days after testing positive if you have no symptoms. Day 6-10 return to school or work wearing a mask. If school cannot ensure masking for 5 days, then case should isolate for the full 10 days.
2. 24 hours fever-free without use of fever-reducing meds
3. Significant improvement of symptoms
4. A written letter from Healthcare Provider with an alternate diagnosis
Essential field trips will be allowed with special permission from district staff. If approved, masking,
cohorting, and transportation requirements must be followed.
Travel to essential conferences or workshops must be pre-approved by district staff and attendees
must follow current COVID-19 protocols.
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. No parent will be able to eat lunch with their child or visit the classroom.
