From the School Leader (updated 8/18/21):

The leadership team at New Harmony is paying very close attention to what’s going on regarding covid, and we are modifying our policies according to what the Louisiana Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control recommend. At this point, BESE has not given us permission to have a virtual school option. As usual, we will follow all state policies for hygiene, social distance, and masking (with a school mask mandate whether vaccinated or not), and we encourage all of our students and families to be vaccinated. We will have a full school with 4 grades, but no classes are large– all can be properly distanced. We will release more guidance as we have it.

Thank you for your trust as we navigate this unprecedented situation.
