A Message from the Louisiana Department of Education

Dear Parents,

 While there is no call for alarm, we must acknowledge the recent Ebola diagnoses in Texas. At this time, we have no reason to believe that the situation presents a threat to the students or staff members of Calcasieu Parish public schools.

 In Louisiana, public health and emergency response professionals are monitoring the situation in the Dallas area.

 For informational purposes, the Louisiana Department of Education has requested that we share a flier with details on how the virus is spread and how to protect individuals from infection.

 The health and safety of our students and staff members is always a top priority. As such, we will continue to monitor the situation and inform you as updates are made.
