With school out for a month, parents picking up weeks' worth of school work in Livingston Parish
LIVINGSTON - School systems are still sorting out the best way to continue the education process now that students are required to stay at home.
At Southside Elementary in Livingston Parish, teachers prepared four weeks worth of school work for their students.
Tuesday afternoon, parents were able to drive up to the school while teachers handed them their students' assignments. They used gloves and practiced social distancing as they approached vehicles.
Assistant principal Joshua Martin says these protocols are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
"We just wanted to take precautions to make sure we're keeping everybody safe. We're keeping that social distancing going, and so we don't have anything transferring if we can help it."
Martin says students will also have access to online curriculum and packets while their school is shut down for a deep cleaning for the next few weeks.
"We're going to have a lot of this stuff available on our school website so that they can continue to get it. We just really want to still be a service to them during this time."
On Wednesday, school staff will be handing out meals for students in need at 14 different schools around Livingston Parish.
