Covid Update from Sabine Parish School Board

Dear Parents,

This school year has certainly been full of challenges! Unfortunately, several teachers and students have tested positive or are on quarantine for COVID 19. After consulting with the Louisiana Department of Health and our administrators, we are going to close Florien High School, Zwolle Elementary School and Zwolle High School beginning Oct. 29, through Tuesday, November 3, 2020. All Sabine schools will be closed Tuesday, November 3, Election Day. Students return Wednesday, November 4, 2020. If your child is on quarantine, they must stay home the entire quarantine period of 14 days. If your child has tested positive, they must stay home the entire ten days. We are hoping this time away from school will slow the spread of COVID19. We are hopeful everyone who is ill has a full recovery.

These days will count as Virtual Instruction and assignments will be sent home via Google Classroom or traditional pencil and paper assignments. Assignments will be graded and will count.
These are trying times; please know that I do not take the health and safety of our students and staff lightly. It is very difficult for me to close a school for any period of days, because I know the students need to be in school. Health and safety must be a priority.

Thank you for your continued support. If you have questions, please contact the school or our office.

Sincerely,
Sara P. Ebarb, EdD
Superintendent of Schools
