St. Tammany students return to class in staggered groups

Public school students in St. Tammany Parish return to the classroom in staggered groups today.

Beginning September 8 through 11, St Tammany Parish Public School System starts its “Safe Start Days” for the 2020-2021 school year.

One-fourth of students will report to school each day based on the first letter of their last name.

On September 14, students will begin their regular school schedule for either distance learning, hybrid, or in-person learning.  The STPPS Virtual School will follow the revised calendar.

The new start date and staggered return to classrooms comes after the parish school system pushed back its original “Safe Start Days” which was scheduled on August 17.
