Renovations of Winn Parish school systems are nearly complete after the devastation that Hurricane Laura brought up the parish.

All the schools suffered some damages one way or another, with all of them needing new roofs, and many of them needing interior work due to water damage that was deemed unsafe, with Winnfield Middle School seeing the worst damage and having the 7th and 8th graders transfer to the Winnfield Senior High School building to finish their school year due to excessive water damage.

Parish students return back to school, but so does COVID resurgence

Parish students return back to school, but so does COVID resurgence

Winn Parish Schools started back on Friday, Aug. 6, but this week marks the first full week back for students. The return also marks more changes for schools as COVID-19’s Delta Variant has recently surged throughout the nation

Winn Parish returned back to school this week, and with it COVID-19 has returned back with the new contagious and more deadly Delta variant.

Gov. John Bel Edwards reinstated a state-wide mask mandate on Aug. 2 hat will last until next month, which includes all students from Kindergarten to grade 12 to wear mask while at school, which has caused a heated debate in the parish and the state.

“At this point the issue is not what is my opinion or what is that of our board members,” Superintendent Alfred Simmons said. “Rather the issue is wheter the district must follow the governor’s mandates.

The governor also pointed out that the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) and local health officials recommend that mask be worn in schools.

Louisiana could see another mask mandate after Delta variant goes across state

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards on Friday said he is “seriously considering” the reinstatement of a statewide face mask mandate as his state leads the country for new COVID-19 case growth per capita and is among the least vaccinated states in the nation.

“At this point, it’s not whether we vaccinate or mask. We have to do both,” Edwards said in a news conference. “When the facts change and you learn new things, you have to change your approach. You can’t keep doing the same thing and just hope for a better outcome.”

In May, Edwards lifted his state’s face mask mandate, saying most fully vaccinated residents no longer have to wear them indoors as access to vaccinations expanded. But last week, the governor, along with the Louisiana Department of Health, amended mask guidelines and asked both vaccinated and unvaccinated residents to wear face masks indoors amid the case surge.
