Parents, we will no longer be able to accept concession money through the office on Fridays. To minimize interruptions to instruction, please make sure your student brings concession money in his/her backpack on Friday.
October 27, 2021 The statewide mask mandate has been lifted by Governor Edwards, and we will follow our original operational guidelines which allow mask coverings optional for students and staff. Although masks are optional on school campuses, masks must still be worn on school buses due to the federal transportation mandate. Our district will follow quarantine protocols set forth by the Louisiana Department of Health. If a person is considered in close contact, they must be quarantined to limit the spread of COVID unless fully vaccinated and asymptomatic. We are encouraged by the decline of positive cases in our district. As always, we will continue to monitor the trends of positive cases in our schools and communities and will make adjustments to our mitigation measures if the need should arise.
As a result of the statewide mask mandate being lifted by Governor Edwards, DeSoto Parish Schools will return to our original operational guidelines which make the wearing of face coverings optional for all students and staff while indoors. This change will take effect beginning Wednesday, October 27, 2021. The district will continue to follow all quarantine protocols as established by the Louisiana Department of Health.

Parents, if your child has symptoms and a doctor recommends a COVID test, please ask for a molecular/PCR test. If a suspect case (student with symptoms) tests negative with this type of test and is symptom free for 24 hours he/she can return to school.
Please do not send your child to school if he/she is having flu-like symptoms. If your child is tested for COVID, do not send your child to school until you get the results and keep us updated. Assignments will be posted in the Google Classroom.
MES students may arrive at morning car drop off beginning at 7:15. The two lanes nearest the building are for MES drop offs. Thank you for helping us to keep our students safe. #messtrongstart

Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our students, staff, and families, and in consultation with the LA Department of Health, Mansfield Elementary and Middle School will shift to virtual-only instruction beginning tomorrow, Thursday, October 22, and return to face-to-face learning on Tuesday, October 27. We have recently noticed an increase in the number of students exhibiting flu-like symptoms and want to take every precaution possible to ensure the safety and health of our students, staff, and families. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
REMINDER: There will be no face-to-face instruction for students Thursday or Friday. Students will participate in remote learning only. Due to the likelihood of power outages in the area during the storm, no “new” learning will be introduced. Students should use this time to catch up on missing assignments and study for upcoming tests. Stay safe! #DeSotoStrong
