Mansfield Elementary and Middle School students will return to in-person learning tomorrow, October 27, 2020. Superintendent Corley stated, “We appreciate the cooperation last week from our families, faculty, and staff as students transitioned to virtual-only learning as a precaution. As always, DeSoto Parish Schools will continue to take extra measures to sanitize all buildings and practice procedures recommended by local and state health officials. We ask that our families continue to practice healthy habits as we all work together to provide amazing opportunities for our children.” 1. Stay home if you don’t feel well or experience COVID-like symptoms 2. Wear a face mask 3. Practice social distancing 4. Practice hand hygiene

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.
