Naps and Snacks No Longer Required In State of Louisiana

The two best things about being a kindergartner are gone — naps & snacks.

The Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education is no longer requiring schools to give naps and snacks to students.

Now, to be fair, they are no longer requiring the aforementioned, but that doesn’t mean schools can’t still allow both of these long time favorites of the 5-year-olds.

Lafayette Parish Superintendent Dr. Pat Cooper says there is some leeway in the provision. He says principals and teachers can agree and decide if their students will be able to nap or have a small snack.

“There’s a lot for these children to learn, but at the same time we have to be sensitive; they’re five year olds,” Cooper says. “Every teacher has been instructed that if a child looks really tired they have to allow them to take that little rest. There just won’t be a formal nap time.”

Cooper went on to say that schools will not provide snacks, but parents can send something with their child to school.
