Because of an uptick in the number of COVID-19 cases, Southside High School will go back to hybrid learning for all students beginning on Monday, May 10, until further notice.

That's according to a press release from the Lafayette Parish School System, who included the following message to the public:

We implore our entire community to join us in helping slow the spread of this virus. The weather is nice and everyone wants to enjoy activities, but mitigation measures outside the school day and on weekends are still extremely important. We want to remind everyone to wear masks, limit large gatherings, and be proactive in social distancing. We want to do what we can to keep our students in school until the end of May.

According to the school calendar on LPSS' website, students last day of school is Friday, May 28.

Southside High students will return to a hybrid A/B schedule, with Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday being an A day. Students are familiar with this hybrid schedule as they followed it earlier in the school year.
