2021-22 School Year COVID-19 Update

We are excited to start the 2021-22 school year with all of our PRIME TIME families!

As we prepare to welcome our students back into our buildings, we will be taking extra precautions to protect them, as much as possible, as we navigate through the latest wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Our first priority will always be the health and safety of the children entrusted to our care. With the Delta variant spreading rapidly, affecting more children, and with our students currently too young to receive the vaccine themselves, it is the responsibility of the adults around them to utilize every available precaution for their protection. That is why we have made the decision to require vaccinations for all Prime Time employees.. 

This decision has also been made in accordance with Prime Time’s duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of known hazards. Not only will vaccinations help protect the health of our students but that of our employees, our families, and the community as well. In making this decision, the executive leadership team consulted with medical professionals and reviewed data from the Louisiana Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

In order to allow more of our staff to be fully vaccinated to provide the safest possible environment for our students, we have delayed the start of school until September 8.

Please know that we will continue to take additional measures such as having our employees wear masks, sanitizing our buildings, and carrying out frequent hand washing for our students and staff. 

Working together for the good of our students we are confident that we can have a safe, fun, and productive school year. We can’t wait to see all of you on September 8!
