JEFFERSON PARISH, La. — Dozens of schools in Jefferson Parish schools reopened on Friday more than a month after Hurricane Ida devastated the region.

Forty-two schools in the parish's school systems Tier 3 reopening plan returned to classes on Friday. Three separate tiers were used to determine how safe the schools were for students and employees following damages from Hurricane Ida.

“Our main goal has always been to safely reopen schools and as quickly as possible,” said JP Schools Superintendent Dr. James Gray. “Public schools are a cornerstone of a strong, well-functioning community. Our schools exist to provide children with the education they deserve to succeed in life and make our world a better place. At a more basic level, schools provide a sense of normalcy and a safe place for children during the day."
