The Lafayette Parish School System will soon announce plans for the upcoming school year, while still in the coronavirus pandemic.

However, LPSS just posted on Facebook that they are considering virtual leaning to start the school year.

Being that this scenario may soon be a reality, a few community businesses have come together and are offering reduced-price internet service.

Cox, LUS, and AT&T will offer reduced rates for their internet service so that kids can be part of the online learning process.

The discounted rates would allow families who can't currently afford the service to get access to it for distance learning. LPSS says if parents want to prepare for the upcoming lessons, they should contact the providers now to discuss discounted rates.

We anticipate LPSS announcing their plans for the upcoming school year by July 22nd. Continue to check back here for all future announcements.
