Masks Optional Indoor At Schools

As a result of the statewide mask mandate being lifted by Governor Edwards, DeSoto Parish Schools will return to our original operational guidelines which make the wearing of face coverings optional for all students and staff while indoors.

DeSoto schools announced the change a short time after Governor Edwards revised the state stand on wearing masks.  For local schools, this change went into effect on Wednesday, October 27, 2021. The district will continue to follow all quarantine protocols as established by the Louisiana Department of Health.
