All Terrebonne High School classes will be conducted online for two weeks beginning tomorrow as a COVID-19 precaution, Superintendent Philip Martin confirmed with the Times.

Martin said the Louisiana Department of Health recommended the measure. He said he believes the recommendation has more to do with the “exponential effect of quarantining” that’s going on rather than the number of cases at the school.

Terrebonne High School made the following announcement via social media:



Due to recommendations from the LDH, THS will provide virtual learning for the next 2 weeks. Effective January 22nd through February 4th. Students will return Friday, February 5th. Students should follow their regular schedule as teachers will be teaching live according to our regular bell schedule on Google Meet. A Google Meet link will be posted in Google Classroom. Teachers will announce to students to switch classes. There will be no games, practices, or extracurricular activities during this time. These are instructional days. Attendance will be taken, lessons will be taught, and assessments given. Grab and go meals will be provided by the cafeteria from 12:00-12:30 each weekday.
