BOIL WATER ADVISORY
This is an important message from New Beginnings Schools Foundation, which runs Lake Area High School, Medard Nelson Charter, and Capdau Charter schools.
We have received notification that the eastbank of Orleans Parish is under a precautionary boil water advisory. During this time of the boil water advisory, we want parents to know the following:
Students were served a “convenient” breakfast and will also be served a "convenient" lunch that does not require any water-related preparation.
Schools are boiling any water used to clean and prepare dishes, utensils, and kitchenware.
All water fountains are being covered to ensure students do not drink from them.
Schools are utilizing hand sanitizer in lieu of handwashing.
As additional or updated information becomes available, schools will inform parents using our ROBO call system
Please be assured that we are taking all steps necessary to keep children's safety in mind and that all schools will function under normal schedule and routines for the time being.
Thank you for your cooperation.
