Dear ECELP Families,
Based on Governor John Bel Edwards’ extension of Louisiana’s stay-at-home order as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ECELP campus will remain closed through April 30. As of March 17, your teachers have transitioned to working remotely and are now implementing virtual office hours daily, as well as regular Zoom calls with their classes, in order to maintain social connections. We will continue to monitor and examine the continuation of school closures, and communicate with you again, before drafting future tuition through FACTS. While this has been an adjustment for everyone, I have faith that we will continue to learn and grow together in new ways.

I speak on behalf of the teachers and administrators in sharing that we miss your children and look forward to the day that we can see their smiling faces. In the meantime, please know that we look forward to serving as a resource for you and your family.

Virtual Office Hours & Zoom Class Meetings

Your child's teacher is holding daily office hours to answer any questions you have on your child's development, daily routines, or fun activities!
While screen time is not a primary avenue for learning with young children, social connections are very important for your child during this home-stay. Please take advantage of this time for your child to maintain connection with his/her teacher and classmates and also schedule regular teleconferencing calls with family and friends.

Staying in Touch

We are here to serve you! You can reach out to us through the ECELP website.
