Important Message from Dr. Suzanne Lacey - Mar. 19, 2021
March 19, 2021
On April 9, 2021, Governor Ivey’s mask mandate will expire. In an effort to continue to promote the health and wellness of our staff and students, I highly recommend that staff members and students six years and older continue to wear a mask/face covering for the duration of the school year. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also recommends the wearing of masks/face coverings as a mitigation strategy to help control the spread of COVID-19 in their most recent guidelines. Further, the return to five days of instruction on March 15 has limited the capacity for social distancing in most schools, classrooms, and buses.
The health and wellness of our staff and students is top priority. Although wearing a mask will be a personal choice after April 9, exercising this personal responsibility will protect yourself and others and strengthen the chance of completing the school year successfully.
I look forward to the upcoming school year and returning to a sense of normalcy.
