Updated January 4, 2022
Back to School Guidance
As Attalla City Schools begin the 2022 year, the following guidance is offered concerning COVID:
- Attalla City Schools expects all students to return to in-class learning on January 6, 2022. 2. Vaccinations are encouraged for teachers and students over the age of 12.
- We ask parents to monitor flu and COVID symptoms prior to sending children to school. In the event that your child exhibits COVID or similar symptoms, do not send your child to school. The school will work with you regarding any necessary absences that may occur due to illness.
- Continued social distancing in the school will be beneficial to mitigate the further spread of COVID. 5. Masking is strongly encouraged for all individuals.
- Masking is “required” for passengers and drivers on school buses.
- Schools will be required to report diagnosed cases of COVID to ADHP.
- Individuals who test positive or are diagnosed with COVID will quarantine for 10 days in accordance with ADPH.
- According to the ALSDE, contact tracing is a function of the ADPH. Attalla City Schools will cooperate in the event the ADPH requests support in providing contact tracing for a confirmed case of COVID. 10. All individuals should practice frequent hand washing and respiratory etiquette.
- All students and staff who have symptoms of COVID should remain at home and be referred to their healthcare provider for testing and care.
- At this time, there are no restrictions on attendance or extracurricular activities.
Finally, please recognize and remember that COVID remains a threat outside of the school setting. Vaccinations, facial coverings, social distancing, and hygiene are the best tools to combat this pandemic in all areas of our society.
Attalla City Schools will continue to monitor and provide updated information as needed. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
