On August 4, 2020, the Alabama Department of Public Health published updated guidance for safely reopening schools. This guidance has essentially become a mandate. These new updates require that all students in close contact- defined as closer than six feet for more than fifteen cumulative minutes (masked or unmasked)- shall quarantine for fourteen consecutive days, which amounts to, in most cases, ten school days. The staggered schedule will allow us to properly social distance within our classrooms in an effort to reduce the number of close contact exposures. This in turn will allow us to continue operation and greatly minimize both exposure and quarantine of students and teachers. We have seen and realized that our original attempts to social distance and minimize class sizes, due to offering remote learning options, are not sufficient enough to ensure six feet of distance between all students and staff. This plan will allow us to operate with potentially less than 50% of our student population on campus daily. This will enable more adequate arrival, transition, lunch, and dismissal procedures to be implemented. As previously stated, part of providing a high-quality education is to ensure the health, welfare, and safety of our students and our staff members.
Students with last names that begin with A-K will attend BLUE days- Mondays & Wednesdays.
Students with last names that begin with L-Z will attend WHITE days- Tuesdays & Thursdays.
ALL students will be virtual on Fridays.
