*If your student is absent due to illness, has tested positive for COVID or is self-isolating, please contact the school nurse.
*Please note that if a student has a fever, he/she should remain home until fever free for 72 hours or documentation from a health care provider is returned to school. (Please read "When to Keep Your Child Home" below.)
Beginning August 25, any student who is in close contact of a COVID positive case will be required to self-isolate unless he/she meets one of the following exceptions:
1. Student is fully vaccinated (two weeks after the final required dose)
2. Student has tested positive for COVID in the previous 90 days and has fully recovered
3. Student has been properly and consistently wearing masks and is sitting at least 3 feet from others in a classroom setting
In person learning will operate as normally as possible (pre-COVID 19) with prevention measures in place until such time as the district is unable to do so without substantial risk of transmission of disease. Should the number of positive cases within the student population of a particular school and/or extracurricular groups of said school reach 10%, additional measures (such as mandatory masks or temporarily transitioning to online instruction) will be taken to ensure the health and safety of staff and students.
Schools will limit the number of visitors in its buildings to reduce large gatherings to the best extent possible.
Masks will not be mandatory at this time. However, the district strongly encourages staff and students to wear masks. Autauga County Schools reserves the right to change this position should it be deemed necessary.
