ANDERSON - Anderson Community Schools (ACS) announced today that masks will be required for all students, teachers, and staff beginning on Monday, August 9th. The mask mandate will be in place until the end of the first grading period on Friday, October 1st.
ACS Superintendent Dr. Joe Cronk said the district has been reviewing its 2021-2022 Reentry plans in light of new state and federal guidance and a conversation earlier today with the Madison County Health Department.
“Due to the rise in positive cases and community spread, the Madison County Health Department has recommended that masks be worn by all K-12 students. “We feel doing so at this time is necessary to ensure we can maintain a safe, in-person learning environment for our students.”
Parents and guardians are asked to continue keeping their students home if they aren't feeling well. And, if they are experiencing any COVID-19 like symptoms, to get tested and report a positive case result to their school building immediately.
ACS will continue to monitor COVID-19 numbers and guidance.
