    ANNOUNCEMENT

    Alexander County Board of Education voted at the October 12 board meeting to use a procedure to determine the need for indoor masking in our schools. Masks will not be required when the number of positive cases in the school system is 20 or less for a three-week rolling average. This average will be determined using three consecutive weeks, beginning with the week of October 4-8 totals.

    We have created an Alexander County Schools COVID Dashboard to assist you in tracking this information. Please note the dashboard includes data for the entire school year, even though our calculations begin October 4-8. We will also post an announcement on the district website, social media, and via the call system.

    This week indoor masking is optional. Masks are required on school buses.

     Thank you for your part in keeping our students and community safe.

    If you have any questions regarding the COVID dashboard, please contact your school’s principal for assistance.
