  • 2021-22 Back to School Guidance

    Leeds City Schools is providing the following guidance to all stakeholders of the school system:

     

    1. All students not enrolled in the Leeds Virtual Academy are expected to return to in­ person learning on August 11, 2021.
    2. Vaccinations are encouraged for all persons ages 12 and over. Symptomatic persons will be sent home for 10 days or as otherwise directed by their physician.
    3. Masking Policy Effecitve September 29, 2021  
    4. A.When an individual school’s seven-day percentage of student positive cases reaches 1.00% or below OR when our overall level of community transmission is Moderate (Yellow) or Low (Blue), as determined by the Alabama Department of Public Health, then face coverings will become optional.

      B. We will use our weekly student positive case percentage that is released every Wednesday, and we will require a percentage below or above 1.00% for two consecutive weeks before we will change our requirements between face coverings mandated (over 1.00%) or face coverings optional (at or below 1.00%).

      C. Beginning Thursday, September 30, masking will become optional at school, given that no school has a 1% or greater positive rate over the past two weeks.  

      D. This plan is fluid and subject to change.
    5. Social distancing of a minimum of 3', where possible, will be beneficial in mitigating the spread of Covid. 

      Contact Tracing

      When face coverings become optional, our close contact procedures will have to change slightly. Currently, with all students wearing a face covering, we are only required to identify people who are within 3 feet of the positive person for more than 15 minutes. If a person is not wearing a face covering, then will have to expand that circle to 6 feet around the positive person. We will continue to notify parents of close contacts, ask parents to monitor their children for symptoms, and ask them to make their own decision about isolation from school as long as the child is not exhibiting symptoms. 

       

      If a change to masking is necessary, we will notify parents on Wednesday afternoons no later than 6pm.

    6. Facial coverings will remain mandatory for passengers and drivers on school buses. The Alabama Department of Public Health has interpreted the federal order regarding facial covering requirements on all forms of public transportation to include public school buses. This requirement supersedes the facial covering policy of the schools.
    7. The school nurse will report all suspected or diagnosed cases of Covid to the local Health Department.
    8. School officials will notify close contacts of Covid positive cases as soon as possible.
    9. Frequent handwashing and respiratory etiquette should be observed by all persons
    10. Anyone showing signs of Covid should remain home and see his/her healthcare provider as soon as possible for testing and care.
    11. There are no restrictions on attendance at extracurricular events presently.

     

    LCS will continuously monitor Jefferson County and school system Covid numbers on a daily basis. These guidelines are subject to change.

     

    Please recognize that Covid remains a threat outside of school hours; therefore vaccinations, face coverings, social distancing, and good hygiene are the best-known tools to defeat the virus.

  • Superintendent's Message


    Dear Parents and Students:

    On behalf of the City of Leeds Board of Education, I would like to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. We are honored that you have elected to send your child to our school system, and we take our responsibility to you seriously. Our goal is to educate the whole child so that he/she is ready to meet the challenges of the ever-changing global society and economy in which we live.

    I believe that part of the success of the Leeds School System is based in our commitment to maintaining positive partnerships with all stakeholders: students, parents, teachers, community members, and businesses. We will continue to improve not only standardized scores but to also grow academic offerings in the area of career and technical education in the middle and high school grades. We are excited to provide more for our students than we ever have in the past.

    Our school district was awarded District Accreditation in June 2015 by Advanced Ed, and international accrediting agency of 31,000 schools. This is a designation we should all be proud to claim.

    Please know that we welcome your involvement in our schools, and we hope to make the 2021-2022 school year one of the best for your child. If I may ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact my office.

    Roll Greenwave!

     

    John J. Moore

    Superintendent of Education
