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