Masks required in Daleville City Schools

Back To School

DALEVILLE, Ala. (WDHN) — Another Wiregrass school district has made the call regarding their back to school plans.

Late Tuesday night, Daleville City Schools Superintendent, Dr. Lisa Stamps announced that when students and faculty return to class on August 24, they will be required to wear masks while indoors.

This decision was made due to the increase of COVID-19 in the area plus the guidelines set by the ADPH and the CDC.

The DCS Board and administration are especially concerned about students who are under the age to be able to get a vaccination.

“We have to make decisions that will help mitigate the virus and make effort to keep our students and staff safe and healthy as we instruct them,” Dr. Stamps said. “Our reopening plan addresses many of these decisions. In making an attempt to keep people safe, the Board approved the decision to require students and staff to wear masks for all indoor school activities until further notice.”

Daleville City School’s plan on reviewing the requirement when the ADPH drops the level of concern for Dale County.
