DALEVILLE, Ala. (WDHN) — The new mask update requires school employees and students 2nd grade and above to wear masks.
Daleville City Schools superintendent said she agrees with the new order.
“That is something we can do to keep our students from spreading,” Daleville City Schools superintendent Lisa Stamps said. “It’s you know, not guaranteed, but that is something we can do. So we’re going to make every effort.”
Doctor Stamps said the schools will have masks available for students who forget their mask at home.
She believes the students will comply with wearing masks but the schools will be prepared if some are opposed to wearing them.
“Our councilors and our teachers will talk with them about the importance of it, and we’re not going to let it be a stumbling block,” Stamps said. “We’re gonna hope that they’ll do what they need to do and we can get about the business of instructing them.”
The order was extended to the 31st of August and state representatives believe it’s best for the state.
“We need to hold firm on it,” Alabama Representative Steve Clouse said. “I know it’s an inconvenience to a lot of folks, but you know I wear my mask every time I go in a store, or a public place. Just practice personal responsibility by social distancing to try to defeat this thing.”
