Updated Mask Requirements for Dooly County Schools
'Headed to the top': Dooly County Schools first in the mid state heading back to class https://wgxa.tv/news/local/headed-to-the-top-dooly-county-schools-first-in-the-mid-state-to-head-back-to-class
Dear Dooly County School System Families, The delta variant of the COVID-19 virus continues to plague our nation and the world. As of this writing, only 26% of the Dooly County population has been vaccinated, and children under the age of 12 are currently not eligible for vaccines. We are following CDC/DPH guidance, and masks are required on school buses and highly recommended in classrooms. The Principals and Teachers will let you know if they are requiring masks in classrooms/schools for health purposes. Requirements can change at any time, so please be flexible. We will follow public health guidance and alert families if long-term changes are necessary. Please bring masks to school, socially distance yourselves when possible, remain home when you are sick, and consider vaccination at your earliest convenience if you are able to do so. We will get through this together. Thank you. Respectfully, Dr. Craig Lockhart Superintendent
