DCSS Face Mask Requirements

July 30, 2021

 Dear Dooly County School System Families,

 Due to rising cases of COVID-19, Dooly County Schools will require masks to be worn in schools for students and adults until further notice. This includes vaccinated and unvaccinated persons.  Masks are required on all school buses. Our goal is to keep school doors open and continue with traditional in-person school. This requires everyone to work together and protect each other.

 When students/staff are discovered to be COVID-positive, we will send home a letter that lets you know that your child was in close proximity to a person with a positive test. If your child does not receive a letter, then he/she was not determined to be in close contact. We ask that everyone socially distance, stay home when sick, and wear masks in school buildings. Most importantly, we encourage all eligible persons to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Thank you.


Dr. Craig Lockhart
