Dear Albemarle School Family,
As you are aware, Albemarle School has followed the StrongSchoolsNC Toolkit throughout this recent health crisis and will continue to follow the guidance in this toolkit. There have been some recent revisions that we want everyone to be aware of.
When school resumes on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, masks will become optional. Students and staff are still to have a mask with them at all times. Teachers may require the wearing of masks when students are in close proximity during small groups or other such activities. Additionally, students who may be in close proximity to a student or staff member who have tested positive will no longer be required to quarantine away from school. Students who are in close proximity will be notified and will be asked to wear a mask for the following ten (10) days, but may continue to come to school as long as they remain symptom free.
Thank you for your understanding with these changes and for your diligence in helping Albemarle School remain operational during these uncertain times.
On another note, registration for the 2022-2023 school year begins March 15, 2022 for returning students. If you know of any new families that would like to attend Albemarle School, their enrollment opens on April 12, 2022.
Again, thank you for making Albemarle School a great place to work and learn. I continue to wish everyone continued good health and safety.
Melvin L. Hawkins
