5:00 PM School Board meeting
From BCS Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Varner:
Hello Brewton City School Family,
Brewton City Schools, our community, our region and state, has seen a significant and steady decline in our number of Covid cases. The school system has now been below 1% Covid positive for more than a month. When we made the decision to require face masks, that decision was driven by the data. Now the data indicates that it is time to amend our face mask requirement.
Beginning Monday, Oct. 4, face masks will be optional for students and staff throughout the school system. If you feel inclined to continue wearing a face mask, we encourage you to do so.
Face masks will still be required for students who ride the bus, as that is a federal transportation rule.
Brewton City Schools will continue to implement our other Covid mitigation protocols. We will continue to watch the data, and we will not hesitate to reinstate the mask requirement in the unfortunate event that we see a substantial rise in Covid cases.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we always strive to make decisions that are in the best interest of our students.
