April 9, 2021: Updated Mask Information for HCS

On April 9, 2021, the mask order for the state of Alabama is set to expire. Hartselle City Schools will modify our protocols as follows:

  • HCS will continue to require masks at indoor events and during the school day until May 25. 2021.
  • HCS will no longer require that masks be worn by students, faculty, staff, and guests during OUTDOOR events such as spring athletic events.
  • Sanitization protocols will continue, as well.

Public schools are held to Alabama Department of Public Health protocols regarding infection and quarantine. Should Governor Ivey reinstate a mandate, HCS will comply and modify our practices as needed.

As of April 7, 2021, HCS has one positive case of COVID-19. In alignment with the Alabama Department of Public Health's directives, 9 students and/or staff who had close contact with those infected have been placed under quarantine.
