SCS not requiring mask this upcoming school year; COVID-19 vaccines available at registration

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – As schools across the state begin to transition back to the traditional learning model, students in the Sylacauga City School System will not be required to wear a mask in the classroom this upcoming year if vaccinated.

“The governor has issued statements that say masks are optional and we will abide by Governor Ivey’s orders,” said SCS superintendent Dr. Michele Eller.

The number of positive COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Alabama. In an effort to help slow the spread of the virus, SCS is partnering with Coosa Valley Medical Center to offer COVID vaccines to parents, students and faculty during registration on July 26-28.
