Traditional students in Huntsville City Schools (HCS) will remain on a staggered schedule through Friday, Jan. 15, 2021.  Following consultation with public health officials, administrators are continuing with the staggered schedule through the end of next week following an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the area. 

The schedule for next week is as follows: 

Cohort A:

  • Monday, Jan. 11 and Tuesday, Jan. 12: On campus learning
  • Wednesday, Jan. 13 - Friday, Jan. 15: Remote learning

Cohort B:

  • Monday, Jan. 11 and Tuesday, Jan. 12: Remote learning
  • Wednesday, Jan. 13 - Friday, Jan. 15: On campus learning

This announcement does not impact students enrolled in Huntsville Virtual Academy (HVA). 

HCS reminds stakeholders of the district’s health protocols while on campuses including requiring students and staff members to wear masks at all times, practicing social distancing to the greatest extent possible, encouraging frequent hand washing and sanitizing, adhering to directional signage, and prohibiting visitors in school buildings. 

Students who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should remain home from school and seek medical treatment. Symptoms include new cough, new loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever or chills, muscle or body aches, headaches, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue. 

As a reminder, schools and offices will be closed on Monday, Jan. 18 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Plans for the week of Jan. 18 will be announced prior to dismissing for the MLK holiday weekend.
