The Alabama State Department of Education recently issued detailed guidelines for schools as they begin to reopen and allow students back on campus.
Phase 3 of the reopening plan began June 1, when limited access to campus facilities for summer learning opportunities and extracurricular activities was given to students in grades seven-12 under social distancing and heightened sanitation restrictions.
Phase 4, which will give younger students the same access as upperclassmen, is scheduled for July 6.
The planned return to school for the 2020-2021 academic year – Phase 5 – is set for August.
