Arab City Schools have switched to a “mask preferred” policy. The system had been operating under a “mask required” policy since the beginning of the school year in August.

Arab Superintendent Dr. Johnny Berry said the system has seen a significant decline in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in recent weeks, which is the main reason for the change.

The school system changed to masks preferred on Monday, Oct. 4.

“Arab City Schools will continue to monitor positive cases and decisions regarding masks will be adjusted as needed,” Berry said. “Thank you to our ACS family for working together to keep everyone safe.”

At presstime Wednesday, there was a total of seven Covid positive cases in the school system – students and staff.
