Face Coverings are Optional for HCS Effective Thursday, October 6, 2021

Effective Thursday, October 7, face coverings/masks will be optional on Hoover City Schools campuses. You may view our latest COVID-19 dashboard numbers on our website. Face coverings will still be required on buses; this is a federal transportation order that supersedes our district procedures. 

This decision was made based on the school system's Face Covering Matrix Procedures approved by the Hoover Board of Education. District leadership will continue to monitor COVID-19 data according to the Matrix procedures and will notify parents and employees of any future changes related to face coverings.
