Different school districts in the Tennessee Valley have different rules. These are subject to change.

Albertville City Schools announced on April 5 that following the expiration of Gov. Kay Ivey's mask mandate, masks will become optional in the district. Albertville City Schools said this decision was made after polling teachers, staff and the community task force. 

"We ask that students have a mask with them at school and to wear them if they are in areas closer than 3 feet apart for more than 15 minutes," the district wrote in a Twitter post.

Jackson County Schools announced that masks will now be optional.

Lauderdale County Schools Superintendent Jerry Hill announced on April 2 that the district's mask policy would end following the expiration of Gov. Ivey's mandate.

"It will no longer be a requirement that we wear masks," Hill said. "But we encourage our students and employees to be respectful of others."

Limestone County Schools Superintendent Randy Shearhouse announced that starting April 12, masks will be optional in Limestone County Schools.

“A majority of our faculty and staff are now vaccinated and are beyond the two-week window, therefore, reducing their need to quarantine,” Shearouse said. "Schools will continue to follow safety protocols including social distancing, frequent hand washing, and extra cleaning measures."

Madison City Schools Superintendent Ed Nichols announced that the district will continue to require masking within schools.'
