Raiders, in the City of Alpharetta, the number of positive Covid cases is now less than 100 per 100,000 residents; therefore, Fulton County Schools has allowed masks to now be optional on campus for Alpharetta HS. Please note that masks must be worn on busses still because of a federal mandate. Bus drivers reported some students refusing to wear a mask this morning. Students, please know refusing to wear your mask on an FCS bus is not an option. If you ride a bus, please keep a mask with you so you may use it while riding the bus. Failure to do so would be insubordination which could lead to disciplinary consequences, and we don’t want that for any of our students.
Now that masks are optional, it is important to remember that one of our core values at AHS is Respect. Each of us now has a choice in terms of whether to wear a mask or not, and we need to respect each others’ decision. We are a diverse community with a wide range of backgrounds, and one’s decision is based on many factors that one may or may not want to share with others. Thank you in advance for respecting your fellow Raiders. If you have any issue related to optional mask wearing, please reach out to your teacher or your administrator for guidance and support.
