As news continues to emerge regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Tuscaloosa City Schools wants to remind staff, students, and families that washing your hands, covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing, and remaining at home when sick or feverish are the best ways to prevent the spread of flu or other respiratory illnesses. This information will be reiterated to students in the days leading up to spring break.
Should your family plan to travel during Spring Break to an area with known COVID-19 cases, please notify the principal.
Although there are no confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in Alabama at this time, TCS and other school systems across the nation have been advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to "plan and prepare." The system is coordinating efforts with local authorities, including the City of Tuscaloosa and the Tuscaloosa County Emergency Management Agency, to ensure a continuity of efforts. Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox and his team have offered their assistance and support.
