Thank you for your cooperation,
There is a change in status of our Indoor Face Covering Decision Matrix because of the consistent rise in the level of positive COVID-19 cases in both Lehigh and Northampton counties. Both counties are in a HIGH level of community transmission rate. Also we have had about 5 positive cases within the school building between faculty and staff members within the last 14 days weeks. For these reasons, we are going to move back up to Tier 2 of our masking matrix which states that masks are recommended indoors for staff and students regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be required in both the health room and guidance offices. Visitors will be required to wear a mask in the school building regardless of vaccination status.
Thank you for your cooperation and continued support of our efforts to keep our students and faculty healthy!

AACMS holds the right to mandate universal masking which may be considered at any time for all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, based on CDC guidance and the level of community and/or building transmission of COVID-19.
