JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - Jefferson County Superintendent Walter Gonsoulin says students will soon have the option to return to in-person learning.
“We plan to bring students back in three groups. Each group will follow an A/B schedule for approximately two weeks. After that time, students will return to class five days a week,” Gonsoulin said in a release.

Gonsoulin says transportation will be provided. Masks are required for faculty, staff, and any student K-12. Masks are highly encouraged for pre-K students.
“We are going to do everything possible to keep students, teachers, and staff safe during our return. However, flexibility is going to be key. I appreciate your patience and understanding as we move forward,” Gonsoulin concluded.
