COVID-19

The Alabama School of Math and Science has dedicated personnel, time, and resources to the reopening our campus, so that we can provide the safest, high quality educational environment for our students, faculty, and staff members. ASMS established a COVID-19 Task Force to meet our goals using strategies of all kinds: testing measures, enhanced cleaning, classroom procedures, housing policies, security and wellness programs, and more.

ASMS is continuing to review the guidelines released by health officials. Conditions are changing rapidly, and we acknowledge that there is no perfect solution or perfect plan to appease all community members. However, we have done our absolute best through prioritizing our community’s greatest asset – our people. In the months ahead, we ask for grace, patience, and flexibility from all community members as together we navigate this different and likely very challenging school year.

On Wednesday, July 15, 2020, President John Hoyle shared an important update about the ASMS COVID-19 plan that outlines how we will operate for 2020-2021 school year.
