Released: 02/24/2022

Adair County Schools will always strive to provide the safest and best learning experience to each of our students. In hopes of keeping students in classes, we have decided to make some changes to help ensure students can stay in school. We have consulted with local and regional health professionals and feel these changes make an educated attempt for us all to live in these times of COVID. We monitor CDC guidelines and will continue to monitor them as we move forward.

The major change will be starting February 28, 2022: Adair County Schools will no longer be quarantining students based on close contact during the school day or school activity.

Please know that we will continue to always require masks while on our busses.
