The Tuscaloosa City School system has announced that it will continue with its current schedule until the March 15-19 spring break.

As the schedule stands, students will receive in-person instruction from Monday-Thursday and will receive virtual instruction on Friday. In a Monday email sent to TCS parents and guardians, Superintendent Dr. Mike Daria believes that it is "possible to return to five days of in-person instruction later this spring," but will not make that decision until after the break.

"In an effort to balance the demands on our educators while simultaneously planning with EMA for vaccinations as soon as possible, we will keep Fridays as virtual through spring break," Daria said in the email. "We thank our educators, parents, and students for their patience and support as we do our best to keep our schools open and safe."

The school system returned to a full, four-day-a-week in-person instruction on Jan. 19. Prior to that, students returned to the classroom in a staggered schedule where they were separated into Green and Gray groups. The schedule allowed equal class time for both groups as they alternated days where students were taught in the classrooms.
