The Altamont School is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our faculty, staff, students and parents.

A negative COVID test is required two days prior to returning to school in January. That can be a home test, and the results need not be submitted to the school.


  • We continue to encourage masking, testing and vaccinations for all members of our community.
  • Our partnership continues with UAB to procure voluntary, weekly, surveillance testing on Wednesday in the gym 7:30-9 a.m. Testing will begin in mid-January.
  • If a student or faculty member has fever (100 degrees or more), they are to stay home and get tested.
  • Those who test positive for COVID-19 are to stay home for five days and until they are fever-free for 24 hours. Upon returning to school, they are to mask for five days.
  • The Diner will be used as a limited seating option for students during the lunch hours.
  • We encourage spectators at home indoor athletic contests to wear masks. Socially distanced seating will be available.  Mandated mask regulations for both student-athletes and spectators have been lifted.
  • We will begin to gather again, collectively, in the CKC for assemblies, programs and announcements. Because we are not able to socially distance in that facility, we will require masks during any sessions for all in attendance. We ask that students wear masks on the dates of these activities. The number of occasions that we gather in this fashion will be limited, and there will be masks on hand if needed.
  • CDC Guidelines are changing constantly and can be viewed here.
