Why is it important to return in person? 

In-person learning provides:

  • A structured environment where teachers and staff can personally interact with students and support individualized learning.
  • An opportunity for students to meet their classmates, build lifelong friendships and engage in group-oriented lessons.
  • Adaptable learning and greater flexibility for teachers to personalize instruction for all types of learners.

 

What are we doing to promote the safety of staff and students?

As we continue in-person learning, our top priority will remain the safety of our students and staff. 

Our approach to preventing transmission within school buildings, reducing disruptions to in-person learning and helping protect people who are not fully vaccinated (including all children under the age of 12) will involve layering multiple prevention strategies, as recommended by the CDC.

Our layered prevention approach will include the following measures:

Encouraging vaccinations for all eligible individuals 

  • Vaccinations are proven as the leading strategy for preventing transmission of COVID-19, according to the CDC.
  • Vaccinations for those eligible will help us maintain in-person learning and help students and teachers return to pre-pandemic life.

Recommending masks for students, staff and visitors regardless of vaccination status.

  • While the state of Michigan has rescinded its order requiring face masks in educational settings, we continue to recommend masks in our school buildings
  • Masks will be required for those who return to school after a five-day isolation after exposure – these individuals are required to wear a mask for five days upon their return to school 

Enhancing sanitation throughout all campuses

  • The MDHHS recommends cleaning once a day to remove potential viruses that may be on surfaces. Our operations team has gone above and beyond this recommendation, including using hospital-grade equipment to sanitize classrooms and shared spaces.

Maintaining physical distancing 

  • Our goal is to configure classrooms based on CDC guidance, including social distancing to the greatest extent possible. 

We will continue to closely monitor the number of COVID cases, public health data and recommendations or requirements from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
