Some schools in Genesee County welcomed all students to class this week

GENESEE COUNTY, MI – Some schools in Genesee County have welcomed all students back to class this week.

Districts that resumed in-person learning on Monday, Jan. 4 include Davison Community Schools, Goodrich Area Schools and Clio Area Schools.

While some elementary and middle schools were open in December, most high schools remained closed following an order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced on November 15 that in-person learning in middle and high schools must interrupt face-to-face classes for three weeks, starting Wednesday, November 18.

Whitmer later extended the partial shutdown until December 20, when many schools are closed for the holidays.

Schools in the Clio area have not had to close this year due to COVID-19 due to “his exceptional actions by staff and parents,” Superintendent Fletcher Spears wrote in a Jan. 2 letter.

The district decided to bring all the students back as soon as possible.

“We need to keep our schools open for the benefit of our students,” Spears wrote. “Please be sure to closely monitor your student’s health. Temperatures should be taken daily before leaving for school. We want to ensure the good health of all our students and staff and we want to keep all of our buildings open and in good working order. “

The Goodrich Area Schools School Board voted this month to send all students back to class. On January 4, the day school was due to resume after his vacation.

Genesee County superintendents continue to meet weekly with the local health department, Goodrich Area Schools Superintendent Wayne Wright wrote in a Dec. 28 letter.

“I want to thank you for the success of the first half of our school year,” Wright wrote. “In these difficult times, our staff are committed to providing our students, whether face-to-face, virtual or remote, with excellent training. I thank our students for their commitment to learning and I thank our parents for their commitment to supporting their students and our staff.
