Dearborn Detroit school pause
Two of Michigan’s biggest school districts are taking a post-spring break "break" from in-person learning.
It’s a precautionary measure they hope will stem the spread of COVID-19.
Dearborn Public Schools have been operating in hybrid mode since last month.
Superintendent Glenn Maleyko says that means two cohorts of students go to school twice a week, on alternating days.
So this extended break means just a couple more days of virtual learning.
“So it’s not really a major change, it’s just kind of a pause. I mean, we know and are hearing of a lot of people traveling.”
Maleyko encourages Dearborn families who traveled or gathered with family over spring break to get COVID tests.
Detroit schools are also going all-virtual for a week.
The district says that’s to give students and staff an extra week of social isolation.
