Children in the Copper Country could return to school this fall – if there’s no uptick in COVID-19 cases.
As promised, Governor Gretchen Whitmer rolled out the “MI Safe Schools Road Map” yesterday.
The 63-page document sets out the structure and guidelines for the reopening of K-12 schools…
The plan was compiled by the Return to School Advisory Council and the COVID-19 Task Force on Education, along with a long list of other contributors.
It does not assure that all schools will reopen for face-to-face instruction. That will depend on the level of COVID-19 infection in specific regions later this summer.
If the Upper Peninsula remains in COVID Recovery Stage Five, children could return, with strong recommendations that masks be worn, distance be maintained as much as possible, and other sanitary conditions be observed.
Athletic events could be held, with limited spectators. See the full report here.
