Detroit Public Schools Suspends All In-person Classes Amid Rising COVID-19

Detroit Public School officials announced its plan to suspend in-person learning and switch back to remote learning. No surprises here, as the COVID 19's 2nd wave of cases arise here in Michigan.

“The District relied on science and the data to reopen schools for in-person learning this summer and fall and relied on the same criterium to decide that it was no longer safe for our students and employees to work in an in-person school environment. Without a vaccine, we will remain accountable to that 5-7 percent infection rate,” said Nikolai Vitti, Superintendent, DPSCD.

The temporary suspension of in-person classes will start Monday, November 16th through January, 11th. The district said, "if positive rates in the city improve then the District will consider reopening learning centers before that date."
