Kingsley Area Schools Implement Virtual Learning for All Grades During Michigan’s ‘3-Week-Pause’
As of Wednesday High Schools across Michigan are doing online learning only.
This comes after a recent spike in coronavirus cases across the state, as well as the state’s health departments implementation of a ‘3-week-pause’.
Although online learning was only put in place for high school students and staff, Kingsley Area Schools had to make virtual learning mandatory for all K-12 students.
“ As we started into the contact tracing surrounding the football team, that coupled up with a middle school teacher testing positive we had an extraordinary amount of staff that were quarantined,” said Superintendent Keith Smith.
Smith says, it was almost impossible to continue in person learning for elementary and middle school students because of the lack of staff.
