Schools Reopening Plan – all Across the Board in the Lansing Area.
My kid’s school district has already revealed their back to school reopening plan for the 2020/2021 school year, but I’m watching to see what others are planning, doing, and I’m waiting diligently to hear as the last few, like Okemos and DeWitt, unveil their reopening plans.
Why? Somehow, in a time where certainty is rare and faint, it’s nice to actually have some footing as we hear how our community as a whole will be reopening this fall.
Spoiler alert: it’s all across the board…
Back to School • COVID Reopening Plan
First and foremost: We are sending HUGE virtual high fives and hugs to all of the teachers and administration out there!
You’re amazing. We are so grateful for you and what you’re doing in this city for our precious gems! No matter the COVID school reopening choices, we know they were hard to plan and create.
SCHOOL REOPENING PLANS
It may seem like there are just two options, virtual or in class, but the Lansing area school districts have dove in deep with ideas, plans, protocols, and prep for many options. Many have a unique spin on their back to school reopening plans.
It’s fitting as our schools in this area are all very different supporting and meeting all types of needs of the community.
