Centreville Public Schools has decided to delay in-person learning by one week.
In an email to parents, superintendent Stephanie Lemmer stated the district’s board of education agreed to resume in-person learning Jan. 11, one week later than originally planned.
Lemmer said the district follows recommendations from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services regarding Young 5s through fifth grade. If the agency requires remote learning, then the district would adhere and impose that option.
Exceptions are made for students in special education or those without internet service at home.
Lemmer said the district is exercising caution due to the likelihood that some families were a part of large gatherings over the holidays. Delaying in-person learning a week will provide an opportunity for families to determine if they have come down with COVID.
The district also approved hiring Laura Wilson as a third, sixth-grade teacher at Centreville Elementary. Wilson previously worked for Vicksburg Community Schools.
