New schedule allows for safe return to in-person learning
This summer, our staff has been relying on health and safety experts as we plan for the start of our new year. Based on their input and the strongly recommended guidelines in the MI Safe Schools Return to School Roadmap, all students and staff will be required to wear face coverings at all times, unless medically unable, including on the bus. In addition, we have created a new schedule that allows for frequent disinfecting, smaller class sizes, social distancing, and the hands-on learning our students love!
Students will be part of smaller groups that will meet in-person two days per week. For the remaining three days instruction will take place remotely. Group A will meet in-person on Monday and Tuesday, and Group B will meet in-person on Thursday and Friday. There will be no students at the center on Wednesdays to allow for deep cleaning and sanitizing. This schedule will remain in place as long as our region is in Phase 4 or 5 of the MI Safe Start Plan. If our region enters Phase 3, we will move to a fully remote learning model.
Mid-August, parents of CTC students should receive a letter with additional details on the CTC's new schedule. Information on our virtual orientation will also be coming soon.
