The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services epidemic order issued on December 7 includes a 12-day extension of the "pause" in junior high and high school sports through December 20. The MHSAA is charting out another plan for finishing fall and restarting winter sports and we will notify our families of the results as soon as practical.
The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services in an epidemic order issued on December 7, extended the Gatherings and Face Mask Order an additional 12 days, effective December 9. This means that high school students will remain in remote learning until our Holiday Break, which begins December 21, and return to in-person learning with K-8 students after the break on January 4. We will notify parents of any changes that may occur.
