TCAPS High School and Middle School Students To Continue Virtual Learning Next Week
Traverse City Area Public Schools says their middle school and high school students will continue learning virtually until April 16th.
The TCAPS Board of Education held a special meeting Saturday and made the decision to continue virtual learning.
This comes after the district went into a four day pause last week.
The school district states that high school and middle school students will return to in-person learning on April 19th.
Furthermore, they say all TCAPS elementary school students will continue in-person learning.
On the other hand, TCAPS says seventh grade students enrolled in Montessori’s Adolescent Community will also continue to learn remotely through April 16th, and 6th graders will resume in-person learning as they are part of the school’s elementary program.
Students in the MICI and PASS programs will learn virtually on Monday, April 12th and return to in-person learning on Tuesday, April 13th.
Northwest Education Services Career Tech Center will continue with in-person learning, and shuttle busses from the high schools will be available to students.
Athletics including LEAP and co-curricular activities are allowed to continue. Sports will have mandated testing through the MHSAA, and co-curriculars will have optional testing.
Families are being asked to screen students each morning before they arrive at school. If a student shows any mild symptoms of COVID-19 or are waiting on test results, they are asked to stay at home.
TCAPS says they will continue to implement measures to prevent the spread of the virus, including wearing masks and social distancing.
