• Online Learning Extension

    Posted by Nia Adams on 1/12/2022 4:30:00 PM

    Good Afternoon DPSCD Staff, Families, and Students,

    Please be advised that districtwide online learning will continue for all students through January 24th or at the very latest, January 31st. Although the city’s infection rate has improved it is still in the mid-30s. Our return to in person learning will include required employee COVID testing. Those plans will be shared prior to our return. The current staffing requirements for in person or remote work will remain the same unless modifications are made and shared in the future. Please be reminded that students must have a consent to COVID test on file by January 31st or they will be transferred to the district’s virtual school.

    As a reminder, Grab and Go meals will continue to be served at each school Monday and Thursday from 9am-1pm. If you need technology support during online learning you can call 1-313-240-4377 or visit techsupport.detroitk12.org.

    Lastly, if you need academic help or mental health support please call the Homework or Mental Health Hotlines for support by dialing 833-466-3978.

  • Online Learning January 6th-Janurary 14th

    Posted by Nia Adams on 1/4/2022 10:00:00 PM

    Good Evening DPSCD Families,

    Please be advised that the district will temporarily shift to online learning for all students effective this Thursday, January 6th—Friday, January 14th. Unfortunately, the city’s infection rate continues to climb and now has exceeded 40% for a seven-day average. Once the city’s infection rate decreases to more normal levels, then we will resume in person learning. Please note that online learning will follow the regular school’s bell schedule per state requirements.

    For eligible students, laptops can be picked up at your child’s school this Thursday (12pm-4pm) or Friday (9am-4pm) or next week on Monday or Tuesday (both days 9am-4pm). All laptops will need to be returned when in person learning restarts. IT hotlines and Hubs will open next week for family and student support. In addition, Grab and Go meals will be provided next week on Mondays and Thursdays. More information about IT support and meals will be provided.


    Please expect to receive more information about the shift to online learning from your child’s school.

  • Online Learning Fridays

    Posted by Nia Adams on 11/17/2021 12:30:00 PM

    Hello DPSCD Families,

    In order to provide staff and students with mental health relief and time to more thoroughly clean schools due to rising COVID rates, December 3rd, December 10th, and December 17th (all Fridays) will be online learning days for all students across the district. We will follow the regular school schedule on these online learning days. All students are expected to log on to Teams to join their classmates during each class period for all three days.

    Schools will provide instruction on how a student can receive a learning device if one has not been provided already. As always, please check your student’s district email for more details.

    With the recent vaccine approval for children ages 5 to 11, the district will move forward with greater consideration of vaccine requirements for employees and students. The vaccine is the best way to ensure students can attend school daily and return home from school without passing COVID onto their families.
