Ludington Schools considering canceling classes Friday, Monday. 

LUDINGTON — Ludington Area School District officials are considering options as COVID-19 cases have increased throughout the district’s buildings. 

According to the district’s COVID-19 Communication, posted on the school’s website, district officials are considering canceling school on Friday, April 9 and Monday, April 12. The two days would count toward the district’s allowable forgiven days of instructions, typically used as snow days. 

Current school-related cases, as of Wednesday, April 7, were: 

  • Pere Marquette Early Childhood Center: One COVID-19 positive student with fivestudents quarantined as close contacts to this positive student; Two COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined students (household contact); One staff member that must be absent to care for COVID-19 impacted child.
  • Franklin Elementary School: Zero COVID-19 positive cases; zero COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined cases.
  • Lakeview Elementary School: Zero COVID-19 positive cases; one COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined student (household contact).
  • Foster School: One COVID-19 positive case; three COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined students (household contact).
  • O.J. DeJonge Middle School: One COVID-19 positive student with 28 students quarantined as close contacts to this positive student; four  COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined students (household contact); one  COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined staff member; two students received positive antigen tests associated with a youth recreation sport. This may lead to an additional 43 students being quarantined as close contacts if the antigen tests are confirmed positive.
  • Ludington High School: Two COVID-19 positive students; 12 COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined students (household contact); eight COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined students that were members of the golf team (close contacts to one of the positive students listed above); one COVID-19 positive close contact quarantined staff member.
  • Transportation: One COVID-19 positive bus driver. Due to a bus driver shortage, the district has temporarily taken a bus out of service and has added students to three bus routes to be able to safely transport students to and from school. We expect additional bus drivers to be impacted.
