Ludington school board to consider moving to remote learning temporarily. 

By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.

LUDINGTON — The Ludington Area School District Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Monday, April 13 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the possibility to switching from in-person classes to remote classes effective Tuesday, April 13 through Monday, April 19. The board is expected to review recent increases in COVID-19 case counts among students and staff from April 5-9. 

District Health Department #10 medical director Dr. Jennifer Morse is recommending the district move grades pre-kindergarten through 12 to remote learning. 

The board will then review COVID-19 case counts and impacted staffing levels at its regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, April 19. If case counts and impacted staffing levels improve, it may be recommended to return to in-person learning on Tuesday, April 20. 

More details from the district on why the board is considering this option can be found here.

The district’s classes had already been scheduled to be cancelled on Monday, April 12, along with Friday, April 9.
