Carman-Ainsworth Schools have moved back to virtual learning.

As of today, Tuesday, April 6th, Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools have taken a step back from face-to-face learning. In a post on Facebook last night, the school district announced the switch back to virtual learning for students.

Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in Genesee County and Governor Whitmer's recommendation encouraging schools to be virtual, Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools will switch to remote learning effective tomorrow, April 6, 2021. This decision is made to mitigate further spread of COVID-19...the Facebook post read. 

In the future, Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools are planning to return on Monday, April 19th, 2021 for hybrid face-to-face learning for all grades. As for now, the school schedule will follow their 2020-2021 Return to School Preparedness Plan with classes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday will remain a half-day. Classes will run from 8 am until 3 pm.

For those students and families in need, food distribution will continue from 11 am until 1 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays at all of the Carman-Ainsworth school buildings, with the exception of The Learning Community and Woodland School. There will also be an evening pick up at the middle school on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm.

Now that we are seeing schools across Michigan move back to virtual for a couple of weeks, I would imagine that more will follow suit. As a parent, this is tough to watch. These kids are being taken on an emotional roller coaster and it is a struggle for them. Doesn't matter what "side you are on," I don't care about that. I'm worried about the kids.
