Due to the rapid rise in the COVID-19 infection rate in Detroit, all classes will be held online beginning on Monday, November 16., the Detroit Public Schools Community District reported.
The suspension of face-to-face learning will continue until January 11. If positive rates in the city improve then the district will consider reopening learning centers before that date.
The city infection rate was nearly 5 percent last week and has been increasing this week, the district noted.
As a courtesy to families, learning centers can be used on Monday if adjustments to childcare could not be made over the weekend.
