In a meeting last night, the school board voted to transition back to in-person classes.

On Wednesday night, the school board of Flint Community Schools took a vote on returning to in-person classes. The results of the vote were five members voting yes to return to in-person classes with only one member voting against it.

We need to make our decision based on what is best for our kids and the parents and right now they are ready to go to school...said school board member Diana Wright.

Moving forward, students in self-contained classrooms, the Early Childhood Developmental Delay (ECDD,) and Pre-K through third grade will return to in-person classes on Monday, March 15th. Students in fourth through twelfth grade will return on Monday, March 22nd.

Upon return to in-person classes, parents can expect the schedule to look something like this:

  • Monday and Tuesday - Students with last names starting with letters A-L.
  • Thursday and Friday - Students with last names starting with letters M-Z.
  • Students will not attend in-person classes on Wednesdays.

I am proud to share that the Flint Community Schools district is now offering an in-person learning option for families who have elected to participate. It will include two days of in-person learning per week. Beginning Monday, March 15, we will offer the option of in-person learning for our LSS scholars, ECDD scholars and scholars in Pre-K through third grade. Scholars in fourth grade through 12th grade will have the option of returning to in-person learning beginning Monday, March 22. We appreciate our parents and families, who have been incredibly patient and understanding as we continue to put the safety of our school community first...said Flint Community Schools Superintendent Anita Steward.
