The Detroit school district will return to remote instruction for the remainder of the week as the district closes school buildings ahead of a major snowstorm.
A day after the Detroit Public Schools Community District resumed in-person learning for its roughly 50,000 students, school officials informed the community Tuesday afternoon that buildings would be closed Wednesday through Friday.
The district plans to return to in-person school on Feb. 7. Detroit Superintendent Nikolai Vitti informed parents last week that the district had used all six of its forgiven days this school year for health and safety reasons. He said all future snow days will most likely be replaced with online learning days.
School districts across southeast Michigan are preparing for the winter storm, which could bring more than a foot of snow. Ann Arbor Public Schools announced that it would return to virtual learning on Wednesday in light of the predicted storm.
