HAMTRAMCK – Hamtramck Public Schools Superintendent Jaleelah Ahmed issued the following message on Friday regarding a delay in bringing students and staff back to in-person school activities:
At Hamtramck Public Schools, the safety and well-being of our students, families and staff are our primary concern. We continue to work closely with the Wayne County Public Health Division to determine next steps.
Today, it was determined that we will need to delay the return to in-person learning in response to the increased travel and influx of COVID-19 variants. Thus, students in grades K-6 will be learning remotely the week of April 5. The return to in-person learning date for students in grades K-6 has now been pushed to the week of April 12. Grades 7-12 can still expect to return to in-person learning the week of April 19.
We believe it is important to continue to respond to the changing pandemic, and to always put the safety of our school community first. We remain committed to creating the safest learning environment possible for our children.
