Today (Thursday, April 2), Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-35, which will close all school facilities in Michigan for the remainder of this school year as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. This means that all Clarkston Community Schools, offices, and campuses will remain closed until further notice. For everyone's safety, we are asking that families also refrain from using our outdoor facilities at this time.
No student in Clarkston will go hungry during the school closure. Families may continue to pick up free "Grab & Go" meals at three of our school locations as well as four community distribution points on Tuesdays and Fridays. For locations and times, please visit our Free Meal Services Information page.
Clarkston Community Schools students will begin virtual at-home learning with teachers on Monday, April 6 as previously planned. Superintendent Shawn Ryan will share further information in a communication to staff and families tomorrow (Friday, April 3). In the meantime, please see www.clarkston.k12.mi.us/covid-19 to read more about the district's response to the current health crisis.
