TPS students to continue distance learning
Tecumseh Public Schools (TPS) has announced that all students will remain on the distance learning model until Wednesday, Dec. 9 as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Lenawee County. The district has also had a small amount of positive cases among staff members, and other staff members have been exposed to someone who has the disease and are in quarantine.
Originally, K-8 students were expected to resume full time in-person learning on November 30.
Right now, the current restrictions for high school in-person learning, set forth by the state health department, ends on December 8, however, all students will remain on virtual learning on Wednesday, Dec. 9 to give teachers and staff time to prepare for in-person learning again. The high school will resume the hybrid learning plan on December 10.
Tecumseh Virtual Academy students will not be impacted by this change, nor are childcare and full day preschool.
As the distance learning model continues, TPS Food Service has added a second pick-up location. Families whose last names begin with A through M will pick up at the high school shipping and receiving dock, entering off Brown Street and following the signage for food pick-up. Families whose last name begins with N through Z will pick up in the parent drop-off area at Compass Learning Center. Pick-up time will be every Tuesday from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Parents must email email@example.com to sign up for meal pick-up.
