School has been canceled in two Michigan school districts as hundreds of teachers are expected to call in sick Tuesday to join right-to-work demonstrations in Lansing.
Yes, it’s snowing outside, but it’s mainly just slushy and wet roads to deal with. In spite of that, more than 200 area schools decided their doors would be closed Friday. Why is that?
Winter weather is hitting southeast Michigan Friday morning and as weather forecasters predicted, the further north you go the more snow you will see.
“This is a critically important time in the history of Detroit Public Schools and for our city,” said Detroit Public Schools Emergency Manager Roy Roberts.
Authorities say a strain of norovirus was responsible for sickening more than 200 students in the Mount Pleasant School District earlier this month.
It’s a slippery drive in much of northern Oakland County today, as ice covers many of the gravel roads in that area. As a result, dozens of schools are closed on Monday.
The Mount Pleasant School District has cancelled classes for the rest of the week after a suspected norovirus sickened about 200 students.
District administrators say there is low voltage at Cody, Dixon, Henderson and Mann schools.
The Detroit Public Schools plans to hold classes as scheduled at most schools following power outages that caused early dismissals across the district.
The city of Monroe is under a boil water advisory and, as a result, Monroe Public Schools is cancelling classes on Thursday.
