ONSTED, Mich. — Two positive cases in the Onsted school district have led to a decision to switch to remote learning beginning Friday, Nov. 13.

Citing an abundance of caution and the number of possible close contacts, Onsted Community Schools Superintendent Steve Head sent a letter to district families announcing the closure on Thursday. 

A high school student and an elementary teacher were the two positive cases. The number of possible close contacts was not disclosed, but contact tracing will begin immediately, according to the letter.

No one will be allowed into district buildings on Friday as all buildings will undergo deep cleaning.

In-person learning is expected to resume on Monday, Nov. 30. 

Updates on athletics and practices will be shared on Friday. 

Administrators and teachers will also be in contact with families on Friday regarding learning plans. Families are advised to check email on a daily basis and also consult the district's website.
