FCS - Return to School Post Holidays

 

January 2, 2022

Dear Flint Community Schools Families,

Due to the rise in COVID-19 numbers across Genesee County and out of an abundance of caution all schools in the Flint Community Schools district will be closed to scholars on Monday, January 3rd and Tuesday, January 4th. We will be shifting to remote distance learning Wednesday through Friday – with scholars expected to participate in their regular school schedule online. Our teachers will be reporting to school on Monday and Tuesday to prepare for distance learning classes later in the week to ensure a smooth transition to remote learning for our scholars.

I apologize for the late notice and any inconvenience this causes our families, but we had hoped to be able to return for in-person learning after the holiday break. Unfortunately, with the rising number of cases across the County, we believe it is in the best interest of our school community to delay the return to in-person learning at this time. We will continue to monitor the number of cases and work with local health officials to determine when it is safe to welcome our scholars back for in-person learning.  

At Flint Community Schools, the safety and well-being of our scholars is and will always be our first priority. If there are questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s principal at the school.

Thank you for your continued commitment to Flint Community Schools and for serving as our partner in your child’s education.

Sincerely,

Kevelin Jones

Superintendent

Flint Community Schools
