Reopening 2020-21

Holt Public Schools is committed to offering a robust and innovative public education. Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus, HPS has determined it is in the best interest of our students, staff, and community to begin the year remotely. We will continually monitor the health of our community and surrounding areas as we work toward reopening face-to-face. Below you will find the guidelines we have developed for face-to-face as well as remote learning, as required by the Governor’s Office. We will provide new information to our community as it develops. Please check back to this space for more information. 

 

Holt Public Schools will share updates received from the Ingham County Health Department (ICHD) and Barry-Eaton District Health Department (B-EDHD) on this COVID-19 Dashboard. As required by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, effective October 12.

Holt Public Schools will work with the Ingham County Health Department (ICHD) and Barry-Eaton Health Department (B-EDHD) to receive and share data regarding school associated cases. The ICHD & B-EDHD determines what is a probable or confirmed case. According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), a “school associated case” means a case of probable or confirmed COVID-19 amongst students, teachers, staff members, coaches, volunteers or any other person who was present on school property or at a school function under circumstances that may result in the transmission or contraction of COVID-19 during their infectious period. As directed by the MDHHS, the ICHD and B-EDHD must share probable or confirmed cases with schools within 24 hours. Schools will then post the information received in a public place within 24 hours of notification from the health department.

We will continue to work with Ingham County Health Department and Barry-Eaton District Health Department to ensure the safety of our learning community.
