Our Pandemic Response Plan has been and remains an ever-evolving document. As the ongoing pandemic continues to morph and change, so too do our practices for prioritizing in-person instruction.
Cranbrook Schools remains steadfast in our fundamental objective: the prioritization of robust in-person instruction and activities at all divisions and grade levels, and a Plan that will allow us to return to as typical an in-person instructional day as possible while simultaneously keeping the entire Schools community safe and well-cared-for. Our aim is to maintain as many students learning consistently in school as possible throughout the 2021-2022 academic year.
To this end, we continue to carefully monitor information and guidance published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA), as well as professional medical associations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). We will also continue to work this year in direct concert with the Oakland County Health Division, the agency under whose umbrella Cranbrook and all schools in our local area fall when it comes to public health matters.
Please note that the protocols outlined here are the result of amendments and modifications to these practices as the situation has evolved and as new information has become available. If and when local or regional circumstances or public health guidance change, we will always alert the community to modifications to our health-related mitigation practices and policies. We look forward returning, over time, to as much routine in-person programming and as many routine, in-person practices as possible for all grade levels that make up the Cranbrook Schools.
