GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — All Kelloggsville Public Schools buildings will close at the end of the day Tuesday as the district moves to all-virtual learning due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the area.

There has also been an increase in the number of students and staff showing symptoms of the virus, according to a letter sent to families.

Health department guidelines require the district to take precautions by having affected individuals quarantine and closing the school.

The district plans to reopen buildings Nov. 30.

“We will continue to partner with the health department and will follow their guidelines and requirements,” Superintendent Samuel Wright said in the letter. “We are confident that closing the district will result in containing the spread of COVID-19 and that our students will be able to return to a very safe learning environment on Monday 30 November 2020.”
