GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Public Schools is planning to release their back to school plan on Monday.

The plan could include in- person classes, virtual or a mixture of both.

The district says its working hard on securing PPE products and technology needed for their students.

Face coverings, sanitizing hands and surfaces, physical distancing, and health screenings will also be part of the plan.

GRPS says it's also looking into one-to-one technology devices for all students, internet access and transportation.

At this point the district has not said which of the three plans they will implement on the first day of school which is set for Aug. 25.

GRPS says it will also offer 100% virtual options for families who don't feel comfortable with in-person schooling.

The district will be hosting a virtual meeting for parents, as well as release its plan and share the results from a parent survey at 2:30 p.m. on Monday.
