COVID-19 Resources and Updates and the Washtenaw I S D Logo

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and under Executive Order by Governor Whitmer, all WISD offices are currently closed to the public.

Thank you to our WISD community for your continued patience and understanding as WISD administration continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation as it evolves. Like all of you, we are concerned about the impact it will have on the health and safety of our students, families, staff, and broader community.

Updated 2020-21 WISD School Year for Student Programs:

  • August 31-September 4: WISD staff will connect with each family to discuss individualized plans for students and families and review any needs for the school year, such as technology.
  • September 8: Fully virtual instruction will begin, which will include re-engaging students and families, reviewing protocols, and establishing new structures and routines.
  • September 21: Virtual instruction continues, but if it is safe to do so, individualized face-to-face programming may begin for a small number of low-risk students or families with low-risk staff and in low-risk spaces.
  • September 28: WISD will begin re-evaluating virtual and individualized programming, impact, and results, as well as current COVID-19 data and research, to make adjustments.


Updated 2020-21 Early Childhood Program Year:

  • Phase 4: WISD staff will continue connecting with families virtually to discuss individualized plans for children and families and to review any ongoing needs, such as technology. Fully virtual home visits will continue, which will include engaging children and families, reviewing protocols, and working toward your child's and family's outcomes. When required, appropriate accommodations will be provided.
  • Phase 5: When it is safe to do so, a transition to in-person services may begin in mutually agreed upon safe spaces. During Phase 5, families may continue with virtual home visits.
  • Phase 6: Home visiting will transition to in-person services with virtual services as appropriate. 
  • Playgroups: Playgroups will continue virtually during Phases 4 and 5, and will transition to in-person playgroups during Phase 6.
