Ishpeming’s middle and high schools move to distance learning after COVID positives

ISHPEMING — Two of Ishpeming’s schools are shifting gears.

Ishpeming’s middle and high school is moving to distance learning until November 2nd, after two students tested positive for COVID–19.

After conducting contact tracing, the schools felt it was in the best interest to take the safest approach.

“Looking at the number of students that are out right now, because they’re either on quarantine or isolation with symptoms or exposure, we decided to take a conservative approach and make a decision to close the middle school and high school, just to prevent any further exposure during this time,” said superintendent Carrie Meyer.

Ishpeming’s food service program will continue serving meals to students through the Pearl Street entrance.
