LANSING, Mich. — Lansing schools will bring students for in-person classes starting March 22.

School board President Gabrielle Lawrence said the plan, approved Thursday, will allow students to return to school in phases. Younger students will be allowed to return to school first, then they will welcome older students.

The plan calls for a hybrid model. Students will work online in the mornings on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. During the afternoon on those days, students will have the option to attend classes in person.

Wednesdays will be strictly online learning. The district will use Wednesdays as a “deep cleaning day.”

“If families choose to enroll in this hybrid plan, kids can receive bus transportation to go to the schools that will be open in the district,” Lawrence said.

While in the building, the district will minimize contact. Masks will be required and there will be no more moving from classroom to classroom. Lawrence said students will be in cohorts.

She said she believes this change is a step in the right direction for students.

The district is still in the process of installing $1.5. million worth of air cleaning units in classrooms.
