Return to School

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our schools and our community, Eastpointe Community Schools is working to develop plans to keep students safe and offer families options for the 2020-21 school year. 

Virtual Instruction 

For questions related to Google Classroom or virtual learning schedules, please contact your child's building or teacher.

Students enrolled in virtual preschool and elementary (grades Pre-K-5) can switch to face-to-face instruction ONLY at the end of a marking period (November, January, and March). Students in middle school and high school (grades 6-12) can switch ONLY at the semester break in January.

For help logging into remote learning, please fill out this form.

Face-to-Face/Hybrid Instruction

Face-to-face students will attend five days a week starting Monday, September 21. The current four-hour schedule will continue until further notice.  

We will begin face-to-face learning for 4 hours with students in-person each day with the expectation of additional at-home learning. Start and end times have been adjusted to give transportation more time to clean and sanitize buses between routes:

High School/Middle School (Grades 6-12): 7:10am to 11:10am
Upper Elementary (3-5): 7:50am to 11:50am
Lower Elementary (K-2): 8:30am to 12:30pm

Safety Precautions

For students who attend in-person, we will be following all of the guidelines laid out in the MI Safe Schools: Return to School Roadmap, including additional sanitizing and distancing measures, as well as the use of personal protective equipment.

Based on this roadmap,  we have created this document for parents, which summarizes what parents can expect from our schools based on which phase of the MI Safe Start Plan our region is in. For more detailed information, parents and community members can view our full Preparedness and Response Plan, which was developed with the guidance of the Macomb County Health Department.
