As of April 2, 2020, all school buildings in the state of Michigan have been closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Eastpointe Community Schools is working to develop plans to continue to provide both educational and food services to students over this unprecedented closure.This is a very fluid situation, and we will continue to keep you updated as information becomes available or changes.

April 2, 2020 Closure Update
Today, April 2, 2020, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer closed all Michigan schools for the rest of the school year in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Our buildings will be closed, but our students’ educations and essential district services will continue. We will continue to provide grab-and-go meals for students, as well as educational materials for remote learning at all grade levels. We know parents and students have many questions, and we are working to find the answers to those questions as quickly as we can.
We are sad to lose the rest of this time with our Eastpointe Community Schools students, but we understand that this is necessary to protect the health and safety of our families and community. Stay home, stay safe, and we're looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

March 23, 2020 Update
Last week, Eastpointe Community Schools distributed more than 4,000 breakfasts and 4,000 lunches to our students! With the governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order that was issued today, we want to assure our Eastpointe families that continuing student food distribution is an essential service that we plan to continue to provide for our students. Much like a trip to the grocery store or pharmacy, families can continue to make these brief trips out of their homes for food.
We will continue to provide these grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. However, we will be consolidating our sites to better use our staff, based on turnout from this past week. Starting Wednesday, food will be distributed from Bellview, Crescentwood, Eastpointe High School, Eastpointe Middle School, and Pleasantview. Please remember that you can visit ANY school site to pick up meals, not just the one your child attends. As always, details can be found on our website at eastpointeschools.org/coronavirus/food-services.
March 19, 2020 Update
As information continues to change rapidly at this time, we want to remind our families and the Eastpointe community at large that the only official sources of information related to Eastpointe Community Schools are:
- This website
- Our district Facebook page: facebook.com/EastpointeCommunitySchools
- Robocalls and emails from the district office OR your child's school
It is ESSENTIAL in this time of uncertainty that our families know where to find accurate information. We are providing updated and accurate information to our families as quickly as we can and will continue to do so on these platforms.
March 17, 2020 Update
We have heard questions from some parents about how school work will be distributed during this extended closure. Each building has developed its own plans for their students, so your child’s teacher or other building staff member is always the best one to contact about plans for your child’s class.
Each building’s plan for distributing materials this week can be found on our Remote Learning website.
Please note that ALL student Google Classroom passwords have been reset to minimize confusion over forgotten passwords. Secondary students using Google Classroom should be receiving a letter with new log-in information within the next day or two.
Families who need help accessing their Pandemic EBT benefits for emergency food needs should call the Michigan Dept. of Health and Human Services hotline at 1-833-905-0028.
