Saline Area Schools Making Plans To Offer In-Person Instruction In The Fall

May 18, 2020

Saline Area Schools says they’re confident they will offer in-person instruction in the fall.  

Superintendent Scot Graden says nothing is official yet, but they’re working with the Washtenaw County Health Department to make sure it’s safe for students to return to school in the fall.  The plan includes creating social distancing guidelines, establishing protocols for entering buildings, and implementing measures for contacts tracing.

Superintendent Graden:  If we did have a student or a staff member who tested positive, how would we go about making sure that we’re able to inform people who’ve been in contact?

The district remains unsure if large events like athletic activities will be allowed in the fall.
