As a result of coronavirus cases being confirmed in Michigan, the Washtenaw Intermediate School District is considering the option of offering online classes.  WEMU's Jorge Avellan has the story.

WISD says they're in close contact with the Washtenaw County Health Department to help them make a decision on whether schools should close.  Superintendent Scott Menzel says attendance has started to decline.

“We are particularly concerned for many of our students who are medically fragile, and they would be in an at-risk category,” Menzel says.

Menzel adds he's also been in contact with other superintendents in Washtenaw County to figure out a plan on how they all would like to move forward.
