Alpena High School to resume hybrid instruction

ALPENA, Mich.– Staffing levels are back to normal at Alpena High School, allowing hybrid education to resume.

District Health Department #4 has reviewed test results for probable COVID–19 cases at the school. Based on its review, the department advised to release quarantine on recent probable cases.

In other words, people who were in contact with only probable cases no longer have to self-quarantine, which releases multiple full-time and substitute instructors.

This means that staffing levels at the school are back to normal, and classes will resume in the hybrid manner starting Monday, October 26.

The school had switched to fully–online education on Thursday because too much of the staff was in quarantine to maintain in-person instruction.

However, those who were in close contact with confirmed COVID–19 cases will need to continue their 14–day quarantine for the full duration.
