Joint Statement From MASB, MASA, MAISA, MASSP Regarding Continuation of Stay Home, Stay Safe Order

While we understand that the extension of the Stay Home, Stay Safe order will undoubtedly create hardships for many Michiganders, we agree that the health and safety of residents should remain paramount. Doing everything we can now based on best practices and scientific and medical advice to slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 will allow our students, staff and administrators to look forward to a new school year in the fall with face-to-face instruction and extracurricular activities.

Our organizations continue to stand ready to assist our members in any way necessary during these difficult circumstances, and we recognize that each district is working to find ways to support students and advance distance learning to the greatest extent possible. We are confident all school districts are doing what they can to make sure their students and families are supported and not alone in this unique time.
