"The decision to move to virtual learning was made to decrease the likelihood of spreading COVID-19, due to the school community reporting that three percent or more of the total school population has tested positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period," MPS said in a statement.
Students and families can expect additional outreach on instructions for virtual learning. Families should contact the school if they need technology assistance.
