Health & Safety

The health and safety of our students, staff, and families is our highest priority. Ferndale School District is closely monitoring this situation and is in frequent contact with public health authorities. As we are not experts in this area, we rely on the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for information and guidance.

Updated Guidance 2022-2023

Please note that these new COVID-19 protocols were developed following the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Oakland County Health Department (OCHD). Requirements may change as conditions evolve – such changes could include the presence of a new variant that increases the risk to the public, or an increased number of cases that strains the healthcare system. A high number of cases in a specific classroom or school building could also alter requirements on those directly impacted.
