Lansing School District to Delay Start, Cancels Final Technology Distribution Day

A case of COVID-19 has forced the Lansing School District to delay the start of school.

The Lansing School District has delayed the first day of school to give officials time to deep clean buildings that may have been contaminated by a worker who tested positive for COVID-19. The buildings possibly contaminated normally house learning labs for students with working parents.

“We are sorry, but the Lansing School District is going to have to delay the beginning of online classes for a week and start school after the Labor Day holiday weekend,” Superintendent Sim Sinicropi said in a statement released by the district. “We had a contract employee delivering supplies to some of our schools test positive for COVID, so now we are going to deep clean all the buildings that employee was in and test many of our own staff for the virus.”

The district is also canceling the final day of a technology distribution event that was to be held today. Families that have not yet received the proper technology for the start of school can pick up a device at their child’s school office when school begins. For information, visit
