Class sizes will be smaller

CLARKSTON, Mich. – With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still having a big impact in the Metro Detroit community, some school districts are pushing ahead. They’re making a gradual return to in-person learning.

The Clarkston school district is slowly welcoming students back to school. It’s the latest district rolling into face-to-face learning after a virtual start. The district of 7,200 students and 400 teachers has an intricate schedule that has the youngest coming back first.
