School City Of Mishawaka Will Return Secondary Students To Full-Time In-Person Learning

School City of Mishawaka

As St. Joseph County’s COVID-19 metrics continue to improve, another local school district has decided to send some students back to the classroom full-time.


The School City of Mishawaka voted on Wednesday to begin a phased reopening for middle and high school students.


According to information released by the school, beginning Feb. 25, students grades 7-12 will attend in-person class four days a week, with Wednesdays as a virtual learning day.


After spring break in April, middle and high schoolers will be back to a full five-day week of in-person learning.


Students who opted for virtual learning this semester can choose to continue with e-learning or switch to in-person classes.


Mishawaka’s elementary schools will continue their current schedule of in-person learning five days a week. The decision to reopen secondary schools is based on St. Joseph County maintaining its current improved COVID-19 status through Feb. 24.
