What should my child be doing during this time in terms of academics?

While South Redford Public Schools are closed following Governor Whitmer’s announcement, there are many opportunities for students to continue their learning at home. South Redford School District is providing resources for students to exercise their minds and stay sharp while they are out of school. These resources are NOT required for students and participation will not impact their grades.  


You will find daily schedules/routines, tips for staying healthy, and educational resources tailored to specific grade levels.  We have included tools to help you explain to your child(ren) why they cannot return to school or may be prohibited from their normal activities.


Here is the link to elementary and secondary learning resources as well as information about available internet options:

In order to further support our families, we are providing Chromebooks to those students who do not have an Internet-accessible device.
