SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WXYZ) — Southfield Public Schools will start the 2020-21 school year online due to COVID-19, the district announced on Tuesday.

According to the district, they will offer remote learning at the start of the school year "due to a large number of COVID-19 cases in our region."

The school district was offering two options, remote learning which will begin the 2020-21 school year, or virtual option for families who don't feel comfortable having their kids in in-person learning.

"Students will receive rigorous online instruction and support," the district said.
