NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - Negaunee Middle and High School students begin online learning Monday.

A message to parents Sunday night says the decision to suspend in-person classes came after discussions between administrators, the Marquette County Health Department and school board members.

Negaunee Public Schools' website shows five active cases in the district right now. Lakeview Elementary remains open.

The middle and high schools are scheduled to be online through October 30. More details can be found on the NPS website. Superintendent Dan Skewis said this was the best decision for everyone.

“We realized there were several students who would need to quarantine based off of contacts," Skewis said. "Whether it was an athletic team or school buses or different things like that.”

All NPS athletic events scheduled through October 30 have been canceled. The decision affected high school football player Preston Toutant.

“It hurts, especially since I’m a senior and we worked so hard since March just doing Zoom workouts,” Toutant said.

For school meals, if you are a Negaunee High School student, you may pick up breakfast and lunch meals from the main entrance of the high school from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Multiple days can be picked up at one time.

If you are a middle school student, you may pick up breakfast and lunch meals from the gym lobby from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Multiple days can be picked up at one time.

Meals will be free for all students. For any questions regarding meals, please contact Calvin Attwell at calvin.attwell@negauneeschools.org or 906-475-7803 ext. 110.
