COVID-19 cases cause Father Gabriel Richard High School to switch to online learning

ANN ARBOR, MI – Ann Arbor Father Gabriel Richard High School has suspended in-person learning due to a number of COVID-19 cases in students.

The Catholic high school’s administration announced it would transition to its Irish Online learning program beginning Wednesday, Oct. 7, at the recommendation of the Washtenaw County Health Department. The school also has suspended all extracurricular and athletic activities.

In a statement, Father Gabriel Richard administrators said much of the spread of COVID-19 cases among students is believed to be attributed to social gatherings outside of school.

“We have not had confirmation of spread occurring during the school day, so we feel confident that the measures we have in place are working,” administrators said in a statement. “We strongly urge all students to be mindful of the impact of their personal actions outside of school upon the whole school community.”
