Detroit Public Schools Community District is going remote for three days in December and closed schools for an extra two days before Thanksgiving. The closures help show that students and educators are under duress as COVID outbreaks and staff shortages pile on top of nearly two years of virtual learning, quarantines, masking battles and COVID fears.
