Bloomfield Hills Schools
As we progress toward the start of our 2020-2021 school year, I wanted to share a recent development with you. Last night, I presented the Board of Education with our COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan, as required by Governor Whitmer. The Board voted to adopt the plans as presented and approved them to be sent to the state. Following the approval of our COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan, the Board had a lengthy discussion about our return to school, grappling with the complexities of this complicated time. Ultimately, out of an abundance of caution, the Board voted to start the school year remotely.
Thank you for your generous support of Bloomfield Hills Schools at the polls yesterday. Seeing our community come together in support of all learners is heartwarming and illustrates what an extraordinary place this is to work, learn, and grow!
We remain committed to providing the rigorous education our students and families expect from Bloomfield Hills Schools, while also ensuring families have the ability to choose the learning setting that is right for their family. The choice of education setting for the fall is a very personal one as families are each grappling with unique challenges and circumstances.
Bloomfield VIRTUAL provides an equitable, caring, and safe learning environment where students are encouraged to be intellectually curious and academically ambitious. Leveraging the power of technology and community, Bloomfield VIRTUAL learning promotes student agency for all learners to achieve their highest aspirations.
We are pleased to share with you today the Bloomfield VIRTUAL Handbook and Catalog, which contains:
- Virtual Campus Overviews and Information

Bloomfield Hills High School cancelled their bandcamp practice on July 30, 2020 out of an abundance of caution after two students indicated signs of illness.
