Effective Tuesday, June 22, 2021, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (“MDHHS”) has rescinded its emergency orders related to gatherings and face masks. MiOSHA also posted updated emergency rules today that replaced those from May 24, 2021. As a result of these actions, the Lenawee Intermediate School District (LISD) will no longer require any individual to wear a face mask while on LISD property or within an LISD vehicle regardless of vaccination status beginning on Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
Three incumbents were reelected to the LISD Board of Education at the biennial election meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 7, 2021. Carrie Dillon, James Hartley, and Kathryn Mohr, all current board members, ran unopposed and were unanimously reelected. Intermediate school district boards of education are elected by votes from local constituent school district boards of education. Mohr was reelected to serve a partial, two-year term, while Dillon and Hartley were reelected to full, six-year terms.

On Monday, May 10, 2021, all 12 Lenawee County public school district superintendents met with representatives from the Lenawee County Health Department (“Health Department” ) for the purpose of reviewing the mandatory quarantine of students who were in close-contact with a COVID-19 positive person while in school.
Since the update on Monday evening, additional staff members and students have been identified as confirmed and/or probable cases of COVID-19, further impacting LISD TECH Center operations. Due to the number of individuals and programs already in quarantine or connected to new contact tracing, all regular AM and PM LISD TECH Center programs, including those at the Center for a Sustainable Future, will be shifting to remote learning through Friday, February 12, 2021.
