This is a thoughtful move from the school as the people in Michigan deal with the effects of COVID-19.

Michigan is currently embroiled in one of the nation’s fiercest outbreaks of the coronavirus. Per the Michigan.gov website, as of Thursday afternoon, there have been over 29,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state, and tragically 2,093 people have died due to complications stemming from the coronavirus.
