Health and Wellness
On Thursday, April 2, Governor Whitmer issued an Executive Order with the instruction for schools end in-person instruction for the rest of the 2019-20 school year. The order also instructs districts to transition to online learning.
We are fortunate that our district leaders and teachers have fully embraced Cloud Learning since mid-March. We will continue to implement new instruction and coursework moving forward.
The district has put together a combined list of information resources and videos from the local, state, national, and international level. Please visit the link below to review and learn more.
Share accurate information
Always share accurate information about a virus and its spread. It is important to remember that stigma and discrimination occur when people associate an infectious disease, such as COVID-19, with a population or nationality. COVID-19 does not target people from specific populations, ethnicities or racial background. Suspected discrimination can be reported to the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Community Awareness Information
Rest assured, the West Bloomfield School District continues to work closely with and follow guidance from the Oakland County Health Division, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The best prevention for COVID-19, and any other virus, such as the cold or flu, is to:
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
If you are sick, please stay home and avoid contact with others.
