IPS returning to in-person learning for all grades on April 5

The Indianapolis Public Schools district will return to all in-person learning in its high schools and middle schools after spring break on April 5, the superintendent said.

The decision was made based on updated data and a recent discussion with the Marion County Health Department, Superintendent Aleesia Johnson said Friday.

Schools must be able to maintain 3 feet of social distancing, require masks, and ensure a strong contact tracing protocol, Johnson said.

Middle and high school students are now on a hybrid model to curb the spread of COVID-19.
In January, students in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade—except for sixth graders on a middle school schedule—returned to a full in-person schedules at school.
