For Current COVID-19 Information
With the increased attention toward the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), It is important for our ZPS community to have access to accurate and timely information about this health pandemic.
A dashboard of ZPS COVID-19 confirmed cases and quarantined is available on the district website.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services website is a useful tool for understanding the virus. The site provides details specific to the State of Michigan, how the virus is spread, who is at risk, and how to protect yourself from the virus. Additionally, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has developed a Frequently Asked Questions document and has other timely information available online.
Zeeland Public Schools will continue to monitor COVID-19 and will work under the guidance of The Michigan Department of Health and in conjunction with area schools to ensure the safety of everyone in our school community and beyond.
