Thank you to our Cornerstone community for your support as we navigate this pandemic together. Cornerstone is dedicated to the health and safety of our teachers, faculty, students and their families. This page will be used to update the Cornerstone community about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the District’s response and procedures.

A Message from clark durant

Cornerstone Schools is working with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Detroit Health Department (DHD) to closely monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The health and safety of all students, staff and families is our top priority. The MDHHS is continuing to coordinate with public health authorities that are taking the lead on educating and support resources.

We understand that many of our staff, students and families have questions and concerns. To best ensure you and your family remain healthy, always practice good hygiene habits:

1. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

2. Be sure to wear a mask when indoors in public, including any instances when you may visit the schools

3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands

4. Avoid close contact with people who are sick

5. Stay home when you are sick

7. Frequently clean commonly used objects or surfaces

6. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and wash your hands

CEG will continue to keep staff, students and families updated and will promptly advise should any additional precautions become necessary. If anything should change, we will communicate with you in the same manner we do for inclement weather.

If you have concerns about you or your child’s health, please contact a medical practitioner or the Detroit Health Department’s Outbreak Response Team at or (313) 876-0705.

We plan to share additional updates and resources frequently.

Cornerstone parent communications

  • We’d like to thank you for your support and assistance as we work together to continue providing the best education possible in a virtual environment. Please help ensure your student is actively engaged in learning by explaining the following to your student(s):
    • Cameras ON during Zoom calls
    • Find a quiet place to help concentrate (this also helps respect at home privacy)
    • Student profile pictures should be appropriate
    • Stay ON MUTE when not speaking
    • The student code of conduct applies to the virtual learning environment, and inappropriate behavior will have consequences. 

Below are the most recent communications regarding Cornerstone’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
