Each year over winter break, we temporarily close our office and take our online student courses offline to give both staff and students time to rest and be with their loved ones.
Here’s what Michigan Virtual learners need to know about our scheduled downtime over winter break.
Offline Dec 26-29
From Monday, December 26 through Thursday, December 29, students will not be able to log into Brightspace, the platform where they access online courses and submit assignments to instructors. Courses will reopen at 7 a.m. on Friday, December 30.
See FAQs below for information on how students can download lessons and assignments to continue to make progress over the break if desired.
Unavailable Nov 24-25 and Dec 23 – Jan 2
The Michigan Virtual office will be closed, and our staff (including instructors and the Customer Care Team) will be out of the office between Thursday, November 25 — Friday, November 26, and Friday, December 23 — Monday, January 2. If you reach out during this time, we’ll get back to you as soon as we can upon our return to the office.
System will remain online throughout the break
Learners in our Professional Learning Portal will continue to have uninterrupted access to their online courses throughout our winter break. Those enrolled in a facilitated course, however, should expect not to receive feedback from our staff between Friday, December 23 — Monday, January 2.
Processing of SCECHs may take longer than our typical 10-day turnaround due to our office being closed:
