Parochial schools return to in-person instruction after winning injunction

Kaitlen Durbin, Toledo Blade |

Area parochial schools are returning to in-person instruction now that a federal appeals court has deemed the Toledo-Lucas County Board of Health’s order to close them as unenforceable, but the fight may not yet be over.

The health department has filed a petition for rehearing, asking the court to reconsider its ruling, a spokesman confirmed Monday. The department did not answer additional questions about the action, saying it is following the guidance of its legal counsel.

It didn’t stop Monclova Christian Academy from returning students to the classroom Monday, and games and sports team practices are set to resume Tuesday.
