BESSEMER — A Return-to-Learn plan was approved by the Bessemer Area School Board during a special meeting held over Zoom on Tuesday. The plan offers parents the option of enrolling their students in one of two ways — virtual or in-person, this fall as long as Gogebic County remains in Phase 5 of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Safe Start plan.
