It's the fifth day that school has been canceled for students in Saginaw County's Buena Vista district.
Now TV5 has learned Michigan's state superintendent, Mike Flanagan, is visiting with school administrators and school board members, possibly to hammer out a deal that would get kids back into classrooms.
Students have been out of class since last Monday and classes are canceled until further notice.
The district shut down last week after the entire staff was laid off because the district couldn't make payroll.
Meanwhile, the Pontiac School District was expected to run out of money this week, but the state stepped in Monday with funds to avoid a shutdown there. The move has many asking why the state isn't doing the same here.
A member of the school board says, at this point, no meetings have been scheduled to try to resolve this issue.
Some local lawmakers have been calling on the state to use its rainy day fund to help the district but Gov. Rick Snyder says he is against the idea.
State Representative Stacy Erwin Oakes of Saginaw says the district would not be getting a free pass. "The district will repay any emergency funding they receive, but we need to get these children back in school," said Oakes.
Oakes went on to say, "Everyone says the children should come first, well let's put words into action and allocate the emergency funding needed to open the school by Monday."
Governor Snyder says the state is looking at several plans to get the district back up and running. He says an emergency financial manager remains an option.
The district laid off teachers and all but three employees May 7. The district has said it wouldn't be able to make payroll May 24 because the state put a hold on its funding to recoup about $580,000 for a juvenile detention education program the district no longer operates.
Meanwhile, MLive.com reports Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee of Flint says 91 percent of the district's students get federal food assistance through free and reduced lunch programs, and he wants to ensure the shutdown doesn't affect their nutrition.
The district says that seniors will be able to graduate, but many alumni worry about the students after everything they've been through.
Buena Vista alumni are coming together to make graduation and prom special.
The district is accepting donations, in a separate account with all the money going to seniors.
You can help too. Send a check or money order to 705 North Towerline and be sure to write class of 2013 on it.
Alumni are also encouraged to attend the June fourth graduation because it could be the district's last graduation.
Meanwhile, the Pontiac school district is getting help to avoid running out of money. The state will release money to the district to meet its next payroll.
A report found the district would run out of money this week without help from the state. Pontiac is expected to get that money Monday.
