The Dundee Central School District is going remote.
It will begin Friday and last a week, according to health officials.
A staff member tested positive for COVID-19, which prompted the decision after consultation with Yates County Public Health.
The staff member had last worked on Friday, October 30th.
“After consulting with health department officials, we will begin virtual instruction for ALL students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade tomorrow, Friday, November 6, 2020, and continue through next Friday, November 13. This includes all DCS students who attend CTE programs. At this time, we expect in-person instruction for all students to resume on Monday, November 16,” the district said.
They said that the decision was not made lightly and that it was necessary due to staff shortages created by required quarantine.
“This is due to staff shortages as result of necessary quarantining it is NOT due to a significant number of positive cases identified,” the district continued in a letter to parents. “To reiterate, it is one new positive at this time.”
