The Watkins Glen Central School District is staying remote a bit longer.
Officials say remote learning would continue next week as COVID cases rise, and non-quarantine staff absences increase.
Students had originally been scheduled to return on Monday, but Superintendent Greg Kelahan said students would continue learning remotely through November 13th.
“Based on the health and safety conditions of our region, increases in non-quarantine staff absences that will impact our ability to operate, and the shortened week due to parent conferences – I have made the decision to have our students remain in remote learning,” he said. “I truly understand the burden this places on families – please know that the school is working hard to return all students to on-site instruction in a manner that is safe for children and staff.”
