Auburn Enlarged City School District Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo says the high school is moving to remote learning, and the rest of the district’s schools could soon follow.
The initial announcement came in a call to parents, in which the context of the situation was shared.
Pirozzolo said that 10 teachers had to enter quarantine due to a positive case at the high school. In a conversation with FingerLakes1.com right before Thanksgiving break, Pirozzolo shared the struggle of finding substitutes.
“There just aren’t enough,” he said at the time. “It’s a real challenge. But we’re making the best of it.”
At this point the high school is going to remain in the remote learning model through December 15th. A decision will be made at that time about whether Auburn will return its high school students to in-person learning.
He said the district is getting ‘very close’ to a point where all schools will be required to go fully-remote due to COVID-19.
