The Penn Yan Central School District is going remote.
The announcement came on Tuesday after consultation with local health department officials.
“Over the last two days, the District has seen a drastic increase in the number of students and staff that have tested positive, are displaying possible COVID symptoms, have been exposed to someone who has, and/or have been placed in mandatory quarantine,” a statement from the district read. “After careful consultation with the Yates County Public Health Department, due to these rising numbers are going to pivot to distance learning 2.0 until January 19th.”
The district says that principals and teachers will be in touch with parents in the coming hours with specific details.
“We understand that this puts increased stress on families and that this will inconvenience many individuals,” the district added. “We have worked very hard to keep our students here in school and do not make this decision lightly.”
They thanked the community for continued support.
