Liverpool school decides to go remote for a week as positive COVID cases and quarantines grow

One school in Onondaga County is forced to switch to remote learning starting Friday and ending next Thursday.

Elmcrest Elementary School in Liverpool will remain virtual due to the large number of positive COVID cases and quarantines.

This is the first time in the county a school has had to go virtual because of COVID.

Students will be learning virtually on Friday, then Tuesday and Thursday next week. They are off Monday.

Students are equipped with Chromebooks.

29 students and two teachers tested positive for the virus as of Oct. 6.

114 students have had to quarantine since school began.

The decision to go remote was made so the school can be deep cleaned.
