Students and staff in Cortland City School District will shift to online learning for at least two weeks, according to superintendent Robert Edwards.
He said the reason for the switch is due to a large number of quarantines that would’ve otherwise been required, after a handful of new positive cases confirmed at the district.
School officials are now working with the county health department in support of their contact tracing protocol.
WXHC spoke on the phone with Edwards for more.
“We based our decision on an abundance of caution and in line with the health department’s data and observations in the community,” Edwards said. “Fortunately, this is something we have practiced and I can’t thank my teachers and staff enough for managing these atypical circumstances.”
