Dansville schools shift to remote learning



Dansville, New York — Friday the Dansville Central School District will close and shift to remote learning on Monday.

This comes after the latest rise in COVID-19 cases and absences among students and staff.

According to a message sent to parents Thursday, the district said remote learning would last through Tuesday, November 30.

According to the district, students were sent home with everything they would need for remote learning in the meantime.

33 students and 11 employees had COVID-19 as of Thursday, according to the district.

The district also said staff absences and a substitute shortage caused vacancies in schools.

With COVID-19 symptoms typically appearing 3-5 days after contact, and November 30 falling 5 days after Thanksgiving, the district said a December 1 return to classes will help students avoid coming into contact with pre-symptomatic positive cases.
