ROME, N.Y. --- With the rising number of coronavirus cases in Oneida county, the Rome city school district is switching back to their fully remote learning model. Superintendent, Peter Blake, sent a letter to parents and staff, explaining his decision.
Blake said staff quarantines are making it extremely challenging and stressful for in-person staff to keep the schools open.
He says yesterday alone, the district learned of three positive cases, one in three different buildings that resulted in many student and staff quarantines that all three buildings will be closed for two weeks.
Remote learning will begin on Monday and continue into Jan. 8.
