ILION, N.Y. – The Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES Pathways Academy is switching to virtual learning after a positive case of coronavirus was confirmed on Monday.
Students will go remote starting Wednesday, Oct. 14, until at least Monday, Oct. 19.
“These are unfortunate circumstances, and we hope that no additional illness occurs,” Herkimer BOCES District Superintendent Sandra Sherwood said. “The shift to virtual instruction in a case such as this was laid out in our reopening plan, so students will be able to effectively continue their learning. We look forward to resuming in-person instruction on Tuesday, Oct. 20.”
Pathways originally expected to return to in-person learning on Oct. 14, but were advised to make the temporary shift to online learning to ensure everyone’s safety.
All other Herkimer BOCES programs are not affected, and will follow regular schedules.
While learning remotely, Pathways students will follow their regular schedule, and should receive digital invitations or other communications from their teachers.
Pathways will also loan devices to students who need them.
The Herkimer BOCES Pathways Academy is located in the Remington Educational Complex in Ilion.
