CAMDEN, N.Y. – Camden Central School District has switched to fully remote learning after dozens of staff and students had to quarantine stemming from positive COVID-19 cases within the school community.

The district has been following a hybrid plan since the start of the school year, but switched to remote on Monday, Nov. 9. The students will remain remote until Monday, Nov. 30.

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, Superintendent Ravo Root III said four members of the school community had tested positive for coronavirus over the past three days.

Following direction from the health department through contact tracing, several students and employees were placed under quarantine. Root said the decision was made to switch to virtual learning because “the district cannot currently operate in a safe manner.”

According to Root, the plan is to switch back to hybrid learning on Nov. 30, but an update will be sent to parents and employees prior to Thanksgiving, finalizing the plans for returning.
