ILION, N.Y. – Central Valley School District is preparing to have high school students come back to a hybrid model.

During a Board of Education meeting Wednesday, Superintendent Jeremy Rich said 60% of students in ninth through 12th grades will go hybrid, which means roughly 250 will be in the school each day. Rich said the large campus provides enough room for social distancing with that amount of students.

The district is phasing the transition, keeping elementary students fully remote on the first day, to see how it goes.

“I want to be clear; it's not going to be smooth. But just because it's not going to be smooth, doesn’t mean we're not going to give it a shot,” said Rich. “We're going to give it a shot and work through these growing pains.”

Rich said 65 percent of the teachers in the district have already received at least the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
