HOLLAND PATENT, N.Y. – Holland Patent Central School District is extending remote learning another week, to allow staff to get vaccinated.

Students were originally scheduled to resume hybrid schedules on Jan. 19, but the start date has been extended to Monday, Jan. 25.

In a letter to the school community, Superintendent Jason Evangelist said, “The additional week of remote instruction will allow time for our staff to receive the vaccination, which will provide more protection from getting sick with COVID-19. This will also allow additional time for the District to survey our families to determine the number of in-person and remote students going forward.”

When the district starts in-person instruction again, students and staff will follow the same safety measures of social distancing and wearing masks.

Evangelist urges students, parents and staff to, “Please continue to follow the NYS Department of Health safety guidelines for mass gathering limitations, social distancing, hand washing and facial coverings. This will help our schools remain open, continue the downward trend of positivity rates in our region and prevent the virus from entering our buildings.”

The district made the shift to remote learning in December, after several students and staff were required to quarantine due to coronavirus exposures or infections.
