NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – After a lengthy board of education meeting Tuesday night, many New Hartford Central School District parents were still confused about the plan to switch to a hybrid learning schedule Monday.

Would it be the hybrid plan laid out in July's reopening plan? Were there any updates or new procedures?

According to Superintendent Robert Nole, the district will be following the reopening plan posted on their website, which was also approved by the state over the summer.

Some parents expressed concern over social media regarding the abrupt change from remote to hybrid, but Nole says the district is working to ensure the least amount of disruption while switching learning models.

"Challenges are exponential; everyone is doing more with less -- we're in a global pandemic. We provided professional development opportunities during the summer, we also had conference days at the beginning of the school year. We are working together and want to ensure there is a smooth transition,” said Nole.

Some parents, frustrated over what they perceive as a lack of communication, have called for Nole’s resignation with an online petition.

Nole says parents will hear from their individual school principals regarding procedures, schedules and transportation.
