UTICA, N.Y. – The executive principal of Notre Dame schools in Utica is directing students on certain bus routes to stay home until further notice, after notifying parents of a positive coronavirus case on the high school campus.

The letter from Principal Roy Kane stated, in part:

“All students who ride bus routes #171/#371, #43, #44, #45, and/or #46 are directed to stay home tomorrow until further notice.  We, as well as the Oneida County Department of Health are awaiting information from Birnie Bus regarding COVID-19 policies, procedures, and protocols observed.”

It is not yet clear whether students are expected to learn remotely while at home.

Both the school and the Oneida County Health Department were still waiting to hear from Birnie Bus Monday afternoon.

NEWSChannel 2 has reached out to Notre Dame for more clarification on the positive coronavirus case, and the measures being taken, but have not yet heard back.

Notre Dame students returned to 100% in-person learning this year, but did implement safety procedures like requiring masks and social distancing.
