CLINTON, N.Y. – With three positive coronavirus cases and nine teachers in quarantine, Clinton Middle School will switch to full-time remote learning this week.
Superintendent Steve Grimm says the district was unable to find enough substitutes to cover the 10 missing teachers.
“Even with the teachers streaming into the classes, we cannot find enough people even to simply supervise the in-person students while they participate with the streaming teacher,” Grimm said in a letter posted to the district website Monday.
The virtual learning applies only to middle school students, starting Tuesday and ending Friday, Oct. 16.
On Sunday, the district notified parents that a middle school student, a high school student and a middle school teacher tested positive for the virus.
Grimm says the positive teacher had contact with the nine other teachers who are now under quarantine.
Elementary and high school students and staff will follow normal schedules this week.
