WHITESBORO, N.Y. – All Whitesboro Central School District students will have a fully remote learning day Tuesday after what school officials are calling “extensive community exposures” to coronavirus over the weekend.
The remote day will allow the county health department time to investigate and conduct contact tracing.
Oneida County confirms officials are investigating a COVID-19 exposure involving dance activity.
Anyone who was exposed will be contacted directly by the health department. Students who must quarantine cannot return for in-person instruction until the date designated by the school nurse or county health officials.
Students who attend BOCES for half-day programs will also be fully remote, but students who are enrolled in fully-day out-of-district programs can still attend as scheduled.
New York State testing scheduled to begin Tuesday is postponed until Wednesday for those in third through eighth grades.
Students involved in sports or extracurricular activities will be contacted separately regarding any changes in scheduling.
