Per WGRZ, Buffalo Public Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash made the announcement on Sunday afternoon after all eight WNY counties had declared a state of emergency.

"If you live here, and you're a teacher and your school system is closed, you're not going to come to a school system where you work. You're going to be at home with your children, so we're trying to do a unified coordinated approach to this," Dr. Cash had said on Friday.
