West Seneca and Maryvale School Districts Will Be Remote-Learning Only
Even though Governor Andrew Cuomo said schools in New York State could reopen for the fall, two Western New York school districts have decided against that.
According to WKBW, both West Seneca and Maryvale school districts will be remote-learning only to begin the 2020 school year.
The plan for West Seneca is to remain with a remote-learning model only through Thanksgiving, so parents can plan ahead.
Here's what the West Seneca School District said to its parents in an email:
"In order to provide a safe and meaningful educational experience, students in the West Seneca School District will begin the 2020-2021 school year in a fully remote mode of instruction. This will entail ALL students learning from home."
As for Maryvale, they have a three-phase plan, with phase one being remote-learning only -- from September 1st through October 2nd. They will reevaluate whether or not to have any in-person classes by that point (which is a hybrid model).
Phase three would be all in-person learning, but there's no timetable for that just yet.

Perhaps other schools will follow in West Seneca and Maryvale's footsteps.
