(WIVB) – Niagara University will shift to remote instruction for the rest of the semester beginning on Thursday.
The university continues to have positive cases, although the increase has not been as significant as it was at the end of last week, a statement from Niagara University said.
“This has been a demanding semester for our students, and we know that moving to remote instruction for the last few days of our face-to-face classes will also allow them to get home for Thanksgiving,” the statement said.
Frontier Central Schools will go remote starting Thursday. The superintendent expects that to last through at least Thanksgiving break. He says a number of transportation workers are under quarantine right now.
And Cheektowaga Central Schools will make the switch to virtual learning on Monday.
District leaders say there have been a lot of absences lately. They are hoping to bring students back on November 30th.
Meanwhile, cases are also being confirmed in three other school districts. Hamburg Central Schools is reporting cases at Charlotte Avenue School, Union Pleasant Elementary, and Hamburg Middle School.
The Williamsville Central Schools say a person tested positive at Mill Middle School.
It says that person was never in the building while they were contagious.
And Clarence Central Schools is also reporting a case at the high school.
The district says the person was last in the building on November sixth.
