TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda UFSD Superintendent of Schools Sabatino Cimato announced Tuesday Kenmore East High School will temporarily transition to fully remote learning due to confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the school.
"Out of an abundance of caution, and in collaboration with ECDOH, I have made the decision for all Kenmore East students currently attending in-person instruction to transition to fully remote learning effective immediately," said Cimato. "This affects those Kenmore East students currently participating in the self-contained special education programs."
The transition will begin November 4 which will remain an asynchronous day of instruction. Synchronous remote instruction will begin November 5 and all Kenmore East teachers will also teach remotely.
The district anticipates this transition to extend through November 13 with a return to in-person instruction on November 16.
"The District has had ongoing communication with ECDOH. ECDOH will continue to conduct contact tracing and will reach out to anyone who may have had close contact with any individual who has tested positive. All individuals contacted are expected to comply with all instructions given by ECDOH, including any requirement to quarantine for a designated period of time," said Cimato.
