BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Elmwood Franklin School in Buffalo, along with several other Western New York private schools, will move to distance-learning due to coronavirus concerns.

At Elmwood Franklin School, faculty and staff will still report to school next week to refine online curriculum delivery methods. Students will participate in distance learning. The school will be closed for deep cleaning, however there have been no suspected cases of coronavirus in the school, according to Head Master Andy Deyell. The school was scheduled to begin its spring break March 27th, so the distance learning will be effective for two weeks.

Other schools switching to distance-learning at this time include Nardin Academy, Buffalo Seminary and Nichols School.
