BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — There are many questions when it comes to kids returning to school. The superintendent of largest school district in Western New York answered some of those questions on Monday.

Will parents be allowed to opt their students out of in-person learning?

For Buffalo Public Schools, yes.

"In the coming days and weeks, what exactly you need as a parent for your child and family from the district for you to have successful year of remote learning," said Kriner Cash in a Facebook Live.

The district is looking at starting completely virtual and then gradually bringing students back to school. If or when, students physically go to school, will they have their temperatures taken every day?


The district will work with parents to make sure families can take their temperatures every morning before school.

There are plenty more questions to be answered. The district wants to hear them. Check out this Facebook page for more details on future hearings. You can also find the full reopening draft, plus a form to offer feedback at this link here.
