BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Public Schools is getting ready to potentially welcome more students back into the classroom for in-person learning.
Principals from individual schools have started to inform parents that the district is planning to allow Phase 2 students back into classrooms sometime in Mid-March.
The exact date of return has not been decided, but is expected to be announced soon.
Full details on which grade levels will be allowed to return in Phase 2 remain unclear, but schools have received guidance from Buffalo Public Schools.
Schools are beginning to survey parents to confirm the number of students interested in returning to in-person learning, and to weigh the need for bus transportation.
Phase 2 would likely follow the same hybrid model that has already been implemented for students in Phase 1.
Only pre-K through second grade, high school seniors and some students with special needs were invited back to in-person classes two days a week for the first time in February.
Buffalo Public Schools students had been learning remotely since the start of the 2020-21 school year.
