FREDONIA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Students in grades 9 through 12 in Fredonia Central Schools will be fully remote for the rest of the week.

In a phone call to 7 Eyewitness News, a representative for the district indicated that the shift to remote learning was due to a "staff shortage."

During a Fredonia Board of Education meeting, held via Zoom Tuesday evening, it was discussed that some staff are in precautionary quarantine. The high school's COVID-19 Report Cardwith New York State shows only one positive case since data started being collected in September. The positive test was a teacher or staff member.

Students in grades 9 through 12 will switch to remote learning on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Students in all other grades will continue their normal schedules.
