High number of virus cases prompt Erie School District to stay online

Still wary about the trajectory of positive COVID-19 cases in Erie County, and following the recommendations of state officials, the Erie School District is postponing the start of in-person classes for elementary school students until at least through Jan. 29.

The district’s elementary school students had been scheduled to start hybrid instruction — a combination of in-person and remote learning — on Monday.

But upon the recommendation of Erie schools Superintendent Brian Polito, the School Board on Tuesday had no objections to pushing the start of the hybrid classes, including in-person classes, until at least Jan. 29.

The board met virtually in a special session at noon to vote on a district bidding policy and to discuss the status of instruction in light of the latest COVID-19 statistics.
