Allendale-Columbia switching to online classes Monday in light of COVID-19 concerns


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Allendale-Columbia, a local private school, will suspend its in-person classes starting Friday, Head of School Mick Gee announced Thursday.

Students will learn via their computers at home, Gee confirmed.

“We’ve been doing it for a couple weeks now, so we’re ready to go, said Gee. “Students have been practicing.”
