FAIRPORT, N.Y. (WROC) — Fairport Schools are taking the next steps to fully reopen next Monday.
Full in-person instruction will begin five days a week for students in grades Kindergarten through 6th only — in accordance with the state’s newest reopening guidance. Grades 7th through 12th will remain hybrid for now due to the high infection rate in Monroe County.
The board of education held a special meeting Tuesday night to break down the reopening process ahead.
The state says that 3 feet distancing is allowed for all grade levels in counties with low to moderate transmission rates, which is one reason those lower grades can return to school full time.
For counties like Monroe with higher COVID-19 transmission rates, middle schoolers and high schoolers must still be kept 6 feet apart.
