(ABC 6 News) - Friday morning Superintendent Michael Munoz announced that students in Rochester will continue with the original learning plans set at the beginning of the school year.
In August Superintendent Munoz announced during a press conference that students Kindergarten through fifth grade would be in school two days out of the week, and distance learning for three. Students 6-12 would be participating in a full distance learning model.
"When we started school we were at 12.7 cases per 10,000, and the most recent 14-day number is 24.5," Munoz said Friday.
With cases increasing in the district, Munoz said this was not an easy decision to make, because of a number of other factors. However, he added that because of the positive COVID-19 cases, he does believe it is the safest decision for parents, students, and staff at this time.
