Clyde-Savannah Central School District announced Saturday that students will continue virtual learning until further notice after a non-teaching staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

In a letter to families, the district said; "Due to a lack of adequate transportation staff, there is a significant strain on our ability to provide transportation for all students. As a result, we will be unable to return to in-person learning until further notice. During this time, we will be reevaluating our in-person learning plan due to our current transportation shortages. We will continue to share updates with you accordingly. If you have any specific questions, please contact your building principal."

This news comes after an update was posted on the district's website on Tuesday, Superintendent Michael Hayden said through contact tracing, Wayne County health officials determined members from the transportation department will be quarantined as a precautionary measure.

The district hoped to be back to in-person learning by Wednesday, Sept. 30 but due to the current transportation shortages that will not happen.

Meal distribution will continue for all families on Monday, Sept. 28, and Thursday, Oct. 1 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Pickup locations are at the Clyde-Savannah Elementary School and the Savannah Fire Hall located at 1770 State Route 89.
