Rochester-area school districts await COVID guidance from NY | #coronavirus | #kids. | #children | #schools | #parenting | #parenting | #kids


RUSH, N.Y. — Districts across Monroe County are hopeful for full in-person instruction this fall, but still need guidance from New York state.

Rush-Henrietta Schools Superintendent Lawrence Bo Wright says he, along with other superintendents, are encouraged by United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance that recommends three-feet of distance between students, but does not require it.

Despite that, it still all comes down to the state health department.

Wright says another problem that has plagued summer programs and looks like it will be a big issue heading into the fall is workforce shortages.

“I tend to attribute the shortage that we’re seeing to what I would call COVID fatigue,” Wright said. “Quite honestly teachers and employees just needed a break and needed time to rest and recharge and get themselves ready for summer. But again the labor shortage isn’t limited to education, it’s something that we’re seeing across several other sectors of the economy.”

Wright says several programs were affected this summer due to that shortfall.

One of his biggest concerns is bus driver shortages, which he says many districts already faced even before the pandemic. In Rush-Henrietta for instance, there was always a 15 to 20 driver shortage pre-pandemic, and during the pandemic it rose as high as 30.

Wright says he is hopeful that as the economy returns to normal, so will staffing levels.
