A steady rise in cases in the Capital Region is continuing to have on impact on schools.

The North Colonie Central School District joins a list of schools that are going remote until after winter break. The district reported eight new cases on Monday.

North Colonie Superintendent Joseph Corr sent a notice to parents saying it is because of the number of active cases and the amount of students and staff members that are quarantined.

All students in grades K-12 are already fully remote this week after positive cases. In-person classes are now set to resume on Jan. 4.

One school in the Averill Park Central School District is also going remote. The decision comes after district officials announced three new cases on Monday.

Two of the new cases are at Poestenkill Elementary School and one is at Algonquin Middle School.  Due to the new cases, officials say staffing is stretched thin.

Starting Tuesday, K-5 students will continue learning in-person. Algonquin Middle School students will transition to remote learning through the end of the month.
