Many schools in the Capital Region have moved classes online to keep students and staff safe from the spread of coronavirus.

NewsChannel 13 reached out to area school districts for their plans.

Here’s what some districts say:

Guilderland High School is the latest to keep their students remote until January 4. The district says schools will be closed when snow or poor road conditions make travel difficult or impossible. That means no classes. If they exceed the planned number of snow days, they may make additional days remote-only instruction days.

The Cohoes School District has a similar plan. They say they have snow days built into their schedule and will use a traditional approach.

North Colonie says in the event of inclement weather, schools will either function on a one-hour delay or they will be closed. There will be no two-hour delays this year due to the change in building schedules to comply with coronavirus protocols.
