NISKAYUNA – Niskayuna schools are going all-remote Friday over the bus driver shortage.
In a post on the district’s website, interim Superintendent Juliette Pennyman the need arose over an “extreme shortage of bus drivers.”
“Given the number of bus drivers that we know will be out on Friday, there is no way we could adequately run our transportation system. We apologize for this inconvenience,” Pennyman wrote.
The move is to impact all grades, from Kindergarten to 12th.
Elementary level, K-5, instruction is to take place via live Google Meets when possible with materials from Google Classroom or SeeSaw, Pennyman wrote.
Grade 6 to 12 students are to follow the current in-person bell schedule with instruction provided via live instructional Meets with materials shared via Google Classroom, Pennyman wrote.
