ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — As districts statewide get back to learning Monday, a few local districts will be back in classrooms after previously putting in-person learning on pause.

After hitting the brakes due to COVID-19 cases among its bus driving staff, Penfield will return to hybrid learning. 

In Wayne County, the Wayne Central School District will also resume its hybrid model. The district previously paused in-person classes due to an increase in positive COVI9-19 cases. Public Information Officer Amy Gebhardt told News10NBC the district hopes to remain open.

In Livingston County, the Keshequa Central School District announced it would be returning to its hybrid model.

In Genesee County, the Batavia City School District will resume its model. The district previously closed its doors in early December due to what Superintendent Anibal Soler Jr. said were a number of challenges, including the ability to fill its in-person learning staff, a rise in out-of-school social gatherings, and a growing number of cases within the district.

The district is still requiring parents to sign a COVID-19 testing consent form in order to allow their children to attend schools.
