Western Schools Run on Two-Hour Delay Wednesday
Citing staffing issues, the Western School District in Barry and Kinderhook will be in session Wednesday, but will be running on a two-hour delay. Buses will run two hours later than usual.
Students at the Middle School in Kinderhook will be in session from 10 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Students at the elementary and high school in Barry will be in session from 10:15 to 3:30.
Western officials had been informed of a positive COVID-19 case within the school community last Friday.
As a result, one classroom is closed for 14 days from the last contact with the infected person, and contact tracing was done for any person within six feet of the positive case for 15 minutes throughout the day.
