Kendall Central School will be closed beginning Monday until further notice.

The closing also means no sports practices or extracurricular events. Kendall announced the news in automated phone calls to the community at 3 p.m.

The district said it will provide updates on its website and through social media.

All 22 public school districts in Monroe County also will be closed until further notice, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello said this afternoon.

He made the announcement following the second confirmed case of coronavirus in Monroe, this time involving an employee at the Greece arcadia Middle School.

Here is the statement issued by Bello this afternoon:

“After consultation with Public Health Commissioner Dr. Mike Mendoza and the Superintendents of all 22 Monroe County School Districts, all Monroe County public schools will be closed to students beginning Monday, March 16, until further notice.

“Staff may be asked to report depending on the individual district needs.

“This closing includes all school-related activities, including sports and other extracurricular activities.

“Each individual school district will share more specific information regarding their plans for food, social supports, remote instruction, and other operational procedures with their individual communities.

“The Monroe County Health Department and school leaders will be reviewing this on a week-to-week basis — and providing an update by midday Friday.

“The City of Rochester will be announcing its efforts regarding food distribution and support for children and families tomorrow morning at a 10 a.m. press conference at the Emergency Operations Center.”
