Our Commitment to Health and Safety
The Buffalo Public School District is committed to providing families and staff with updates on COVID-19, commonly referred to as Coronavirus. The health and safety of our community is a shared responsibility that is always our top priority. As you know, the situation with the COVID-19 Coronavirus is rapidly evolving. As of March 24, 2020, we are aware of 114 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Erie County.
Given recent announcements by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control that Coronavirus may spread – and that cases of influenza are regularly reported – we wanted to share some additional information about steps the school district is taking as well as steps you can take to help prevent the spread of viruses. Please use the links below for daily updates for the world, United States, New York State, and Erie County.
