The Waverly Central School District moved to online instruction on Monday due to the Village of Waverly being placed in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “Yellow Precautionary Zone.”

There was no word as of press time Monday evening if the school district would be able to move students back into the classroom on Tuesday. The district had said last week that it would need to be able to test 20 percent of all students, teachers and anybody else on site in order to still have onsite instruction.
