Buffalo Public Schools said this about its reopening plan,
"In developing this plan, community input and engagement guided our decision making. To be clear, this current plan may change, maybe even many times before and after the new school year begins based on guidance we receive concerning the appropriate response to the virus. We will remain in daily contact with our health agency partners and elected officials to stay informed of the latest updates. We will continually receive and analyze data and feedback to make the most informed decisions and provide routine updates to our BPS community."
