NEW YORK – New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo says school in the state will remain closed for another two weeks as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Governor Cuomo made the announcement at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City Friday.











The Governor asked the schools to continue to provide meals for students and continue at home education programs.

Last week, Jamestown Public Schools announced they will not reopen until April 20.







At that time school said they hope to send students back to school earlier than April 20, but are prepared to provide services and supports to students and their families for as long as is needed.

Jamestown Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Bret Apthorpe is scheduled to join our Justin Gould during a LIVE interview Friday at noon where he will provide an update on the district response.
