WILLIAMSVILLE, New York – The decision to have all Williamsville students learn from a distance has been a contentious issue between families and district officials for the past few weeks.
While awaiting answers about their school situation, students in district schools joined together to organize a food campaign for FeedMore WNY.
The event took place Tuesday outside the Williamsville Central School office. Students said they want to use their students’ unity to be a positive force in society.
Some students also carried banners to protest the ongoing changes. The fundraising wasn’t originally intended to be a protest, but the students say they just want to turn their passion into positive energy.
Lucas Romanowski said: “It’s great to see everyone get together, but that’s not just our school, it’s between the three high schools, it’s great to see district-level unity when the rivalry is usually great, so it’s great to see everyone get together. First Class Head Williamsville East.
The district recently announced that students will have the option to return to class now part-time, but they haven’t yet said when this change will happen.
