WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. — The decision to have all Williamsville students learn remotely has been a contentious issue among families and district officials for the last few weeks.
While they await answers about their own schooling situation, students at students at area schools joined together to organize a food drive to benefit FeedMore WNY.
The event took place Tuesday outside the Williamsville Central School District office. Students said they wanted to use their student unity to be a positive force in the community.
Some students also brought signs to protest the ongoing changes. The fundraiser wasn't originally set to be a protest, but students say they just want to turn their passion into positive energy.
"It's great to see everybody come together but it's not just in our school, it's between all three high schools, it's great to see district wide unity when normally it's a big rivalry, so it's great to see everyone come together," said Lucas Romanowski, Williamsville East senior class president.
The district recently announced that students will have the option to return to the classroom now part time, but have not yet said when that change will happen.
