Tyler Nichols is ready to start his sophomore year of high school.
He's looking forward to it, especially because it would mean he can be around kids his own age for the first time in several months.
"I'm a person who likes just seeing people every day," he said.
But even though most school districts in upstate New York will be allowed to reopen in September under the criteria outlined Monday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Tyler will not be returning to Avoca high school in Steuben County, where he lives.
