A Roxbury Central School kindergarten student, who is homebound due to health issues, is engaging in classroom studies through an innovative videoconferencing arrangement.
The student, Dylan Utter was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy when he was 17 months old. His parents, Erica and Fred Utter Jr., have sought countless treatments for Dylan’s medical problems. While their son’s condition has improved, he remains too medically fragile to attend school, primarily because his immune system is compromised and he’s susceptible to sickness.
