    Staying Vigilant Means Staying Open!

     Now that we have completed the first two weeks of our hybrid learning model, we want to remind you of the need for absolute vigilance in maintaining and ensuring the health and safety of us all.

    1. Masks Matter! Please be sure to remind your child(ren) that masks are to be worn at all times during the day with the exception of when eating and during teacher announced mask breaks. This means keeping the mouth and the nose covered. 
    1. Avoid the Groups! Please be sure to keep yourselves and your children away from large groups where masks are not being worn by all and social distancing is not being practiced. 
    1. Keeping Symptomatic Children Home! When your child has the following symptoms, they are not to attend school:
    • Has a temperature of 100.0 or greater
    • Feels feverish or has chills
    • Has a persistent cough
    • Is experiencing loss of taste or smell
    • Is fatigued/has a feeling of tiredness
    • Has a sore throat
    • Experiences shortness of breath or has trouble breathing
    • Is nauseous or is vomiting
    • Has diarrhea
    • Experiences muscle pain or body aches
    • Has a headache
    • Has nasal congestion/runny nose

    The NYS Department of Health requires that:

    1. Your child may not attend school if they have any of the above symptoms and they must be evaluated by their doctor. In these situations, please call the school’s attendance office or school nurse.
    2. If your child reports to the nurse’s office with any of the above symptoms, you will be called and must pick up your child.
    3. If your child was absent or if they were dismissed from school due to symptoms, they may only return to school with a clearance note from their doctor. If COVID-19 is suspected, your child will be tested and may return to school only with a negative test result and doctor clearance. If your child tests positive, they may return when your local health department clears them. Please do not send your child back to school with their clearance papers until you have spoken to their nurse.

    Your child’s doctor may provide your school nurse with a diagnosis of a chronic condition with unchanged symptoms, or a laboratory confirmed illness, such as influenza or strep throat. COVID testing may not be necessary under these circumstances, but that will be at the discretion of your provider.
