COVID-19 Protocols

  • For the start of the 2022-23 school year, New York State will be following the CDC’s latest COVID-19 recommendations. An FAQ can be found here.  Generally speaking, not much has changed since the end of the 2021-22 school year. We will not be conducting contact tracing. There are no masking or testing requirements for students or staff, but there will be opportunities for optional diagnostic testing for those who are symptomatic. While universal masking remains optional, we understand that families may decide to continue to mask while in school and we respect each family’s decision. 

    If a student tests positive, they:

    • are required to stay home for a minimum of five days from the day they tested positive or symptoms started;
    • should notify the school nurse that they have tested positive;
    • can return to school after five days if symptoms are resolving; and, 
    • should wear a well-fitting mask for an additional five days upon returning to school.

    There are no additional restrictions on resuming participation in sports or other extracurricular activities. 

    If a staff member tests positive, they:

    • are required to stay home for a minimum of five days from the day they tested positive or symptoms started;
    • should notify their supervisor and upload their positive test results into Immuware;
    • can return to work after five days if symptoms are resolving; and, 
    • should wear a well-fitting mask for an additional five days upon returning to work.

    The Department of Human Resources created this document to walk employees through the reporting process.

    Please call the school nurse with questions about COVID-19 or any other medical conditions or consult your personal physician.
