School Closure Information
As we transition from hybrid instruction in our middle school and high school to a full return to in-person instruction in all of our buildings, there may be questions regarding when a student or staff member should stay at home.  The NYS DOH Pre-K to Grade 12 COVID-19 Toolkit is a resource compiled by the New York State Department of Health that is available to guide families and employees in determining any necessary steps to ensure the safety and health of everyone who attends school in our buildings. The COVID-19 Closure Graphic is also available to guide our decisions around when we should consider closing school due to increased COVID-19 positivity rates.  The thresholds being used are consistent throughout the region, and school closure decisions will be made in close consultation with the Department of Health.  

COVID-19 Resources
A number of COVID-19 related resources are currently available.  Use the links below to find a variety of agencies and contact information.

Reopening of Schools -- Creating a Safe & Healthy Environment

As we prepare to safely return back to school, remind our students about how practicing good hygiene and following safety procedures makes our classrooms safer and reduces the risk of spreading the virus.  If you suspect that a child is ill, please keep your child at home and use the links below to learn more about the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. There are also screening resources and assessments available online to help you determine whether your child is at risk.  Informative websites are available including the CDC who provide information about symptoms and screening, as well as educational posters that can be used in our classrooms and at home.
