Covid 19 Protocols

Your student will be sent home when presenting with any of the following: 
Fever 100 degrees or greater, persistent cough, persistent nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, persistent headache, sore 
throat, persistent runny nose, fatigue/body aches, loss of sense of taste or smell, and or swelling 
or rash to hands or feet.  
Your student will then need a negative Covid-19 test to return
to in-person school. 
If you keep your student home for the day due to ANY of the ABOVE SYMPTOMS, 

they will need a negative COVID-19 result to 
return to in-person school. 

Students with a negative Covid-19 test result can return to school IF symptoms are improving AND they 
are fever free for at least 24 hours with out the use of fever reducing medications.

If your child (student) tests POSITIVE, a copy of their release from isolation must be sent in to 
the school health office PROIR to their return to in person learning. If this was not 
recieved, the Onondaga County Health Dept asks that the parent call 315-435-2000 to get a 
copy of the order.  

These protocols are subject to change per guidance of the NYS Dept of Health.

 New York State Education Department mandates for Health Examinations:
  NYSED requires a physical examination for new entrants and students in Grades Pre-K, K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 11 as well as annually for interscholastic sports; and working papers as needed; or as required by the Committee on Special Education (CSE) or Committee on Pre-School Special education (CPSE).

Stay at home if you have any Covid-19 symptoms and perform a home covid antigen test before returning to school. 

All new enterers, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd and 5th graders are required by NYS law to have updated proof of immunizations and a physical exam for that year. It is requested that parents/guardians send a dental certificate for those grades as well.

ATTENDANCE POLICY-If your child is absent or tardy for any reason, you will need to call or email the nurse's office with the reason in the morning. However, my answering machine is always on and you may leave me a message at any time.

TARDINESS -When a student arrives at school after morning announcements he/she must report to the nurse's office before going to class.

EXCUSES - Legally, we must have written excuses concerning the reason a student was absent. All absences are considered illegal if no excuse is provided. If a parent emails me, I will use that email as the written excuse.

Notify health office of any changes in emergency contact information (home phone number, cell phone number and or address change).

All students who are 11 years or older entering 6th grade in the fall are required to have a Tdap immunization. Students who are 10 years old entering 6th grade need the vaccine on or after their 11th birthday.
