PLEASE NOTE:

Based on information provided by Public Health (WCPH), the majority of exposures to COVID-19 in the County continue to be from personal/community settings. We ask our school community to continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask, washing hands, practicing social distancing, and avoiding any large gatherings.

 

The District will continue to adhere to New York State guidelines to create the safest possible learning environment for students and staff. This includes the cleaning and disinfection of exposed areas, with such cleaning and disinfection to include, at a minimum, all heavy transit areas and high-touch surfaces as detailed by the Centers for Disease Control.

 

All students and staff are to complete the daily health screenings prior to boarding a school bus or coming to school. Students and staff should not come to school when feeling ill. We ask our school community to continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask, washing hands, practicing social distancing, and avoiding any large gatherings.

 

Questions should be directed to the Wayne County Public Health Department at 315-946-5749.

 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

 

The next health and safety update will be released on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.
