Coronavirus Information

COVID- 19 Information

  • Illness/positive COVID test 
    • As with any infectious illness, students and staff who test positive for COVID-19, or who show symptoms, are asked to stay home from school and it is recommended they follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Isolation Guidance below:
      • Someone who tested positive and has no symptoms may return to school after day 5. 
      • Someone who has tested positive and has symptoms may return to school after day 5 if they have been fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and symptoms are improving.
      • It is recommended that people who have been sick, or tested positive, should wear a mask through day 10. 
  • Testing
    • Testing is recommended for people with symptoms of COVID-19 as soon as possible after symptoms begin. Please note that we do not offer testing at school.


  • COVID-19 vaccination
    • COVID-19 vaccinations are not required to attend school.


  • Masks
    • Masks continue to be optional. However, any student or staff member may wear a mask while at school if they are more comfortable. Mask-wearing is recommended by the CDC and the NYSDOH for at least 10 days following a positive COVID test, or COVID illness.
