The Full Remote Program is still available to families. 2) Live Virtual Wednesdays will be eliminated for students in grades 1-5 starting March 10 to provide one additional in-person school day every other week. March 10 will be an in-person school day for B Day students and A Day students will have a remote day. The schedule will alternate going forward.

New York State has aligned with updated CDC guidance eliminating quarantine requirements for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19 who are exposed to someone suspected or confirmed of COVID-19.

Please note that individuals must meet the following criteria to avoid quarantine:

  • Are fully vaccinated (two weeks after their final dose)
  • Are within 3 months of receiving their final dose
  • Have remained asymptomatic since the COVID-19 exposure

Individuals who fail to meet all three criteria must continue to follow current quarantine guidance after exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19. 

School staff are currently being vaccinated as part of the state’s 1b phase. We are hopeful that a recent state and CDC change will help reduce the need for staff quarantines within our buildings over the next several months, particularly as the test positivity rate continues to decline in our county and region. 

Vaccinated individuals should continue to follow the state travel advisory according to the updated CDC guidance. This means, if an individual is fully vaccinated and travels to another state, other than those contiguous to New York, they must quarantine upon arrival home. They may “test out” of the mandatory quarantine period by following the state guidelines.

All school staff (including those who are fully vaccinated) and students should continue to follow our COVID-19 safety protocols, including wearing a mask, social distancing, avoiding crowds, covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands often, and staying home if they are sick.
