Colds, Flu and the Coronavirus

What is the school going to do?

The District is in constant contact and receives correspondence routinely concerning the flu and the coronavirus from NYSED and the Department of Health. On March 13th we, along with other schools in our BOCES, will meet to discuss in depth what might be the possible scenario if the Coronavirus makes its way to our region. The district will continue to clean and disinfect our building and buses as part of our daily routine. We will monitor student illnesses and stay in contact with the Department of Health and follow their guidelines if it does work its way here.  

What do we need you to do?

Disinfect backpacks, wash jackets, hats and gloves. Keep your child home if they are exhibiting flu like symptoms, stomach ache, vomiting, or fever. Please contact Mrs. Losie, our school nurse, if these symptoms occur so we can keep track of student illness. Be diligent, clean and wash your hands for 20 seconds each time, take precautions and stay away from areas that have the flu or the Coronavirus.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 607 278-5511.



Please continue to remind your students, staff and parents that the best methods to reduce their risk of COVID-19 and other influenza are to:

= Wash your hands often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

= Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

= Avoid close contact with people who are sick, stay at least 6 feet apart.

= Stay home when you are sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 contact your health care provider or hospital BEFORE going.

= Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, then immediately dispose of the tissue.

= Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces at least daily.

This is a good CDC handwashing video which can be shared with them.
