COVID - Test to Stay

If your child has been determined to be a close contact of a positive, and doesn't show any symptoms of COVID-19, they are able to be tested in order to attend in-person learning. The student must test on each school day for seven (7) consecutive days. Students are to be brought to school by parent/guardian and must remain with the parent/guardian until the results of the test are confirmed. If the test is negative, the student may enter the building and go to class. If the result is positive the student must be brought back home.

Golden Knight Community,

As we move deeper into the school year and the fall, we have noticed an increase in the amount of symptoms that, in many years, are just another sign of the change in seasons.  This year however, we have the added risk of COVID-19.  There are many precautions that have been put in place by NYSDoH and LCDoH to help keep everyone safe, that we all must follow.  Sometimes the protocols may cause inconvenience to families as they can to the school, but hopefully if we all do our parts we can get through this with the least amount of disruption.  

What to do if your child has any of the following symptoms associated with COVID -19 (fever/chills, cough, shortness of breath, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, fatigue, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea, nasal congestion or runny nose, muscle or body aches) for 24 hours or more. Keep your child home and;

  1. Follow up with your child’s Primary Provider for a pre-existing condition note, or Urgent Care/Testing center for a COVID-19 test.

Obtain a note of a chronic pre-existing condition that causes the symptoms and the nature of the symptoms. The symptoms need to be consistent with what is normal for your child.
Have your child COVID tested.

2. If your child is COVID tested, call the school to let us know (585) 243-1730 ext. 2154. Your child will not be able to return to school until we receive a copy of the test results, they can be faxed to (585) 243-4267. 

3. Your child’s symptoms must be getting better before returning to school. If your child has had a fever, vomiting or diarrhea, they must be out of school until free of symptoms for 24 hours without medication.

The YCS Health Office will reach out to you once all information has been received and verified.  Until you have received that phone call your child cannot return to school. The bus driver will not be able to pick your child up until the Nurses have received the information and it has been verified.
