As the situation regarding COVID-19 evolves, the Fayetteville-Manlius School District continues to monitor all guidance from local, state and federal agencies.
The Fayetteville-Manlius School District’s School Reopening Plan and a series of school reopening frequently asked questions are available for review. On Nov. 25, the district added to its resources a series of frequently asked questions regarding the impact Onondaga County’s COVID-19 zones will have on F-M schools.
The district is aware that many in the community have questions or concerns related to how COVID-19 is effecting school operations. To address these questions and concerns, the district’s Let’s Talk! platform, which is a web-based, two-way communications tool that allows anyone to share concerns or questions with district administrators at any time, is open.
The interactive software is designed to streamline conversations and is not intended to be used for communicating urgent messages. If you have an urgent question or concern, please contact your child’s school.
Return to School After Illness
Fayetteville-Manlius follows the guidance in the New York State Department of Health Pre-K to Grade 12 COVID-19 Toolkit when determining if a child can attend school and when staff can go to work. Please refer to the toolkit for help in determining if your child can attend school or return to school after an illness.
If your child needs a COVID-19 test, please refer to the Onondaga County COVID-19 Testing website.
