On Friday, Nov. 6, the Onondaga County Health Department notified the Fayetteville-Manlius School District that four individuals within the school community tested positive for COVID-19.
The positive cases include an Eagle Hill Middle School staff member, two students at Fayetteville-Manlius High School and one student at Enders Road Elementary School.
- One of the F-M High School students was last in school on Friday, Oct. 30, and is now in isolation. The second high school student was last in school on Friday, Oct. 23, because they had already been placed in quarantine. Based on contact tracing, the district determined that there were no exposures at the high school from either of the students, and the school can remain open for in-person instruction.
- The Eagle Hill staff member was last in school on Monday, Nov. 2, and is now in isolation. Contact tracing identified 22 students from Cohort A as contacts of the staff member in addition to three other employees, and the county is determining whether to place them in quarantine. Eagle Hill will also remain open for in-person instruction.
- The Enders Road student was last in school on Friday, Oct. 30. Contact tracing identified 10 students and four staff members as contacts of the student, and the county is determining whether to place them in quarantine. Enders Road will also remain open for in-person instruction.
None of the individuals in isolation or quarantine will return to school until they meet the protocols set by the New York State Department of Health.
If you were not contacted by the county health department but would still like to be tested out of an abundance of caution, please visit the New York State COVID-19 web page to find a testing location near you or talk with your healthcare provider.
The district continues to thoroughly clean and disinfect all buildings on campus in accordance with guidance from the state Department of Health and the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Information about F-M’s health and safety protocols related to COVID-19 can be found in the district’s school reopening plan.
