Eagle Hill staff member tests positive for COVID-19

On Sunday, Nov. 29, an Eagle Hill Middle School staff member notified the Fayetteville-Manlius Central School District that they tested positive for COVID-19.

The staff member was last in school on Tuesday, Nov. 17. 

Contact tracing is currently underway and the Onondaga County Health Department will determine if additional staff members and students will be placed in quarantine.

Due to privacy laws, the district cannot provide any additional information about the individual who tested positive. If you would 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 staff member who tested positive, and any other individuals the county determines must quarantine, will not return to school until they meet the protocols set by the New York State Department of Health.

The district continues to thoroughly clean and disinfect all buildings on campus and its buses 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 and on the plan’s FAQ web page.
