Eagle Hill student tests positive for COVID-19; school remains open

On Thursday, Dec. 3, the Fayetteville-Manlius School District was notified that an Eagle Hill Middle School student tested positive for COVID-19.

The student, who is a cohort A student, was last in school on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Based on the timing of when the student was last in school and the fact that school was not in session the rest of that week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, it has been determined there were no exposures related to this case at school and that Eagle Hill will remain open for in-person instruction. 

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 student who tested positive 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.
