On Sunday, Nov. 8, two Eagle Hill Middle School staff members informed the Fayetteville-Manlius School District that they tested positive for COVID-19.
A total of three Eagle Hill staff members have tested positive for the virus.
To allow the Onondaga County Health Department time to conduct contact tracing and for the district to line up substitutes for the affected staff members, Eagle Hill will shift to remote instruction for Monday, Nov. 9.
The staff members who tested positive—and any other students, faculty and staff that the county determines were exposed—will not return to school until they meet the protocols set by the New York State Department of Health.
If you are not contacted by the county but 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 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.
