F-M High School student learning remote tests positive for COVID-19; school remains open

On Saturday, Oct. 31, the Onondaga County Health Department notified the Fayetteville-Manlius School District that a high school student who has been attending school remotely has tested positive for COVID-19. 

Based on contact tracing, health department officials believe there was no exposure at the school because the student was studying remotely during the virus’ infectious window and is not participating in interscholastic athletics.

F-M High School will remain open for in-person instruction.

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.
