On Thursday, Sept. 24, Fayetteville-Manlius School District officials learned that a Fayetteville Elementary School teacher tested positive for COVID-19.
Out of an abundance of caution and to allow Onondaga County Department of Health officials to conduct contact tracing, there will be no in-person instruction at Fayetteville Elementary on Friday, Sept. 25, and all Fayetteville Elementary students will have a remote learning day.
Teachers may work from their classroom or at home, and all other staff should report as normal.
Unless directed otherwise by the Onondaga County Department of Health, district officials anticipate that Fayetteville Elementary will return to its regular hybrid learning model with students in attendance on Tuesday, Sept. 29.
The district’s other schools will follow their regular schedules for Friday, Sept. 25.
