Out of an abundance of concern for the health and safety of students and teachers leading up to the district’s winter recess, all F-M schools will continue to follow a fully-remote instruction schedule through Wednesday, Dec. 23, which is the last day of instruction before the district’s break.
Due to privacy laws, the district cannot provide any additional information about the individuals 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 individuals 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.
