Remote students test positive for COVID-19; all schools remain open

On May 23, the Fayetteville-Manlius School District was notified that two students who are attending elementary and middle school remotely tested positive for COVID-19. 

Because the students are participating in the district’s remote instructional model and have not been on school grounds, there were no exposures related to this case at Fayetteville Elementary School or Wellwood Middle School. 

All F-M schools 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 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.
