The Fayetteville-Manlius School District has been notified that two individuals from the same household recently tested positive for COVID-19.
The district was notified on March 17 that an Enders Road Elementary School cohort B student tested positive for COVID-19. The student was last in school on March 12, and contact tracing determined that two students and no staff members needed to quarantine.
The other individual who tested positive for COVID-19 is a cohort B Eagle Hill Middle School. That student was also last in school on March 12, and contact tracing determined no other Eagle Hill students or staff must quarantine. The district learned of this second case on March 18.
At this time, all F-M schools remain open for in-person instruction.
Due to privacy laws, the district cannot provide any additional information about the individuals who tested positive and those who must quarantine. 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.
