Two students test positive for COVID-19; schools remain open

The Fayetteville-Manlius School District has been notified that two students have tested positive for COVID-19.

The district was notified on April 16 that a Fayetteville Elementary School cohort C student tested positive for COVID-19. No students or staff members needed to quarantine because the student who tested positive has not been on campus as they are fully remote. 

The district was also informed that a cohort A F-M High School student who was last in school on March 30 has tested positive. Contact tracing determined that no students or staff needed to quarantine. 

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. 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.
