COVID Updates

In an effort to remain completely transparent in the school district’s status and response to the COVID 19 pandemic, we will begin publishing the number of staff and students who have been quarantined due to close contact or who have tested positive for COVID 19. 
The district leadership team has been working closely with the Cattaraugus County Health Department since the beginning of the pandemic.  Over the past several weeks, the number of positive cases in our region has continuously increased and the number of quarantined and positive students and staff is at a high. 

The district is committed to ensuring we are a safe place for students and staff.  The vast majority of positive cases in our schools were contracted outside of school.  The district is continuing to follow all safety practices including masks, cleaning, distancing, and aggressive contact tracing within 24 hours of notification.  Given these practices and the data we have available, we believe our schools are a safe place for students and staff.  The ability of the district to operate safely is dependent upon our staff availability and as the number of quarantined and ill staff members increases, this effects our ability to keep instruction in person. 

The number of quarantined and positive staff and students will be published at least once a week.
