Good afternoon Churchville-Chili families,

We are sending this message to inform you that three middle school students and two high school students have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and placed into isolation. Three of the cases are directly related. After completing its investigation, the Monroe County Department of Public Health has determined that the students were exposed outside of the school environment. Therefore, the Department of Health has not recommended that any school or classrooms be closed. The students will not return to in-person learning until receiving clearance from county health officials. It is not necessary to take action unless you are personally notified by the Department of Health. 

We were informed that Chestnut Ridge Elementary has been designated in the “yellow” zone. This designation was based upon the COVID-19 rate in the community, not the school. Due to the designation, we will be required to administer a weekly COVID-19 test, rapid shallow nasal swab, of 20% of staff and students each week. This is not the typical nasal pharyngeal test being administered in clinical settings. This shallow nasal swab (Abbott BinaxNOW) can be self-administered (older students) with results being available in approximately 15 minutes. Given our lack of in-school transmission, we anticipate a majority of test results to be negative. With the large number of districts administering the tests across the county, and the anticipated negative test results, we hope to be able to move out of the yellow zone within three weeks as the percentage of spread should decrease to well below 3.0%.

 

Families and staff will be informed via eNews and a district InstantConnect call later this week outlining the specific steps to identify their choice of testing. If we fail to meet the 20% testing requirement, all students will need to transition to remote learning until we are out of the yellow zone. More detail on Zones can be found here
