Covid-19 updates from Hornell City School District:

The snow days last week altered our weekly communication.  Information on this update is through last week.  We will send out an updated release for this week on Friday.

The district continues to receive more home tests from NYSDOH.  If you have a need for home tests, please contact the main office of your child’s school and they will be available for pick up or to be sent home with your child if you desire. 

We are still impacted by positive cases of covid within the school.  Thankfully, the numbers we are reporting from last week are close to half of what they were the prior week.  With these cases, we also have a number of students that are considered contacts.  For those that are contacts, the school is continuing to offer the “Test to Stay” program that allows children to continue to attend school through what otherwise would have been a quarantine from school as a contact provided they test daily at school before entering.  If your child is in this situation, your school nurse can provide you the details as to how your child can continue to attend as a contact of a positive.  

Below you will see the weekly count for student and employee positives within our district.    

This week, we learned of 24 positive cases of covid in our schools.  Here is the breakdown:

North Hornell Elementary

Hornell Intermediate School

Hornell High School

District Wide Employees
