Covid-19 updates from Hornell City School District:

We hope that this weekly message finds you well. We continue to experience the impact of covid-19 with students and employees with positive cases and quarantines with an increase in both since our last report prior to winter recess.  

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.  

At the moment, we are anticipating some changing guidance from the NYSDOH.  We beleive that this will be provided to us by early next week.  We will be certain to communicate any important changes contained in it.   

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

This week, we learned of 34 positive cases of covid in our schools.  Here is the breakdown:
