Important Annoucnement from Principal Jennings!
Hello Corcoran Families this is Principal Jennings,
I want to thank all of you who took the time to fill out our district survey regarding COVID -19 testing. As you know our school is in Governor Cuomo’s designated yellow zone and therefore we have to have our students and staff tested. We need approximately 150 students to test in order to continue in person learning per the state guidelines. Please listen to this very important message regarding Corcoran High School’s testing day.
Corcoran High School testing date and time is Monday, November 23, 2020 between 8:35am and 11:35am.
The testing will take place in our cafeteria and is for students who attend school in person only. This test is considered non-invasive with the swab barely going up the nose and is the BioNax Now test. The test will take approximately 5 minutes and results will be provided within 15 minutes.
If your child does attend school in person on Mondays, they should arrive at the start of school as normal and they will be pulled from class to test at their designated registered testing time.
If your child attends school in person on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, they are still able to register to test. They will be allowed in the building at the time of their test only. Please do not drop your student off until their designated testing time. Since it is not your child’s designated day to attend school, please wait for your child to receive their test results, as your child will be asked to leave the property after they have taken the test and received their results.
If your child has already tested positive or is quarantined you cannot register your child to test.
In order for your child to be tested we need you to register utilizing the Onondaga County Registration Site, https://covid19.ongov.net/appointments/schools/. The link is in the text message, and email with this robo call, along with being posted on the Corcoran Website and Facebook page. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me at 315-435-4922.
Please register your child today. Registration closes Sunday, November 22nd at 4pm.
Thank you, and as always, GO CTF!
