IMPORTANT! Covid-19 Testing Information!

As you know, our school is in Governor Cuomo’s designated yellow zone and therefore we have to have 20 % our students and staff tested weekly. Our first testing date and time is FRIDAY NOV. 20 from 12:00PM to 2:25PM.


This is only for students in PODS B and C attending school on FRIDAY NOV. 20TH.


The testing will take place in our cafeteria and you are welcome to accommodate your child while they are tested.  However, you will need to wait in your car while waiting for the results – usually within 15 minutes.  You must wear a mask while in the building at all times.


This test is considered non-invasive with the swab barely going up the nose and is the BioNax Now test.


In order for your child to be tested, we need you to register by going to the Onondaga County Registration Site at: https://covid19.ongov.net/appointments/schools/
