Greetings Black Knights Parents/Guardians:
As you know our school is in a NYS designated yellow zone and therefore, we will have our students and staff tested. The testing will take place in our gym. This test is considered non-invasive swab that barely goes into the nostril and is the BinaxNOW test. 
Please register prior to Sunday, 11/22 at 4 pm: https://covid19.ongov.net/appointments/schools/
This is voluntary and your child cannot be tested if they have symptoms. If your student previously tested positive they are unable to be test. If your student is quarantined, they cannot be tested at this time.
The testing is for hybrid (in person) students only. Virtual students do not need to register. If you have any questions, please, call the school at (315) 435-4343.
