May 25, 2022

Golden Knight Families,

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to you today following the tragedy that occurred in Uvalde, Texas; where so many innocent lives were lost.   There have already been 200 mass shootings across the country since January 1, 2022.  Upstate NY is not immune as just days ago we experienced the horrific, hate filled event only an hour away in Buffalo.  Unfortunately this is becoming all too commonplace today.  

The country is at a crossroads with so many of our youth in need of mental health support.  Not only in coping with the events across the nation and specifically in Texas, but all in the stress of the past two years.  Additionally, working as partners with our families, the district has added counseling support to help get through this difficult time.

As families and caretakers, we can struggle at times in how to support our students and when to give them their space. This is the time to engage through conversation.

Here are some resources that may help in finding the wording or the support.

 We all, students especially, have questions about what happened and why.  We must engage our youth on this topic and have these difficult conversations.

York CSD is a very special place where students, families and staff look out for and take care of each other and it is in times like this that we MUST redouble our efforts to check on one another.  If you see someone in need or have a concern, reach out and let someone know.  In other words, “If you see something, say something.”  Below is the Safe School Hotline.  This is an anonymous service that you can access 24/7 if you or someone you know is in crisis.  You may also reach out to the school administrators or counselors.

As an added preca
ution, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office will have an increased presence throughout the district starting today.

Please understand that none of us are alone in this.

Together that we stand… UKnighted!

Sincerely,

David Furletti




COVID GUIDANCE

What do I do if my child tests positive?

  • Call the school Nurses at 585-243-1730 ext. 2154 or email them at [email protected] or [email protected]
    1. Tell them your child’s test date and/or symptom start date
    2. Tell them what symptoms your child has or had
  • Isolate the positive child from other family members.
  • Test any siblings/school aged children in the house daily for 5 days (Test to Stay) after the last date of exposure.
  • We offer testing M-F in the elementary cafeteria from 7am-8:15am and T/Th evenings from 3:30pm-5pm.
  • Isolation is 5 days, the county has only been going back 48 hours if you have had symptoms. Ex. symptoms started on Sunday, you tested on Tuesday, you isolate for 5 days from Sunday or if asymptomatic, they will go from your test date. Please talk with our school nurses to verify dates.
  • Days 6-10, you must wear a well-fitting, non-cloth mask at all times while in the building. If you have a medical exemption and cannot tolerate a mask, you must quarantine for 10 days. 

 

What do I do if my child comes in contact with someone who is positive?

Please call the Health Office at 585-243-1730 ext. 2154. Under most circumstances, your child will need to test minimally on the school day that the exposure is identified or the next school day if it is late in the day, and then on day 2 and day 5 (Test to Stay). This is for an exposure that is not in the household. If the exposure is in your household, you must test daily for 5 days.

FAQ:

Do I need to test my child who was positive and in isolation before returning to school?

Answer: No, you do not need to test your child before returning. 

Can I test my child who is a contact more than the recommended times?

Answer: You can always test more than the recommendations.

How do I count days for isolation if my child is positive?

Answer: The DOH says that symptom start date or if asymptomatic, test date, is day 0. 

  • So if your child has symptoms on Tuesday and you test the next day, Tuesday is day 0, Wednesday is day 1 and so on.

 

****As the guidance continues to change, we will update this page as we learn of them.****




Golden Knight Families:

Beginning Wednesday, March 2, 2022, students and staff will exercise their personal choice to be masked or unmasked.

The District will respect personal choice and support all students and staff in feeling safe and ready to learn. We recognize that students and staff members who choose to mask may do so for many reasons, including but not limited to:

● Personal underlying health conditions

● Complying with their parents' directions

● Living with vulnerable household members

● Living with entrepreneurs and the risk associated with lost wages

● Personal choice

● Respect for others and trying to keep others safe

Again, it is important to the District that everyone feels comfortable in doing what’s best for themselves and their families. If your child experiences challenges or peer harassment for wearing a mask, please notify your child’s teacher, school counselor or principal.

Sincerely,

David Furletti
