Add the Jordan-Elbridge High School to the list of area institutions that are moving to remote learning.
Superintendent James Froio says a student with an extensive list of contacts tested positive for COVID-19.
“This student, like so many of our students, is active in school life and co-curricular activities. As you can imagine, the contact tracing list was extensive,” his statement to the community read.
Sports and band activities are being canceled for Monday, as contacting tracing efforts continue. No other schools in the district are being impacted at this time, but the high school is expected to remain on remote learning through the end of the month.
“The Onondaga County Health Department will be contacting all staff and students under quarantine this weekend. There will be no high school sports or band on Monday as the district will need time to cross reference the quarantine list with the sports and band rosters. If the teams and band can continue, we will support them,” officials added. “Please know that student and staff safety is our top priority and we are taking these measures to keep everyone well. Hang in there everybody, we will prevail through all of this together.”
