The Romulus Central School District is continuing remote learning after a student tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.
The district was informed that a secondary student at RCS tested positive for COVID-19, which prompted school officials to coordinate with health officials on a best path forward.
“Certain staff and students’ families will be contacted by public health to complete the contact tracing. As this is a matter of confidentiality and privacy, we are unable to share specifics regarding this positive test. However, I want to assure you that we will continue to be proactive and follow the guidance provided by the Department of Health,” officials said.
“Under the guidance of the Seneca County Department of Health, and out of an abundance of caution, the District will transition to full-remote instruction for all learners grades PK-12 for Monday, November 16th and Tuesday, November 17th, 2020. We anticipate returning to our in-person and hybrid schedules (as we have since the beginning of this school year) on
Wednesday, November 18, 2020. If an extension to this full remote instruction is needed, another announcement will be made prior to November 18th.”
Health officials ask students, family, and members of the community to continue monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19.
