COVID 2023-2024

Your child’s wellness is one of our top priorities as we begin the 2023-2024 school year. The New York State Department of Education recently released a statement saying it does not anticipate issuing new guidance for COVID-19 prevention in schools, and is referring families back to the most recent CDC releases.

Please review the below information regarding the Fairport Central School District’s 2023-2024 COVID-19 policies and guidance, which follow the CDC’s latest guidelines, issued in the spring of 2023.

School COVID-19 Guidance

  • The CDC recommends that people who have symptoms of respiratory or gastrointestinal infections, such as cough, fever, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, should stay home. Testing is recommended for people with symptoms of COVID-19 as soon as possible after symptoms begin.
  • If your student tests positive for COVID-19, they should stay home for at least 5 days and isolate
    • Isolation may end after Day 5 IF your student is fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication AND their symptoms are improving
    • If symptoms are NOT improving, the CDC recommends that the person continue to isolate until symptoms improve and your student is fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication
  • After the person has ended isolation and when symptoms have improved, the CDC recommends that people wear a well-fitting, high-quality mask through Day 10, OR until two rapid tests, taken 48 hours apart, are both negative.

The NYS Department of Health released information in early August regarding rising infection and hospitalization rates, and the courses of treatment available for those who test positive. If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please contact your child’s pediatrician regarding treatment options.

As always, thank you for your cooperation as we continue to prioritize student and staff wellness in our Fairport schools. 

Please see below for guidance and messages released in previous school years.

The Fairport CSD continues to monitor the CDC guidance, along with the NYSED, NYSDOH, Monroe County DOH and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidance, as the COVID-19 environment evolves into the next phase of the pandemic. Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and cooperation.
