Important Announcement on 10/23/2020

Dear Citizenship Academy Elementary School families and guardians,

The Citizenship Academy Elementary School was informed today, October 23, 2020, by the Onondaga County Health Department, that a student in Citizenship Academy has tested positive for COVID-19. The Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act (HIPPA) and other privacy laws restrict the District from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information and we cannot identity anyone who has tested positive. The student was last in attendance on October 19, 2020.

On October 21, 2020 we self imposed closure for disinfection on October 22, 2020 and October 23, 2020 and to measure the scope of potential exposure, while determining the further course of action. Well working with the county health department, we determined that our closure exceeded the recommendation by the county. As such, we will reopen for in-person, hybrid learning for students on Monday, October 26, 2020.

While proceeding with an abundance of caution, we have worked closely with the Onondaga County Health Department to identity this individual's contacts at the school. It was determined that any potential exposure was very limited. The Onondaga County Health Department will reach out to all contacts and advise on the need to quarantine and arrange testing for those exposed. If you do not hear from the school district or County Health Department, your child is not impacted.

Please take this notice, and our actions as a representation that we will act swiftly to and with an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of students, staff and all members of our community to the fullest extent. Again, school will be open for in-person, hybrid learning on Monday, October 26, 2020.
