Keeping kids healthy


Nov. 13: We realize our parents and families have a lot of questions regarding Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement on Monday that parts of Monroe County are now in a Yellow (Precautionary) Zone. Spencerport is fortunate not to be included in this zone at this time, however, we must all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19, flatten the curve once again, and ensure that schools and businesses remain open. If we are designated in a Yellow Zone, testing will not be initiated until the community and parents are made aware and have time to complete the consent form. The rapid COVID-19 test is a non-invasive nasal swab that only goes into the nostril. The Monroe County Department of Public Health has provided a video of Dr. Mendoza demonstrating the test on himself to show students, parents, and the community how easy it is, and we’ve posted this video on our website at this link, https://www.spencerportschools.org/news/what_s_new/mendoza_demonstrates_school_rapid_test.

 

Since our last email, area superintendents met with Monroe County Department of Public Health Dr. Michael Mendoza, who answered our questions, provided clarifications, and offered additional guidance. I want our Munn families who live in Gates to know that I specifically asked the question about this section of our district and any impact to our school. Even if you live in a Yellow Zone no testing is currently required.  He assured me that Munn Elementary is not considered to be in this zone. 
 

We must reiterate that, because we did not receive this designation, we are not required to test at this time. However, we must be prepared, especially if we cannot control the spread outside of school. All the positive cases associated with our district are traced to external social gatherings. It has been noted by Dr. Mendoza and his team that are schools are some of the safest places in our community due to mask wearing and social distancing requirements.  
 

We also want to make the community aware the Monroe County Department of Public Health notified us of 4 cases of COVID-19. One case at Spencerport High School, one case at Terry Taylor Elementary School, and two cases at Cosgrove Middle School.  One is a staff member associated the Cosgrove Middle School and the other is an unrelated student. The contact tracing team did not identify any close contacts in our school and the MCPDH does not recommend any additional action by the schools or district. The infected individuals have been placed in isolation and will not return to school until they have received clearance from the MCDPH. 

As a community let’s do are part to keep schools and businesses open by using our three Spencerport three Spencerport Ranger W’s. 

Wear a mask 

Wash your hand 

Watch your distance 

Thank you,

Dan Milgate
Superintendent of Schools




Nov. 12: The Monroe County Department of Public Health has informed us that two students from Spencerport High School and one student from Terry Taylor Elementary have tested positive for COVID-19.

After completing its investigation it was determined there was no risk of exposure within the schools. The infected individuals have been placed into isolation and will not return to school until released by county health officials. The MCDPH is not recommending any further action by the district.

Spencerport is fortunate not to be designated in the Yellow Zone at this time, however, we must all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19, flatten the curve once again, and ensure that schools and businesses remain open. Please wear a mask, remain socially distanced, and avoid social gatherings.

As a school community we recognize the importance of transparency with our community, families and students. We are continuing to receive guidance from the MCDPH, and will certainly share any new information or developments with our families in the coming days. 




Nov. 10:
 The Monroe County Department of Public Health has informed us that three students from Spencerport High School have tested positive for COVID-19. After completing its investigation it was determined there was no risk of exposure within the schools. The infected individuals have been placed into isolation and will not return to school until released by county health officials. The MCDPH is not recommending any further action by the district.

While Spencerport has not been identified as a Yellow (Precautionary) Zone at this time, we understand our responsibility as a district to remain informed, follow all local and state guidance, and continue planning if our community status changes at any point.

New York State’s announcement yesterday has understandably resulted in many follow-up questions, especially with neighboring areas being deemed a “Yellow Zone”. As we await further guidance from the MCDPH and New York State about testing in schools related to the Governor’s Micro-Cluster strategy, here is what we do know so far:

     • Parents will need to formally consent to student testing.
     • Testing requirements only pertain to in-person students and staff.
     • Testing will need to be conducted weekly for school districts in the Yellow Zone and districts will be required to rotate students and staff testing to meet the 20% mark each week.

The MCDPH has advised schools they are not the cause of our region’s Micro-Cluster designation and that schools are some of our safest places. Nevertheless, they have informed districts that we must abide by the testing requirements in order to remain open for in-person learning when in a Yellow Zone. General information about this designation can be found in the following FAQ document: Cluster Action Initiative FAQs.

We again urge our families to remain vigilant and recommit to mask wearing, social distancing and handwashing to decrease community spread of this virus.

As always, we will continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.



Nov. 9: As you are likely aware, the number of COVID-19 cases across the state and within Monroe County are rising at a steady rate. This rise in rate has been reflected in our own Spencerport learning community over the weekend, as the Monroe County Department of Public Health confirmed that we have nine new COVID-positive cases. The cases reported are five students and one teacher at the high school, two middle school students, and one Bernabi elementary student. The infected individuals have been placed in isolation and will not return to school until released by county health officials. Any individuals who are at risk of exposure outside of school will have been notified already by the MCDPH and placed into mandatory quarantine. The MCDPH is not recommending any further action by the district.


In response to the statewide increases, Governor Andrew Cuomo has outlined his “Micro-Cluster” strategy metrics guidelines for areas with high numbers of cases and infection rates. This strategy includes defining an area and placing that area into a focus zone: yellow, orange, and red. For information regarding the New York “Micro-Cluster” strategy please visit our website or review the attached file from the state .  

While Spencerport was not listed as a Yellow Zone as of this afternoon, our district is working hard to establish how we would meet these requirements should this status change. Testing 20% of our in-person population would obviously present its challenges, and we are working with the MCDPH to proactively ensure we have plans in place to implement should the need arise.

Please remember to wear a mask, wash your hands, and practice social distancing even when in small groups. Your continued vigilance can help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Thank you.




Nov. 6: We wanted to provide our families with an update to our message last evening on the two COVID-positive cases at the high school.


At this point in its investigation, the MCDPH does not believe any students or staff were exposed to the infected individuals at school. However, contact tracers have learned of a number of gatherings outside of school, including several Halloween parties, which put students at risk of infection. These students have been notified by the MCDPH and have been placed in mandatory quarantine. They will not return to in-person learning until cleared by county health officials.


Additionally, we want to thank those students and families who have worked with the Monroe County Department of Public Health on contact tracing. Truly, these investigative efforts are critical to controlling the spread of COVID-19, and keeping our learning community safe and healthy. 


As a follow up to the press release from the MCDPH regarding social gatherings in Spencerport and Webster last weekend, we have since learned of several other such gatherings, and we are working closely with the MCDPH to effectively identify, isolate, and quarantine individuals who may have been exposed. At this time, we are waiting for testing updates from the county, as well as any necessary response. If you, your child, or someone you know attended a social gathering last weekend, it is imperative that you contact the MCDPH at COVID19@monroecounty.gov with any information. This information is kept confidential in accordance with all HIPAA privacy rules and regulations.


Finally, we must reiterate that your actions significantly impact every single person on campus. We continue to urge students and families to help control the spread of the virus by adhering to the following guidelines at all times:


1.When interacting with individuals who are not part of your household, wear a mask and stay six feet apart.
2. Avoid large gatherings, especially inside a home or other enclosure.
3. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, stay home and consult with your health care provider.


These guidelines can prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our schools remain open.  If everyone does their part, we can finish the 2020 year strong, together, and most importantly, healthy.




Nov. 5: The Monroe County Department of Public Health has informed the district that two members of the Varsity/Junior Varsity Cross Country team have tested positive for COVID-19. We have also learned that several other members of the team are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and are being tested for the virus.

The MCDPH has placed the infected individuals into isolation. Coaches and all remaining members of the team, even those without symptoms, are being placed into mandatory quarantine while the MCDPH initiates its contact tracing investigation. In addition, we are canceling the cross country meet scheduled for this weekend.

We are working closely with county health officials to determine if there are any other members of our school community who are at risk of exposure. We will provide updates as they become available.

Oct. 8: COVID case at the HS and update from SCSD medical director


The Monroe County Department of Public Health has informed us that another student at Spencerport High School has tested positive today for COVID-19. After completion of its investigation, the MCDPH determined there was no risk of exposure within the school.

The MCDPH noted that this case, along with three others reported this week are connected to a single social gathering outside of school on Sept. 25. All four infected individuals are in isolation and will not return to school until released by county health officials. The MCDPH has also contacted other individuals known to be at the gathering on Sept. 25, as well as any other individuals who might be at risk of exposure outside of school, and placed them into mandatory quarantine. These individuals will also not return to school until released by county health officials.

As the Spencerport community navigates through the COVID-19 pandemic it is important for families, students and the community to recognize the importance of contact tracing. Spencerport Central School District has been working tirelessly to provide the names of laboratory confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 to the Monroe County Department of Public Health. This collaboration helps to ensure the health and safety of our students. It is also imperative we enlist the help of parents and families to cooperate openly and fully with contact tracers from the MCDPH.

Contact tracing is the process of identifying all people who are considered a close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. The MCDPH identifies a close contact as someone who was within 6 foot for 15 consecutive minutes with one person not wearing a mask. The MCDPH starts contact tracing two days prior to the onset of symptoms or two days prior to the COVID-19 test if asymptomatic. It is crucial for families, students, and the community to be as forthright and thorough as possible if you receive a call from contact tracers. Providing honest and appropriate information will allow them to quarantine and isolate all potentially infected individuals, reduce the spread of COVID-19, and avoid any possibility for closing school due to an increase in positive cases. Thank you for your continued diligence and support as we strive to do what is best for all of our families, students, and community during these challenging times.

Sincerely,
Danielle Adam FNP-C




Oct. 6: The Monroe County Department of Public Health has informed the district that a student who attends Spencerport High School has been diagnosed with COVID-19. After completing its investigation, the MCDPH has determined that this individual did not expose others while in school.

Oct. 5: new COVID case at the HS and update from SCSD medical director:

As I’m sure you are aware, the incidence of COVID-19 in New York State has gone up since the reopening of schools. We continue to work directly with the Monroe County Department of Public Health with each of these positive cases and collaborate on the appropriate steps to take moving forward. This includes a new case that we wanted to share this afternoon.

The Monroe County Department of Public Health has informed the district that a student who attends Spencerport High School has been diagnosed with COVID-19. After completing its investigation, the Monroe County Department of Public Health has determined that this individual did not expose others while in school. Any individuals who are at risk of exposure outside of school will have been notified by MCDPH and placed into mandatory quarantine. The infected individual has been placed in isolation and will not return to the school until released by county health officials. The MCDPH is not recommending any further action by the district.

We have also been receiving questions about the process the MCDPH is following to identify close contacts of confirmed positive cases and rationale for keeping school/classrooms open. Contact tracing for a COVID positive individual begins two days prior to the onset of his or her symptoms. The Monroe Department of Public Health defines a close contact to be anyone within 6 feet for 15 consecutive minutes where at least 1 of the 2 people are unmasked. If an individual is asymptomatic (no symptoms) and tests positive, the contact tracing will begin two days prior to the COVID testing.

The reason there has been little risk of exposure in school settings is because of strict adherence to mask wearing and social distancing. So far, in all but one positive case in Monroe County involving a student or school staff member, MCDPH has traced the likely point of exposure to a situation that occurred outside of a school setting. The cases are largely connected to family members, social gatherings and other recreational activities including travel.

Through our mandatory mask wearing policy and social distancing policy we are preventing COVID-19 exposures and contacts during school. It is imperative that we as a community do our part and continue to remain vigilant with our mask wearing, handwashing and social distancing in school and outside of school to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Sincerely,

Danielle Adam
District Medical Director
