To the South Seneca Community: We know that many have been following the news reports over this past weekend about potential changes to the mandatory mask mandates for public schools in New York State, and the suggestion that these rules could change as early as this week. Please understand that no matter what changes might go into effect this month, the Seneca County Health Department has indicated that the rules for contact tracing will NOT change, so that anyone who remains unvaccinated or symptomatic will still be subject to mandatory quarantine if they are in contact with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19. At this stage in the school year, we know that a quarantine would likely keep individuals from all yearend activities. With this in mind, and with no strong reliable means to identify the vaccinated from the unvaccinated, South Seneca will operate our indoors, in-person instructional model with the same expectations for masking that have served us so well throughout the school year up to this point. All our protocols will be revisited for adjustments beginning June 25, and may very well change in response to new state guidelines after that time. It is also worth a reminder that we have been using our outdoor spaces throughout the spring for “mask breaks,” so as long as everyone pays attention to distancing, South Seneca students can remove masks while outdoors. As always, thank you to our community for the cooperation it has taken to endure a difficult 2020-21 school year. We are all looking forward to relief on the way as we move forward into the summer months. Stephen J. Parker Zielinski Superintendent of Schools

South Seneca received information today from the Seneca County Health Department that a high school student has tested positive for COVID-19. The student last attended school in person on Wednesday, March 24. As with all cases in our school community, we collaborate with the Health Department to facilitate contact tracing and any necessary quarantines. We also collaborate with the Department to make determinations about any closures that might be appropriate. Anyone who is to complete required steps as a result of potential exposure is being contacted by the Health Department or by the school district for instructions. This case will not require us to shut down any classrooms, so our regular in-person schedule can continue to operate uninterrupted. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. As always, we urge our community to continue to take all precautions as the pandemic continues. Our success and ability to remain open for in-person instruction is dependent on everyone doing their part. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

Neither of these cases will require us to shut down any programs or classrooms, so our regular in-person schedules can continue to operate uninterrupted. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. As always, we urge our community to continue to take all precautions as the pandemic continues. Our success and ability to remain open for in-person instruction is dependent on everyone doing their part. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

This afternoon South Seneca received information from the Seneca County Health Department that an elementary school student had tested positive for COVID-19. The student began exhibiting symptoms on Friday January 22, and last attended school in person on Wednesday, January 20. As with all cases in our school community, we are collaborating with the Health Department to facilitate contact tracing and any necessary quarantines. We also collaborate with the Department to make determinations about any closures that might be appropriate. Anyone who is to complete required steps as a result of potential exposure is being contacted by the Health Department or by the school district for instructions. This new case is going to add to the number of students and staff who are assigned to mandatory quarantine, but will not require us to extend the already announced week of fully remote instruction for the Elementary School beyond Friday, January 29. We are still scheduled to resume in-person instruction in Interlaken on Monday, February 1. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. We continue to urge the community to take all precautions while the pandemic persists in Seneca County. As we have been emphasizing in previous notices, this is especially important during the winter months while contagion for any coronavirus is at its peak. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

This afternoon South Seneca received information from the Seneca County Health Department that two of our elementary school students had tested positive for COVID-19. The two students are members of different grade levels, and last attended school in person on Wednesday, January 20. As with all cases in our school community, we are collaborating with the Health Department to facilitate contact tracing and any necessary quarantines. We also collaborate with the Department to make determinations about any closures that might be appropriate. Anyone who is to complete required steps as a result of potential exposure is being contacted by the Health Department or by the school district for instructions. Unfortunately, these two cases will result in the mandatory quarantine of approximately 80 people, including about a dozen staff members. With this period extending into next weekend, the Elementary School will shift to fully remote instruction for the upcoming week, January 25-29. We expect to be back to in-person instruction on Monday, February 1. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. We continue to urge the community to take all precautions while the pandemic persists in Seneca County.

This morning South Seneca received information from the Seneca County Health Department that one of our middle school students had tested positive for COVID-19. The student is part of the Cayuga cohort, and last attended school in person on Tuesday, January 19. As with all cases in our school community, we are collaborating with the Health Department to facilitate contact tracing and any necessary quarantines. We also collaborate with the Department to make determinations about any closures that might be appropriate. Anyone who is to complete required steps as a result of potential exposure is being contacted by the Health Department or by the school district for instructions. While the contact tracing in this case will not cause a closure of the school, it will result in a large number of students, and some staff, being forced to quarantine. The Cayuga cohort of this grade level will operate remotely while the quarantines are in effect. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. As we shared in yesterday’s announcement, we continue to urge the community to take all precautions while the pandemic persists in Seneca County. This is especially important during the winter months while contagion for any coronavirus is at its peak. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

This morning South Seneca received information from the Seneca County Health Department that one of our high school students had tested positive for COVID-19. The student attends a TST BOCES program full time, and last attended in-person on Thursday, January 14. As with all cases in our school community, we are collaborating with the Health Department to facilitate contact tracing and any necessary quarantines. We also collaborate with the Department to make determinations about any closures that might be appropriate. Anyone who is to complete required steps as a result of potential exposure is being contacted by the Health Department or by the school district for instructions. In this case, the contacts will certainly result in a number of mandatory quarantines, but South Seneca will not be needing to close any of our in-person programs. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. We join all our colleagues, both in the school setting and out, to continue to urge everyone to take the risks associated with the pandemic seriously, and to do all you can to minimize your own chances of exposure to the virus. This includes diligent wearing of face coverings in public spaces, attention to social distancing, and good regular hand hygiene, along with the use of caution when planning any necessary travel or gatherings. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

Just two days before our holiday break, we at South Seneca now have over 80 members of our staff and student population in mandatory quarantines as a result of contact tracing related to our three recent cases. In addition to these, we are informed of nearly thirty others in the school community who are now either COVID-positive themselves, or quarantined as a result of exposure to someone who is positive. As we have been communicating since before Thanksgiving, when groups of staff and students are forced to quarantine at home for two weeks, it creates a substantial disruption to each of their own lives, and to the school program. Those in quarantine, again, have broken no rules, and have only been caught up in the tracing process. They go into quarantine to contain potential spread, which is necessary, but disheartening and inconvenient. We know from all evidence that once again, there is a reasonable concern that those numbers may spike in the period immediately following the holidays. As a precautionary measure designed to prevent potential large numbers of quarantines into the new year, South Seneca will shift to a temporary fully remote model for instruction in the week after New Year’s Day, January 4 through January 8. Students should prepare for the week as a school week, and not as an extension of the vacation. Teachers will be in touch to arrange a class schedule. Contrary to the week we went remote after Thanksgiving, there is still a possibility for us to operate small groups of organized activities, such as the highly controlled athletic workouts, etc. Coaches will be in touch with athletes about those arrangements. We understand that being fully remote can pose a burden on working families, and we encourage those with concerns to reach out to our offices for help. This measure is intended to prevent an even longer burden, as families in quarantine have communicated to us. If the numbers of positive cases and widespread quarantines were to reach a critical threshold, the shift to remote learning could keep us out of the buildings for weeks at a time, which is what we’d like to avoid. We urge our community to continue to follow all guidelines for staying safe, and we wish full recovery for those having already tested positive. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

On Saturday, South Seneca received information from the Seneca County Health Department that two of our elementary school students had tested positive for COVID-19. The two students are members of two different grade levels, and last attended in-person on Tuesday, December 15. As with all cases in our school community, we are collaborating with the Health Department to facilitate contact tracing and any necessary quarantines. We also collaborate with the Department to make determinations about any closures that might be appropriate. Anyone who is to complete required steps as a result of potential exposure is being contacted by the Health Department or by the school district for instructions. In this case, because of the timing of the onset of symptoms, contact tracing has resulted in a very large number of quarantines for both students and staff in Interlaken. Out of an abundance of caution, the Elementary School will move to a fully remote model of instruction for the three days leading up to our break: Monday, December 21 through Wednesday, December 23. The Middle-High School was not impacted in this case and will continue as planned with our hybrid model this week. We will revisit our status over the next several days and will communicate any further adjustments to our school calendar as they are decided. On Monday, the district will work to distribute Chromebooks to elementary students as needed for participation in classes. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. We join all our colleagues, both in the school setting and out, to continue to urge everyone to take the risks associated with the pandemic seriously, and to do all you can to minimize your own chances of exposure to the virus.

Even during the pandemic, South Seneca has been supportive of college students who are studying education, as they must gather field experience in classrooms as a requirement on their way to their degrees. Today, we were informed that one of the college students who spent time in our Middle-High School building last week tested positive for COVID-19. This student observed all appropriate safety measures while in our building, but it is likely that those who had extended exposure time will be subject to quarantine as the contact tracing process around this case is completed. The last time the student was in the building was Friday, December 11. In accordance with our established protocols, we are in close contact with the Seneca County Health Department to make all determinations about any closures that might be appropriate on a case-by-case basis. No portion of our program will need to be closed as a result of this case, although some quarantines of some individuals is expected. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. As the holiday season and colder weather approaches, and while infection rates are increasing over the last few weeks, we continue to urge our school community to take all necessary precautions. Please heed the warnings about indoor gatherings, wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, and seeing regularly to hand hygiene. Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

November 16, 2020 This past weekend South Seneca received information that one of our elementary school students had tested positive for COVID-19. In this case, the last attendance day for the student was Monday, November 9. We are in contact with the student’s family, and are hopeful that symptoms remain mild. In accordance with our established protocols, we immediately notified the Seneca County Health Department to make all determinations about any closures that might be appropriate on a case-by-case basis, and if the report means that contact tracing or quarantines are expected. In this case, because the student has not been in attendance since last week Monday, the Seneca County Health Department has advised that it is not necessary to close any aspect of our current in-person instructional schedule. The Department has determined that the student was not infectious on that date. We know the community understands that personal identifying information about those testing positive is protected under privacy laws, so we are unable to share those particular details. As the holiday season and colder weather approaches, and while infection rates are increasing over the last few weeks, we continue to urge our school community to take all necessary precautions.
