High school student tests positive for COVID-19; school will switch to remote learning through Oct. 30On Oct. 16, Jordan-Elbridge received notice from the Onondaga County Health Department that a Jordan-Elbridge High School student tested positive for COVID-19. This student, like so many of our students, is active in school life and co-curricular activities. As you can imagine, the contact tracing list was extensive.
Therefore, in consultation with the Onondaga County Health Department, Jordan-Elbridge High School will switch to all remote learning beginning Monday, Oct. 19, through Friday, Oct. 30. In-school learning will resume at the high school on Monday, Nov. 2.
The Onondaga County Health Department will be contacting all staff and students under quarantine this weekend. There will be no high school sports or band on Monday as the district will need time to cross reference the quarantine list with the sports and band rosters. If the teams and band can continue, we will support them.
Elbridge Elementary, JEDIS, and Jordan-Elbridge Middle School will resume as normal on Monday, Oct. 19.
Please know that student and staff safety is our top priority and we are taking these measures to keep everyone well. Hang in there everybody, we will prevail through all of this together.
-Superintendent James Froio
