Dear Members of the Fort Plain Central School Community:
We were pleased to welcome back our students, faculty and staff for a new school year.
To keep everyone safe and healthy, please be reminded that students, faculty and staff should stay home when they have signs of any illness (cough, fever, loss of taste and smell, cold/flu symptoms, etc.), and they should contact their healthcare provider if symptoms do not resolve after 48 hours. Individuals may be asked to provide a doctor’s note to return to school.
If an individual has been tested for COVID-19, they should remain home until the test results are confirmed negative.
If a student, faculty, or staff is diagnosed as being COVID-19 positive, before returning to school, they must satisfy isolation protocols (typically 10 days) and have improving symptoms. They also must be fever-free for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication, per the New York State Department of Health.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Interim Superintendent of Schools
