    Summary of Remote Learning


     Testing & Contact Tracing

    Any individual who screens positive for COVID-19 exposure or symptoms must be immediately sent home with instructions to contact their health care provider for assessment and testing. Our district will immediately contact the Chautauqua County Department of Health, who will direct the district on a case-by-case basis. The school district will not administer or be responsible for any COVID-19 testing. The district will assist the Chautauqua County Department of Health with contact tracing if so directed.

    The New York and Chautauqua County Departments of Health have provided the following charts to help our school community understand their procedures and protocols:

    CCDOH P-12 Guidance
    Health Screening Flow Chart
    NYSDOH Flow Chart - Can My Child Come to School?
    Isolation and Quarantine Flow Chart


    Plan Development

    The Fredonia Central School District Re-opening Committee has outlined our plan document in accordance with established and recommended procedures, practices and safeguards from the following agencies:

    • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) CDC Guidance for K-12 Schools
    • Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines 
    • New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) guidelines 
    • New York State Education Department (NYSED) guidelines 
    • New York State’s “New York Forward” guidelines 

    Based on the aforementioned guidance, we have developed procedures related to the Operations and Instruction for three scenarios: In-person, Hybrid and Remote Learning. With the ever-changing nature of this pandemic, the committee has developed a plan to allow us to switch learning modalities if and when necessary. 

    Each phase of reopening; In-Person, Hybrid and Remote, focuses on maintaining safety for all while providing a quality education for our learners.

    The plan document contains guidance, procedures, protocols and/or other measures which explain practices that need to be considered in order to maximize the health and safety of students and staff. 

    This plan was developed in collaboration with key stakeholders from all constituent groups, including: 

    • Fredonia Teachers’ Association Members
    • Fredonia School Support Staff Association
    • Fredonia Civil Service Employees Association
    • District Nurse
    • Parent and student involvement via survey and membership on reopening committees
    • Board of Education
