Canisteo-Greenwood Central: Several Students Need To Quarantine

November 6, 2020

From CG Central:

Good afternoon, this is Tom Crook, Superintendent at Canisteo-Greenwood. Today we learned that 2 of our elementary students have tested positive for COVID 19. These 2 students were already quarantined this past week due to being in contact with a positive case last weekend. However, through the investigation with the county health department, one of the positive students was symptomatic during school on October 28th and October 29th, which will affect the classroom and a bus. Based on the current quarantining requirements; an elementary classroom, 6 bus students, and 4 staff members will be required to quarantine for most of next week. We continue to look at our procedures and how we can minimize the need for a quarantine in the event of a symptomatic individual. Since the 2 students were quarantined this week and were not in school, there will be no need for the District to close for contact tracing. We will remain open. We thank you for your patience and your continuous support of our district through these troubling times. Yours in service, Thomas J. Crook Superintendent.
