The New York State Department of Public Health has created requirements for COVID-19 testing in schools in the event that the community has been targeted as a micro-cluster. Such designations are based on the number of positive coronavirus cases within the community. In the lowest level of this measurement, the yellow zone, schools will be required to test 20% of their students and staff who are at school on a regular basis.
In preparation for the possibility that Trinity could be included in a yellow zone, we have developed this survey to ask parents if they would allow the school to test their students for COVID-19. This testing would be administered by our school nurses using a rapid test provided by the NYS Department of Health. The test involves swabbing the nose and it takes approximately 15 minutes to develop the results.
Please respond to each of the questions in the survey. If you have any questions, please contact our school office at 315-769-5911. Click here to take the survey.
