Testing at North Warren

Testing at North Warren:

If you are interested in participating in our screening testing process done weekly in the nurses suite, please see our website for the form to register HERE and CONTACT, Sue Griffen x705

If you are interested in the school nurse being able to do a PCR test for your child, or a staff member before being sent home if you come down ill at school, please see our website for the form to register HERE.

This is how it will work if ill at school and you are registered:

- Student or staff member is ill at school, the nurse will call the parent or speak with the staff member.
- If that individual is signed up for our PCR Quadrant testing, the nurse will do the test (the test involves a swab of the gum lines on your lower jaw and it is sent out to a lab at Upstate Medical in Syracuse under the Warren Co. Dept of Health License to test).
- The student or staff member will then be sent home immediately to quarantine.
- In ~48 hours you and our nurse will receive the results.
- If you are negative for COVID and symptoms are resolving, you can return immediately.
If you are positive for COVID, you will have to remain out (nurse will tell you when to return– using the five day process).

Updated Message from Michele French–Quarantine and Vaccination status

The following is an update to my notice from Sunday, 1-9-2022 directly from the NYSDOH, Interim Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett.

“We are providing the following clarifications to assist school leadership in continuing to provide in-person instruction. NYSDOH recognizes the CDC priority of safely providing in-person instruction, as well as the importance of multi-layer mitigation strategies in place in K-12 school settings.”

1. Masking and Distancing: Both masking and distancing continue to be required in school settings.

2. Quarantine (for Individuals who are exposed to someone with COVID-19):

a. In-classroom activities: All fully vaccinated* individuals (students, teachers, and staff), who have been exposed to an individual with COVID-19 may continue to attend or work at school, regardless of booster status, while quarantined outside of school. This recommendation continues previous guidance in place prior to January 4. Continued attendance applies only to participation in classroom activities and taking the bus to and from school. *Fully vaccinated is defined as two weeks after the receipt of either two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of Johnson and Johnson vaccine or full course of any other recognized vaccine.

b. Extracurricular or after school activities: Individuals 12 years and older who are eligible for a booster but not boosted, and who have been exposed to an individual with COVID-19, cannot participate in extracurricular or after school activities and, aside from school attendance for instruction and bus travel, must adhere to a 5-day quarantine at home. Fully vaccinated 5-11-year-old children are not eligible for a booster and have no further restrictions.

c. Students, teachers, and staff who are not vaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series who came into close contact with someone with COVID-19 should quarantine for at least 5 days (day 0 through day 5) after their last close contact.

d. Isolation: Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate for a minimum of 5 days (regardless of vaccination status). If symptoms persist, further isolation will be required; otherwise, they may attend or work at school after the 5-day isolation.

Again, thank you for your cooperation as we continue to navigate this school year to remain open for in-person instruction.

Sincerely,
Michele French

PREPAY FOR FOOD SERVICES

  • With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, North Warren Central School’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time.  This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called mySchoolBucks.com.  By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends. 

    Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report.  This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and or lunch within the past thirty days.

For more information and to access these services simply click on the Food Service link and choose Payment Information.
