These three individuals will not be allowed to return to school/work until medically cleared to do so. Based on the Suffolk County Department of Health’s requirements of masks, social distancing, air filter ratings and classroom density, full building closures do NOT need to take place.

The district continues to report positive cases to the Suffolk County Department of Health and to New York State; they will appear on the State’s COVID-19 dashboard.

Please know that we will continue to diligently deep clean and sanitize all of our buildings each night after in-person learning. For those who use district transportation, buses are cleaned after every morning and afternoon route by our transportation providers.

As we enter cold and flu season, it is important to continue to take all necessary precautions such as staying home when sick, coughing/sneezing into the crook of your elbow, washing your hands frequently, staying socially distant and wearing a mask. Thank you and please stay safe.

Two William Floyd High School Students (Members of Same Household) Test Positive for COVID-19, No Closure

The district learned today that two William Floyd High School students who are members of the same household have tested positive for COVID-19. The students, members of Group A who last attended school on Monday, October 26, will not be permitted to return to school until medically cleared to do so. The Suffolk County Department of Health (SCDOH) has determined that no classes or teachers need to be quarantined due to classroom density, MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating for the air filter, social distancing and the use of masks. As a result, a school closure does NOT need to take place. However, the two students rode the bus and the SCDOH has determined that the bus driver and the 11 other students aboard that particular bus will be placed in a mandatory quarantine. All of the students and their families have been contacted. The bus has been temporarily pulled from service and will be thoroughly cleansed and disinfected.

Please know that the district will continue to diligently deep clean and sanitize all of our buildings each night after in-person learning. For those who use district transportation, buses are also cleaned after morning and afternoon routes by our transportation companies. As we enter cold and flu season, it is imperative to continue to take all necessary precautions such as staying home when sick, coughing/sneezing into the crook of your elbow, washing your hands frequently, staying socially distant and wearing a mask.
