  • Update on COVID Testing Protocols

    Posted by Bonnie Birdsall on 1/21/2022

    Dear CVSD PreK-8 Community,

    Since we last wrote to you on Monday,  we’ve been working on systems to incorporate the new protocols that will best support our students and staff. Some of you have shared further questions about how we will implement the new guidance from the Agency of Education directing schools districts to stop contact tracing and adjust current testing protocols. For us, that means shifting from Test to Stay to Test at Home. 

    We hope that this letter outlines the next steps as clearly as possible and that it provides reassurance to staff and families in yet another time of change about how we can mitigate the spread of the virus. While we have received some test kits to distribute, we’ll need more to fully implement the program. We are communicating with the Agency of Education and the Department of Health to secure more test kits. 

    This letter is for parents/caregivers of students in our PreK-8 schools. For those who also have CVU students, please continue to follow the protocol previously outlined by the school. 

    Thank you for taking the time to read the letter, which is posted on our blog in order to make it accessible to all. 

    Have a wonderful weekend- stay warm, stay safe,

    Rene Sanchez, Superintendent

We thank you for your attention to all of the details outlined in our newsletter. I am regularly in contact with the Agency of Education (AOE) and Champlain Valley Superintendents to coordinate and roll out recent changes in guidance. We also want to thank you for doing your part to stay safe and healthy amidst this most recent surge in cases.

    Please see the full letter and more in our most recent newsletter.

    Thank you,

    Rene Sanchez, Superintendent
