Effective November 8th, HCS has adopted the new Test to Stay protocol as approved by Steuben County Public Health. This protocol allows a staff member or student that is contact traced to a school positive case to attend school with a daily negative Covid rapid test. This test MUST happen before school and the staff member or student is still otherwise in quarantine for the remainder of the day per Public Health. If your child is contact traced as a part of a school positive, the school nurse or principal will reach out to you to discuss this option. It is certainly not mandatory to participate but we hope this new protocol will help keep health students in school and be less disruptive to our families. Our current protocol with details can be found at the following link;-Hammondsport Test to Stay Protocol 11/15/21
