Dear Union Springs CSD families:

We learned that five of our students at Union Springs Middle School, 1 student at the High School, 3 middle school staff members, and 1 AJ Smith staff member, are subject to a mandatory quarantine as a result of contact tracing, due to their interactions outside of school with individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.  The Cayuga County Department of Health will be supporting these students and staff members in the coming days, and unless these individuals test positive themselves, the Cayuga County Health Department protocol states that additional contract tracing at school is not necessary at this time.

The Cayuga County Health Department determines if contact tracing, and/or quarantining is warranted.  Our district’s obligation to our school community is to support contact tracing by providing information if requested by the health department.

I share this information in an effort to be transparent regarding COVID-19 and its impact on our schools. We will continue to clean and disinfect our buildings, and encourage all of our students to continue to wear face coverings when social distancing cannot be maintained.  Please do not come to school if you are experiencing any symptoms.

If you have any questions regarding our COVID-19 procedures, please check our website under the Reopening Plans and Updates & COVID Protocol Information header. Thank you for your continued support as we work to keep our schools open and our students safe.
 
Sincerely,
                                                                                                        Jarett Powers

Dear Union Springs CSD Families:

This week 5 students tested positive for the corona virus (4 at the HS, and 1 at the Middle School).  Additionally, 13 students were quarantined as a result of their contact with individuals outside of school who tested positive for the Corona virus (3 at the HS, 2 at the Middle School, and 8 at AJ Smith).  The Cayuga County Health Department has cleared our return to in-person instruction for next week.  We will resume in-person instruction on January 20, 2021.  For our secondary students, January 20th is a B-Day.  

I want to thank all of you for your support, help, and cooperation.  These past few weeks have been difficult for so many folks and your efforts to keep our students engaged in their studies has not gone unnoticed.  Please continue to follow public health guidelines in the days and weeks to come.  We know that our return to in-person instruction will mean the return of contact tracing and quarantines; please help us stay open by having your student stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms. We look forward to seeing our students next week! Thank you again! 

Sincerely,
Jarett Powers
Superintendent of Schools

We need substitute cleaners! If you are interested, please contact Valerie Castiglia at vcastiglia@unionspringscsd.org or 315-889-4100

At this time, any new elementary entrants to our district will be assigned to remote learning until space opens for additional in-person classroom instruction. The secondary grades have very few in-person spaces available, and new entrants may be assigned to remote learning as well. We have tried our best to meet everyone's requests for both in-person and remote learning, but we simply do not have the flexibility to keep up with an influx of new students who are now requesting in-person instruction.
