COVID-19 Return to School Protocols:

What to do if:

  • If your child has been identified with symptoms
  • If your child has a pre-existing condition
  • If your child presents with COVID-19-like symptoms and your child tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days or your child has received their final vaccination.

Quarantine Protocols/Guidelines:

As the North Colonie Central School District did last year, we are following the guidance of the Albany County Department of Health (ACDOH), and we are grateful for their ongoing counsel and partnership. This year Albany County, in conjunction with other counties in the region, set forth more targeted quarantine guidelines based on current CDC guidance. With each positive case, a team of district professionals reviews the algorithms and protocols to determine contacts of a positive case. Those contacts are then given to the ACDOH who issues quarantine orders as appropriate.

  • Classroom
  • Cafeteria
  • Transportation
  • Athletics
