Signs of Illness

NYSDOH came out with updated Covid-19 guidelines as of 10/01/2020:

When a student calls in sick with potential Covid like symptoms they need to be referred to Call their Doctor to Report Their Symptoms 1st, hopefully the doctor will see them in person or via telehealth. We need a note stating that the doctor has either:

1) Evaluated the student and determined that a Covid test is needed; a negative Covid test is also need to be obtained and submitted to school prior to return of the student.


2) Evaluated the student and determined a Covid is not suspected and a test is not recommended and an Alternative Diagnosis is given (ex. Chronic conditions or laboratory confirmed illness- strep, flu).

If a student's doctor is not willing to see the students they can go to a testing site that will evaluate and test the students. Click here for a list of Covid test sites. 

  • The North Syracuse Central School District will educate staff prior to opening schools to observe students or other staff members for signs of any types of illness such as: flush cheeks, rapid or difficulty breathing (without recent physical activity), fatigue and/or irritability; and frequent use of the bathroom. Students or staff exhibiting these signs with no explanation should be sent to the school Health office for assessment by the school nurse.
  • As part of regular communication with families, the District will send weekly reminders of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Parents will continually be reminded of CDC Guidance regarding when to keep students at home; and 
  • Clear signs will be posted throughout all buildings advising students and staff of the symptoms (of COVID-19) to look for when deciding if it is necessary to stay home.
