EARLY WARNING SIGNS/CLOSURE The North Syracuse Central School District will collaborate with the Onondaga County Health Department to determine the parameters, conditions or metrics (e.g., increased absenteeism or increased illness in school community) that serve as early warning signs that positive COVID-19 cases may be increasing beyond an acceptable level.

The District will consider closing school if absentee rates impact the ability of the school to operate safely. North Syracuse Central School District may choose to modify operations prior to closing to help mitigate a rise in cases. The North Syracuse Central School District will consult our medical director and/or the local department of health when making such decisions.
