Update from the School Nurse

Dear WAJ Families,
Due to the ongoing presence of the Covid-19 pandemic, Windham-Ashland-Jewett Central School District is continuing with recommendations and policies set forth by the New York State Department of Health.

If your child/student is showing symptoms (whether vaccinated or unvaccinated), which are consistent with Covid-19, we require one of the following in order to attend/return to school:
 A negative Covid test (rapid or molecular) HOME TESTS ARE NOT ACCEPTED
 MD clearance with an alternate diagnosis
 10 days of quarantine
 The student should be symptom free Furthermore, all medical and test results need to be reviewed prior to your child’s return to school.

The student cannot take WAJ transportation until you receive clearance from the nurse or school administrator via either email or phone.
These are very stressful times for everyone. We work diligently daily to ensure everyone’s wellbeing. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call or email me anytime.
