COVID-19 Action Steps

Action steps when COVID-19 cases are reported to the school

Any notifications Brockport Central School receives from the Monroe County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) will be emailed to staff and families, then posted on our website. Please be sure your contact information is up-to-date with your school's main office or the Registrar's Office.

School coordination of contact tracing

Below you will find frequently asked questions posted by MCDPH regarding action steps taken when COVID-19 cases are reported:

What happens after a school or health care provider reports a positive COVID-19 case to the Monroe County COVID-19 Hotline?
The school will develop and implement an immediate action plan with support from the MCDPH. This could include closing a classroom, school building or district for 24 hours. The school will communicate its plan to its families, faculty and staff. MCDPH will begin contact tracing.

How will families know if there is a positive COVID-19 case in their school district?
The school district will alert families, faculty and staff and the MCDPH will issue a media advisory to the general public. Individuals who were exposed to a lab-confirmed COVID-19 positive case will receive a phone call from the MCDPH Contact Tracing Team and will receive further instructions at that time.

What happens if a student or teacher in my child’s classroom tests positive for COVID-19?
With support from MCDPH, your school will provide instructions. Being in the same classroom does not necessarily mean your student was exposed to COVID-19, so you might not get a call from our Contact Tracing Team. If you are worried, you should discuss your concerns with your  primary care physician. If you do not have a PCP, contact the COVID-19 Hotline at (585) 753-5555.

What is the most important thing for families to remember? 
Check on your child’s health every morning. Take a temperature reading and look for symptoms of illness before your child leaves for school. Do not send a child who has a fever or who is feeling ill to school. Consult with your health care provider regarding any signs of illness.
