Please click on the links above to access the ECS Re-Opening, COVID-19 Testing, COVID-19 Containment and Tracing, and COVID-19 Continuity of Instruction Including Remote Instruction Plans. The District would like to thank the Board of Education, students, parents and staff that offered suggestions, feedback and ideas as these plans were developed. These plans are "living documents" that may change over time as needed. Please come back to this link to check for updates.
Earlier today, Ellicottville Central School was informed that an individual from the school tested positive for COVID -19. A contact tracing task force, which includes the Cattaraugus County Health Department, is currently conducting contact tracing and will contact anyone who may be required to quarantine due to possible exposure. If you are contacted by the Department of Health, please follow their instructions. If the Department of Health is unable to reach you directly, they will leave a voice mail with instructions.
Please know we are committed to ensuring the safety of all students and staff. As soon as we have additional guidance from the Department of Health, we will reach out again on Sunday with important information regarding our next steps, including plans for the upcoming week.
Helpful information from the Department of Health (DOH)
Dear Parents / Guardians:
We are writing to share the latest flowcharts from the NYS Department of Health that schools are to use as guidance when making determinations regarding a student’s attendance at school related to COVID-19. These charts contain a great deal of information. Please click below to view the charts.
We hope that you find these charts helpful in making decisions for the health of your child as well as the health of others.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Hager, School Nurse, at 716-699-2318 extension 1604, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Students / Parents can contact the school directly at 699-6052 or via the COVID-19 e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This post is being made as we are finding it necessary to make a couple of adjustments to our procedures at the school.
Due to inconsistencies in the daily health screening process, we will now be taking every students’ temperature using a touchless thermometer when the buses arrive at the school or at each of the entrances to the school every morning. This will start on Friday, September 11th.
At the same time, we are also asking that parents continue to complete and submit daily health screening forms. Please remember screening forms for all children should be completed every school day regardless of the instructional model a child is following that day.
We would also like to share a couple of updates for afternoon dismissal.

Dear ECS Parent / Guardian,
Thank you to everyone attened the live-streamed parent / community informational meetings on August 17-19. It was nice to see so many people.
During these meetings several questions were asked, and Mrs. Bush and Mr. Ploetz did their best to answer them during the meeting. We would like to assemble the answers to the questions in a concise manner and share them here on the Website. However, this is going to take a little time, as we are focusing on actionable items that need to be completed to keep the District moving forward.
In the meantime, here is a link to the Powerpoint presentation that was used.
Please know that we are constantly evolving, so some of the items on the Powerpoint may be modified moving forward.
