    Dear ECS Community, 

    We recently received a joint release from the Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara County Departments of Health addressing travel and quarantine requirements that I thought I would pass along to you. This guidance may be accessed at  https://www.cattco.org/news/travel-and-quarantine-press-release-02042021-12937.

    Additionally, the most recent information on travel rules for NYS, may be found at https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory.  Please keep in mind, the rules and guidance are subject to change without notice, so check back often.

    As your family makes plans for the February and April breaks, please be mindful of the impact that traveling out of the state may have on when your child / children may be able to return to in-person instruction / activities at the school.

    If you have any questions regarding this message, you are welcome to contact your child’s / children’s principal or myself.  Otherwise, my hope is that everyone is able to safely enjoy these well-deserved breaks.

    Dear ECS Community,

    This is a follow-up to information from earlier today.  Ellicottville Central School has been informed that contact tracing calls have been completed.  In light of this, the school will remain open tomorrow, Monday, February 1st, for all students, unless they have been instructed to quarantine.  All students will follow their normal schedules.

    Sunday, January 31.

    Dear ECS Community,

    Ellicottville Central School has learned that an individual associated with the school has tested positive for COVID -19.   We will be working with the Health Department on contact tracing efforts. 

    If you are contacted by the Health Department please follow their instructions.  If they are unable to reach you directly, they will leave a message.  Their caller ID will show up as NYS Contact Tracing or “518-387-9993.”

    As soon as we have more information, including plans for school tomorrow, we will reach out to you as soon as possible later today.

    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.

    • DOH Chart A1: This chart should be used to assist when deciding if you can send you child to school. 
    • DOH Chart A2: This chart should be used to determine how / when child may return to school.

    We hope that you find these charts helpful in making decisions for the health of your child as well as the health of others.

     Temperature Checks  

    September 10th,

    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.   

    • Families with elementary students only or a combination of elementary and middle high students should continue to utilize the elementary entrance for car pick ups. 
    • Families picking up students in grades 7-12 ,only, may use the back entrance by the bus garage.  

     Thank you.
