Superintendent’s Update #32

February 7, 2022

Dear Chappaqua Central School District Families,

I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to share three documents sent to CCSD by the NYS Department of Health on Friday evening. These documents address isolation, quarantine and test-to-stay procedures.

You may access the NYSDOH documents here:

Chappaqua Central School District is no longer required to contact trace as articulated in Superintendents Update #27. In the event you determine your child was a close contact of an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 while infectious, please take note of the following:

  • Should you determine your child meets the criteria for test-to-stay, please access our Home Testing Program webpage and we will provide you with the necessary test kits to facilitate this process each morning before school.
  • Should you determine your child needs to be excluded from CCSD extracurricular activities based on the newly released NYSDOH known exposure criteria, please inform your building principal. They will contact the appropriate person who provides oversight for that particular program.
  • If your child is unvaccinated and lives in the same household with a COVID-19 positive person, they may now participate in the test-to-stay program so long as the COVID-19 positive person in the household is isolated. Should this be the case, please request your child’s tests through our Home Testing Program webpage.

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week, all buildings will have one home test kit available for each CCSD child in your household for pick-up. You can stop by the security vestibule in your child’s school at any point during the school day, and we will assist you. If you have children in multiple buildings, you will be able to pick up a test kit for each of your children at one location.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding. I will continue to share with you new information as it becomes available.

Sincerely,

Christine Ackerman, PhD
Superintendent of Schools
