Superintendent's Letter: COVID Update 10.27.20

Oct. 27, 2020
Dear Oswego City School District community,
Late this afternoon (Oct. 27, 2020) the District was notified by the Onondaga and Oswego County Health Departments that our entire Boys Varsity Soccer Team is being placed into quarantine. This is because a student from the Baldwinsville CSD, who was involved in a recent competition with our athletes (held on Oct. 24, 2020), has tested positive for COVID-19.
Please know, both Health Departments are now enacting contact tracing activities. All parents of students who are involved in this matter are currently being contacted by these Health Departments. Per federal privacy laws, the district is legally unable to disclose any further details or personally identifiable information regarding this case.
In addition, until further notice all Boys Varsity Soccer contests and activities are suspended. The district will provide more details about future contests in the near future.
Any questions related to this concern should directed to the District’s COVID-19 Hotline at 315-341-2050.
Please remember, parents are encouraged to keep children home if they are experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19: Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscles or body aches, headaches, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, nasal congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
We also ask that parents continue to be vigilant when it comes to practicing proper hand hygiene, physical distancing, and wearing face coverings. Those actions will help minimize the risk of spread and exposure in our school community and beyond.
Thank you,
Mathis Calvin III, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
