IMPORTANT CLV NEWS & UPDATES
Dear School Community,
Over the past nine months, we have worked together in addressing the challenges of COVID - 19 with a priority on the health and safety of our students and staff. We are fortunate to be able to collaborate with the Cattaraugus County Department of Health for the administration of COVID - 19 tests to students and staff if our region is designated a Yellow Zone.
Should our community be designated a Yellow Zone, also known as a Precautionary Zone, schools must test 20% of in-person students, faculty, and staff. Schools may remain open for in-person instruction if they adhere to required testing regulations. Personnel from the Cattaraugus County Department of Health will administer the test in collaboration with our school staff.
Students who are randomly selected for testing must have a completed consent form on file to be tested.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we continue to strive for in - person learning.
**Virtual parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Monday, November 23rd and Tuesday, November 24th.

**School will not be in session for students November 23rd - November 27th. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Student COVID - 19 Daily Screening Form to be completed by Parent/Guardian Before Sending your Child(ren)to School
As part of our reopening plan we are asking parents to complete an on-line COVID – 19 electronic screening form before sending your child(ren) to school. The on-line form (located to the left of this page under Return to School) is secure and confidential. Daily temperature screening and assessment of the four COVID-19 close contact/potential exposure questions will be conducted at each school building as students exit the school bus and/or enter the school building (parent drop off and walkers).
A COVID - 19 hotline is now available to parents/guardians at 257-5625. Please call this number if you have questions specific to COVID- 19 and the district will be in communication with you. Thank you.
ATHLETIC EVENT UPDATE!
Dear School Community,
New York State is permitting outdoor Lower Risk (cross-country) and Moderate Risk (soccer) athletic events at schools. “Interim Guidance for Sports and Recreation During the COVID – 19 Public Health Emergency” limits the number of patrons/players to two spectators per player. Spectators must:
- Maintain six feet of physical distance between individuals and/or family/household units at all times
- Must wear face coverings when they are in common areas and situations where six feet of distancing is not able to be maintained, so long as they are over the age of two and medically able to tolerate such covering
- Spectators (2 per player) will be issued a CCAA pass and must wear the pass at all times while at the athletic event
- Spectators will complete a COVID – 19 screening/Temp check upon arrival
Spectators without a CCAA issued pass will not be allowed to attend the athletic event. Thank you for supporting our athletes and new regulations.
