LYNDONVILLE – Lyndonville Central School welcomed back a portion of their students to campus today. Students in grades 4, 5, 6, 11 and 12 were greeted with warm welcomes from staff and administration.

Throughout the next two days the remainder of the students who selected in-person learning will return to campus.

Mitzi Fredericks, an aide with the school district, checks the Thermal Scan, which can show students with temperatures at 100 degrees or more. Those students will be then be checked with non-contact thermometers to see if they are at 100 or more degrees. If they are, they will be sent home.

“The district is looking forward to the 2020-21 school year and has worked diligently to ensure the health and well-being of our students,” said Superintendent Jason Smith.

While the school has two body thermal scans stationed at the main entrances and non-contact thermometers to assess student and staff temperature, the district reminds families to check their child’s temperature before coming to school. If a student’s temperature is greater than 100 degrees and/or exhibits Covid-19 symptoms he/she must remain home.

To ensure social distancing, Lyndonville is utilizing the Main Street elementary school for PreK and grades 5 and 6. Classrooms and a lunch area have been set up for these students. To reinforce safety procedures, district administration are hosting classroom meetings to discuss the importance of proper hygiene, masks and social distancing.

“All of us have a role in keeping our schools safe and preventing the spread of Covid-19,” Smith said. “Together we can work to keep our district healthy and open.”
