Helpful Resources for our Commack Community

For help with the Daily Health Screening, please email: [email protected]. 

The Commack Schools have approximately 7,000 staff and students with about 5,000 currently reporting to our schools daily. We want to assure you that the District is following all of the health and safety protocols set forth by the CDC and the New York State Department of Health. 
 
We would like to take this opportunity to clarify the Department of Health mandated quarantine, in the event that your child is deemed a close contact resulting from exposure to COVID-19.  “Close contact” with a symptomatic or asymptomatic positive case is defined as being within six feet of the positive individual, for a prolonged period of time (ten minutes or more). Furthermore, the Department of Health has very strict guidelines for individuals who must quarantine. It has come to our attention that parents are allowing students under quarantine to participate in extracurricular activities such as sports, play dates, parties and more. Please DO NOT DO THIS.  Quarantine means individuals must stay separate from others in their household and community, and must not be in public or otherwise leave their quarantine quarters.  We recognize that this may be a disruption to the household as well as extracurricular activities that students may be involved in.  However, according to the Suffolk County Department of Health, COVID-19 is spreading through local community gatherings outside of school (e.g., per the DOH, neighborhood gatherings, childhood birthday parties, extracurricular sports, playdates, and other small or larger group gatherings). 

Below you will find helpful information from the Suffolk County Department of Health. Should you have an questions or concerns, please call 311. Representatives are available Monday-Friday 9am-6pm and Saturday-Sunday 10am-4pm.

NYS Dept. of Health Pre-K to 12th Grade COVID-19 Toolkit

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) recently released a Pre-K to Grade 12 COVID-19 Toolkit.   This document provides school districts and parents/guardians with updated guidelines to determine if a child can attend school or return to school following an illness.  The Commack School District will be following the protocols established by the NYSDOH.  You can view the NYSDOH guidelines by clicking this link New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Pre-K to Grade 12 COVID-19 Toolkit.
 
We would like to please remind parents/guardians of the following:
  • complete the Commack UFSD Required Health Screening Questionnaire daily for your child(ren).  For assistance with daily health screening, please email [email protected]
  • contact your child’s Health Office (elementary schools) or Attendance Office (secondary schools) to report daily absences. 
  • contact your child’s Health Office if your child(ren) must remain in quarantine or isolation as ordered by a federal, state, or local health department.  
  • contact your child’s Health Office with any COVID-19 test results.
 
The safety and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority.  As always, we greatly appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and continued support of our schools.
