School Reopening Update

  • First and foremost, thank you for your patience and support during the first couple of months of school as we reopened under very unusual conditions.  As you know, Lockport’s school reopening plan included both a HYBRID LEARNING MODEL and a FULL REMOTE LEARNING MODEL. At this time, the Lockport City School District learning models will remain the same until further notice.

Student Presenting COVID-19 Symptoms

  • Per the Niagara County Department of Health, any student presenting with any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever 100 degrees or higher, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea) must be evaluated by a medical professional and secure a negative covid test, documented in writing and submitted to the school nurse prior, to returning to school. Parents/legal guardians may not refuse to seek medical evaluation and/or a COVID test if they would like to return to school. Students who are ill may be authorized to continue to work remotely after review by school administration.

    If your child was diagnosed with illness other than COVID, the following conditions must be met in order to return to school: Medical evaluation and completed documentation by physician, negative COVID test result (documented in writing), and your child has been fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.

Mask and Sanitizer Notification

  • Face Coverings: Following consultation with the school physician the following are acceptable forms of face coverings - cloth masks made with a cotton material, surgical masks, N95 masks, and gaiters made of multiple layers of cotton. Fleece masks and one layer gaiters are not acceptable.

    Hand Sanitizer: The Standing First Aid Protocols that we receive annually from our school physician permit the use of alcohol-based sanitizers with students without a physician's order. If a parent does not want their child to use a hand sanitizer they must notify the district in writing.
