Clymer School had three active cases that were reported the week of September 27th. With every reported case, our leadership team follows a contact tracing procedure to identify any individuals who are considered a close contact. These individuals are required to quarantine for 10 days following the last day of exposure. Identified individuals are not able to test out of this required quarantine. A close contact is anyone who is within 6 feet of the positive case for a cumulative of 15 minutes with or without a mask. Many of our classes are utilizing our outdoor spaces while, also maximizing the use of all indoor spaces. We continue to evaluate our procedures to minimize the number of students or staff considered a close contact. We continue to need your assistance and keep your kids home when they are sick. The health office has access to resources to assist families with getting kids back to school. As the cooler weather arrives and social activities continue, remember that social distancing is an effective strategy in minimizing the spread of illness. Please encourage your children to keep this in mind as they participate in Homecoming this weekend. We wish everyone a fun, safe weekend. Go Wolfpack!
Today we were notified of a postive COVID 19 case within our building. We are working with the Chautauqua County DOH to notify close contacts and inform them of their quarantine status. If your child exhibits any symptoms please keep them home and notify the health office.
The Forestry class enjoyed a field trip to George Kirik’s property in Corry, Pa. This is a stump growth tree that has an estimated 4000 board foot of lumber in it. The original old growth tree these grew from, was cut in 1880’s-1900. George and Warren County's Forester, Taylor Chamberlin, led the tour and we are very thankful for their time and sharing their knowledge--
Today our leadership team did contact tracing for several cases impacting our building. Please, if your child has any symptoms of illness, including minor symptoms, keep them home. We have had great success working with the CCDOH to schedule same day testing and reporting results. If your child is symptomatic, call the health office and we can assist you securing a test. Our continued goal is to maintain an in-person instructional. Your cooperation is essential to our success.

This week the Clymer School District had one positive test in the building. Close contacts have also been identified from community cases. We will continue to provide weekly updates and other Covid data can be found on the Chautauqua County DOH website.
This weekend our leadership team contact traced two separate covid cases that impacted our school. At this point, all close contacts have been identified and quarantined. Looking ahead, a summary of all positive cases involving the school will be posted on our website after 4pm on Fridays. We will continue to update and monitor you to any changes in our practice or protocols as they become available. In addition, the Chautauqua County Health Department asked us to share that hospital emergency rooms and the WellNow Urgent Care Centers are overrun with folks requesting COVID-19 testing. The best way at this time to quickly and efficiently get symptomatic students and staff tested for COVID-19 is through the county. Unless someone is in need of emergency care because of the severity of their symptoms, one should not be using emergency and urgent care resources for testing, including to return to school or work. If you son or daughter is presenting symptoms and you want them tested, please call the health office and we will get you in touch with a county health representative to set up testing. Please remember, that there is no test out option for those in isolation or quarantine. We appreciate your assistance with keeping your student home when they are sick, and we will continue to utilize all resources to keep our students healthy and in school.

August is here and the first day of school is right around the corner. The Clymer administration along with other county officials are evaluating what restrictions need to be in place for a safe reopening.

As we have already experienced, restrictions can change three times within a week. The Clymer leadership team are currently preparing the building for all our students to return on September 7th. We are closely watching health trends in our community and we will adapt our reopening guidelines to provide the least restrictive, but safe learning environment for our students and staff. We will be communicating regularly in these coming weeks as details develop. Please be patient with us as we prepare for a safe return.

There will be different participants visiting throughout the week to speak with students about different career paths and what it takes to get there. As always, our goal is to provide as many opportunities to the students as possible in hopes to better equip them for success in the future, while keeping their safety at the forefront.
Good Afternoon this is Beth Olson. I wanted to take a minute to provide you with some updates regarding new guidance. You may have heard that the CDC released new guidance regarding individuals who have been vaccinated do no need to wear a mask when in public. New York State has not yet adopted this guidance, so this is not applicable to schools at this time. Although some staff and students have been vaccinated, many more are not. Therefore, we will continue our practice of wearing masks during the school day and at school sponsored events until further NYS guidance is released. Another update that came out earlier this week from Section VI regarding athletics. We are now allowed to have up to 500 people outdoors and 250 indoors for our spring sports. This is great news for Clymer and CSP athletics. We will still have the responsibility to maintain attendance records for our events, but this will open up our athletic competitions to the community. This increased capacity is for athletic events only, but I anticipate additional guidance for other end of year celebrations to be released in the upcoming weeks. Although things are opening up, we still need to be mindful that there are positive cases in our community. Within this past week we have had 2 positive cases that have impacted our school. Students and staff are still at risk of illness and/or quarantine if we do not continue with the procedures we have practiced all year long. We have a lot planned for the remainder of the school year, and increased cases could impact our plans. We have had a successful year and we couldn’t have done it without our family’s and community support. Help us finish the year strong. Happy May Day!
Clymer Central School will be celebrating May Day this year. We are thrilled we have the opportunity to carry on this long-standing Clymer tradition. Due to current NYSDOH guidelines we must limit the number of visitors we have on campus. Please do not plan to attend unless you were given a ticket by a student participating. We ask that our community support us by watching the Livestream at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTC4wvkIbxdBKcQ1PAkGbpQ Your support on this matter is appreciated.

Brooks Memorial Hospital is hosting three 1st dose COVID-19 vaccination clinics with Pfizer vaccine. These clinics are open to anyone 16 years of age and older. They are posted currently on WNY Vaccine Hound https://www.vaccinehound.org/. I’ve also put the direct link to schedule here: https://apps2.health.ny.gov/doh2/applinks/cdmspr/2/counties?OpID=C109A8C68D3F0282E0530A6C7C15EDDC May 5th: 1pm – 3pm May 14th: 8am – 10am May 21st: 8am – 10am
We have been notified by the local health department that two members of our school community have tested positive for Covid-19. School officials have contacted all individuals that are considered to be a close contact. To be considered close contact, individuals are less than 6 feet apart for 10 minutes cumulative throughout the day with or without a mask. All of our classrooms are set up to maximize social distancing, but students need to continue to be mindful of their actions during class transitions and activities beyond the school day. We are at a difficult time of year with allergy season ramping up. Because many allergy symptoms mirror the symptoms of Covid-19, it is imperative that if your student is exhibiting any symptoms of illness, please keep them home. We have a lot of activities planned in these final months of school. One sick individual can impact many from participating in these events. Please do your part to minimize the spread so that we can finish the year strong and healthy. Have a good day.
Second grade walked around our school Parking Lot, Outdoor Classroom, and our Football Field to pick up garbage in honor of Earth Day on April 22nd.

As we prepare our students for their return to instruction on Monday, I would like to remind you of your daily responsibility to complete the daily health screening for your children on the SNAP system. Questions on the survey have been modified to align the new guidelines released this past week. If your child arrives to school without a completed health screening, he/she will not be allowed to attend class until a parent/guardian can be reached. This daily requirement is necessary to minimize the risk of exposure and quarantine to other students and staff in the building. Quarantine not only impacts the classroom, but the athletic fields and other class trips. Please due your due diligence to keep our community safe. More communication will be sent out over the next week providing any additional updates to our in-person instructional model in light of the updated guidance. We look forward to the energy your children bring to our building.
The fifth graders practiced our flood drill this afternoon, in honor of April Fool's Day. They sat on their desks, reached one hand up in the air, and held their nose with the other.

Mr. King, CCS Wellness Coordinator/Physical Education teacher, Mrs. Watrous, Cafeteria Manager, and Nurse Amy Johnson offered a coloring contest to UPK-Grade 6 in March. We were fortunate to have the Chautauqua County Dairy Princess, LynnDee Nagel, come after school to judge the entries. Everyone enjoyed seeing the colorful pictures posted in the hallway and reading the responses from the students regarding why they like milk. A healthy diet and good nutrition are so important--Mrs. Watrous and her staff work hard each day to provide wholesome meals to our student body each school day-and during the 2020-21 school year they are free of charge! The entries of the following students were selected by the Dairy Princess to receive an additional prize. (Selected 4th grade student was absent).

This is a reminder that all students must complete the daily health screening form prior to reporting to the building each day. Students who have not completed the daily health form will not be allowed in class until a family member has been notified. In addition, if you child is absent from school, you must contact the health office regarding the details of your student’s absence. Students who return to school without a note will not be allowed in class until a parent/guardian can be reached. Your assistance with this requirement is necessary for the safety of everyone in the building. We are proud that we have been able to offer in-person learning to our students this year. Our success is a result of the partnership we have with our families. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon and Think Spring!

What would you do with $1,000? What do you think life will be like in 1,000 years? What is something your teacher has said 1,000 times this school year? How smart would you be if you went to school for 1,000 days? Answer: You’d be as smart as a fifth grader! These are just a few of the questions that the fifth graders have been thinking about this week. But the most important question of all was how do you create a snow fort using 1,000 blocks of snow? AND that is just what we tried to do, to celebrate their 1,000th Day of School! Unfortunately, with all of the snow it was pitiful for fort making. The week has been spent with hidden mystery notes, journal entries centered around the number 1,000, door decorations, cookies, surprises and hot chocolate! And we had so much fun celebrating 1,000 days of learning. If there was ever a year to commemorate such a milestone, this was it! It’s been full of change, but one constant has remained...these kids put in 1,000% effort day in and day out and learning (lots of it) has taken place. So today was a day of reward! Happy 1,000th Day of School Fifth Graders! We are so proud of you!

Dear Parents and Guardians, According to school policy 7110 and NYS Education Law, it is mandatory that a school excuse be provided by the parent on the return date of the student. During this pandemic, the importance of this communication is enhanced to help ensure the health and safety of all individuals within the building. Starting Wednesday, February 3, 2021 students reporting to school after an absence or late to school without an excuse will be contained in our isolation room, working remotely, until a written excuse is received. Written excuses can be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org or handwritten notes can be handed in upon arrival. Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
We were notified earlier today that an individual on our campus tested positive for COVID 19. Any individual that is considered a close contact has been identified and contacted. Our protocols and safety measures that we have been implementing have demonstrated minimal risk of exposure to our students and staff while here on campus. We will continue to promote and enforce face coverings and social distancing. Also, if your child exhibits any sign of illness please keep them home. Our success is dependent upon everyone working together. Thank you.

Hello Clymer families! The 3rd quarter will soon be starting on February 1st. In preparation for the upcoming quarter, we ask families that wish to change their child’s instructional mode to complete the decision form posted on our website. This decision form ONLY needs completed if you are requesting to change how your child will attend school for the upcoming quarter. All requests must be received no later than Friday, January 22nd. Thank you and enjoy the long weekend!
I hope your family had a wonderful holiday. After carefully monitoring our community infection rate during this recess, we have determined we will reopen for in-person instruction for all students in grades PK- 12 on Monday January 4th. In order to maintain this instructional model, it is imperative that the daily health screening is completed prior to 7:30am each day and all students wear a face covering. Additional measures to ensure social distancing for our students and staff throughout the day will also be implemented. One significant change that will impact our students is that they will have limited access to their lockers throughout the day. Due to this change, students will be allowed to carry a backpack with their materials as they transition between classes. Students are asked to report directly to their homeroom upon arrival. Also, any student without a completed health form will be held in our isolation room until a parent can be contacted and a form is submitted. Also, we want to remind you that travel is still restricted outside the state. Anyone who has travelled out of state for more than 24 hours will need to quarantine for 10 days. Let’s hope 2021 will bring us normalcy and good health! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Due to a staffing issue, grades 9-12 only will be pivoting to a remote instructional model for the week of December 7th.

With the assistance from the health department, we will continue to monitor the situation and provide an update to our families later this week. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these current conditions. It is our hope that we can return to an in person instructional model for everyone quickly.

Each day it is the responsibility of every family to complete the SNAP health report that is available through text or the link on our website. Any student who does not have a daily health screen completed by 7:30 am will be held in isolation upon entry into the building until a parent can be contacted. We understand that these extra measures may be inconvenient for our families, but they are essential for minimizing exposure to our students and staff. We appreciate your cooperation as we continue to act in the best interest of our children.

Good Evening Clymer Families, As posted on our website, on November 16, 2020, the Clymer school had its 2nd incident of exposure to a Covid-19. positive case. We have identified and excluded all individuals that are considered a contact to the index case. The Chautauqua County Health department will also be following up with each of the affected individuals. It is imperative for those individuals to work with the health department and follow their recommendations to limit the spread of infection. At this point in time we are monitoring our attendance, but we are remaining in an in person instructional model. We will make adjustments as necessary and will communicate to families if a change to our instructional model is needed. Our students and staff will continue to social distance when possible, especially in classrooms, wear face coverings when not moving or socially distanced, and wash hands or sanitize frequently. You can help our efforts by keeping your children home if they show any signs of illness. Thank you for your ongoing assistance and support. Thank you Beth Olson

As we enter the second quarter of the school year, it is necessary to shift several student schedules (particularly in grades 7-12) to ensure social distancing in the classrooms. Your child will be notified this week if any of these changes affect their schedule. Please speak with your child for an update on their schedule.
SAVE THE DATE - Parent Teacher Conferences: All K-12 students will have an early dismissal on Monday, November 23rd and Tuesday, November 24th due to Parent Teacher Conferences.

Consequences as specified in the Student Handbook for the misuse of cell phones during the school day will be strictly enforced. If you need to contact your child during the school day, please call the main office and your message will be given to your child.
