North Colonie School District COVID guidance:

Chinese School follows North Colonie Central School District guidance related to COVID illness protocols for the 2022-2023 school year.

If the student tests positive on a rapid COVID test, they must remain out of school for five (5) calendar days. Day one is the first full day after symptoms onset. Testing is not required to return after the five (5) day period. Symptoms must be resolving in order to return. If, after the five-day period, the symptoms are not improving or get worse, students should remain out of school and seek the guidance of a healthcare professional.
