Symptoms Identification Requirement
In collaboration with the Nassau BOCES Medical Director, we have established the procedures below in order to instruct staff on how to observe signs and symptoms of illness in students/staff. Symptomatic individuals will be sent to the school buildings nurse’s office for isolation when necessary. Training for staff will be provided as described in our Communication & Engagement section.
