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.
