Cardiac clearance needed after having COVID-19
In mid-January 2021, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released a statement with recommendations regarding students who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and their participation in physical education and sports. In response to AAP's guidance, key personnel at NTCSD have conferred with our medical director, Dr. Douglas A. Schultz from Wheatfield Pediatrics, and we have developed a district plan and protocol moving forward with regards to students diagnosed with COVID-19. Please see the letter from NTCSD Medical Director Dr. Schultz and the COVID assessment/release for return to activities (PE and Sports) form.
Pre-K to grade 12 COVID-19 toolkits
The following toolkits were released Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020 by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the Niagara County Department of Health (NCDOH). Please use these toolkits to determine if your child or a staff member should go to school or work, and when a child or staff member is ready to return to school or work after symptoms/illness. You may contact the nurse in your school with any questions.
Additional resources can be found on the NCDOH webpage or by calling the NYS Novel Coronavirus Hotline at 1-888-364-3065.
