Caregiver Consent for Child COVID-19 Symptomatic Testing

The Ithaca City School District will conduct a COVID-19 symptomatic testing program throughout the 2021-2022 academic year for students who become unwell at school. Student participation in the testing program is voluntary, and the Ithaca City School District is requesting that parents/caregivers complete a consent form to allow their children to be tested for COVID-19 at school. We will not test your child without your consent.

Non-In-Person Learning Application/COVID-19 Health Eligibility

Students with health concerns related to COVID-19 - whether a contraindication to COVID-19 vaccination (conditions that increase the risk for a serious adverse reaction) or a health condition that places the student at greater risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) - and who have supporting medical documentation via the COVID-19 Health Eligibility Form are eligible for non-in-person learning for 2021-22.

To apply for non-in-person learning, parents/guardians should complete the following forms:

  1. Application for Non-In-Person Learning
  2. COVID-19 Health Eligibility Form
Completed forms should be emailed to healthalerts@icsd.k12.ny.us or faxed to (607) 645-4203. If you need paper versions of either of these forms, please contact Kamela Willett at (607) 274-2172 or kamela.willett@icsd.k12.ny.us.

All required documentation must be submitted by August 26, 2021. Applications submitted after this deadline (for example, if a student has a newly developed medical condition) will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

All applications will be reviewed by an ICSD-appointed committee of healthcare professionals.

 

Parent/Guardian Authorization of Another Adult for Administration of Medication

Through this form, parents/guardians can authorize another adult (such as a friend, family member, or household member) to administer certain medications to their child.
