LHS Students Test Positive for COVID-19

Sunday, October 18, 2020 -

Dear Liverpool CSD Families and Staff,

On Saturday, October 17, the Liverpool Central School District was informed that two Liverpool High School students have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Onondaga County Health Department is in the process of identifying and notifying those individuals who came in close contact with the students who tested positive. Due to privacy laws, we cannot provide any additional information about the students who tested positive or about those who may have been exposed. 

The students who tested positive, and any other students, faculty, and staff who were exposed, will not return to school until the Onondaga County Health Department provides clearance for them to do so.

All Liverpool High School Main Building classes will switch to REMOTE LEARNING on Monday, October 19, only.

After discussions with the Onondaga County Health Department, and “out of an abundance of caution,” the LHS Main Building will be closed on Monday, October 19, to allow time for additional contact tracing as well as a deep cleaning and disinfection of the building. We anticipate the LHS Main Building will reopen on Tuesday, October 20.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding. If you are not contacted by the Onondaga County Health Department, but are still concerned you may have been exposed, please visit the New York State Health Department Web site at to find local testing sites.


Dr. Mark F. Potter
Superintendent of Schools
