Herkimer BOCES is providing a Student Voluntary Verification of COVID-19 Vaccination Form in order to limit the need to quarantine and help remain open to in-person instruction. To fill out the Student Voluntary Verification of COVID-19 Vaccination Form online, go here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScB4Yfe53yg1eCp0Bm9Q5evNDRzeX5b6Sg_wAZVZr8uOLH1Tg/viewform More info about the form: In order to remain open and in-person as much as possible during the 2021-22 school tear and to limit the number of potential quarantines that may be ordered by Herkimer County Public Health, Herkimer BOCES is asking you to let us know if your child has received a COVID-19 vaccine by filling out the Student Voluntary Verification of COVID-19 Vaccination Form. If your child is exposed to a confirmed, positive case of COVID-19 at BOCES this year and they are fully vaccinated, they probably won't have to be quarantined, as long as they are not showing any symptoms. Having this information ahead of time helps us work with Herkimer County Public Health and could result in less time out of school for your child. This information is being collected as anonymously as possible, and does not mean that any student or employee is required to receive any COVID-19 vaccine.

The Health Science and Careers Senior Class recently celebrated completing their CNA testing. They accomplished this goal, despite having to spend much of their junior year, preparing for the rigorous exam through distance learning. The class, led by their instructors Christie Zambri and Vicky Hauser, also persevered throughout the ever changing 2020-2021 school year, in completing the necessary hands on experiences needed to be successful on the exam. They were one of the few programs in NY that managed to conduct a clinical experience amidst the pandemic. Zambri and Hauser honored the students with a pinning ceremony, where they individually recieved their first official Nursing Pins. Congratulations to all the new CNAs, and to the entire class for their inspirational dedication to their education and their futures.
