  • Skype a Scientist

    Ms. Robinson's Astronomy class participated in the national Skype A Scientist Program and virtually met with Dr. Nathan Whitehorn from Michigan State University. Dr. Whitehorn first talked about different wavelengths of light before showing students various images of the Milky Way in different wavelengths to show how astronomers use different filters to obtain different views of the galaxy and the universe. After talking about how he and his colleagues use the South Pole Telescope to try to understand how the universe formed and how it has evolved over time, Dr. Whitehorn answered questions about how he became an astrophysicist, how to detect black holes, the "sound" of the early universe, the expansion of the universe, and what may happen if there was another Big Bang.

  • New COVID Guidance: Test to Stay, quarantines reduced to 5 days, & diagnostic testing

    In an effort to keep our students in school, Herkimer BOCES component school districts worked with Herkimer County Public Health Department to create a plan that eliminates or shortens quarantines due to COVID-19. The plan centers on the latest guidance from the New York State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control.

    The plan replaces precautionary quarantines with home testing as a way to continue attending school in person. It also shortens quarantines from 10 days to 5 days as measured from the onset of symptoms or the date of a positive COVID test, whichever is earlier—as long as the child wears a well-fitting mask for days six through 10.
