Jan. 11 | Grades 9-12 move to remote learning Tuesday, January 12 through Friday, January 15 due to staff shortage

The district learned about two new positive cases of COVID-19 in our school community on Sunday, January 10th, and Monday, January 11th.

  • On Sunday, January 10, the district was informed that an individual associated with the high school tested positive for Covid-19.
    • The individual has not been in the building since the holiday break. As a result, there are no school contacts related to this case. 
  • On Monday, January 11, the district was informed that an individual associated with the high school tested positive for Covid-19.
    • We are working with the Albany County Department of Health on contact tracing. The Albany County Department of Health will reach out to all contacts and advise on the need to quarantine.
  • Due to staff shortage, grades 9-12 only will be fully remote starting tomorrow, Tuesday, January 12 through Friday, January 15. School will resume in-person classes on Tuesday, January 19.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict the district from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.

The district continues to follow all prevention protocols in accordance with guidelines from the New York State Department of Health and CDC — this includes a thorough cleaning and disinfecting of all school buildings. All schools will remain open for in-person instruction. 

Please reach out to your child’s principal if you have any questions.
