Apr. 19 | Positive COVID cases in the middle and high school communities

The district learned about two new positive cases of COVID-19 in our school community on Monday, April 19, 2021.

The district was informed that one individual associated with the high school tested positive for COVID-19, and one individual associated with the middle school tested positive for COVID-19.

  • In both cases, there was possible exposure.
  • Affected individuals will be contacted by the district and/or Albany County DOH.

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 remain open for in-person instruction.

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