Eight New COVID-19 Cases

There are eight new positive cases of COVID 19 that the district learned about late yesterday and today. None of the cases required contact tracing by the school district per Albany County Department of Health guidelines.

  • Four cases associated with Westmere Elementary School
  • Three cases associated with Guilderland High School
  • One case associated with Altamont Elementary School

Please reach out to your building principal if you have any questions. We will continue to monitor our numbers and follow guidelines from the State and the Albany County Department of Health to determine if there is any need to transition to all-remote learning at any time. As of right now, we can offer in-person instruction to our students.

COVID-19 Testing In GCSD Schools

We are awaiting further guidance from the Governor regarding his recent announcement that school districts in regions with infection rates above 9% will need to test staff and students and demonstrate a lower infection rate in order to remain open. Information will be shared as soon as it becomes available.
