New COVID-19 Cases
Today the district learned of two individuals testing positive for COVID-19: one case connected to Farnsworth Middle School and the other connected to Guilderland High School. Neither case requires contact tracing by the school because these individuals were not on campus when they were infectious. There were no new reported cases yesterday.
Albany County K-12 Schools: Symptomatic Household Member Protocol
In early January, we notified families about a directive from the Albany County Department of Health about household members of symptomatic students. As a reminder, if a student or household member is symptomatic, they cannot attend in-person school. All individuals in the household (district staff members) cannot return to school until the symptomatic family member receives their negative test results (lab-based/PCR test). Please take a moment to review this information. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.
