Earlier today the district learned that an individual of the GHS school community tested positive for COVID-19. GHS Principal, Michael Piscitelli worked with the Albany County Department of Health to assist with contact tracing, and all those who need to quarantine have been notified. The Department of Health will follow up with those individuals.
This new case, in combination with other absences, has created a staffing shortage for grades 8-12. Because of this staffing shortage, we are transitioning to all-remote learning for grades 8-12 tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 13 through Friday, Jan. 15. Students will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, Jan. 19.
During these three days of remote instruction:
- All students in grades 8-12 should continue to follow their regular schedule each day.
- All self-contained students will report for in-person instruction during this time
- CTE students will continue to be transported to their programs
- Meals will be available to all students for pick-up at GHS between the hours of 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 13. No sign-up is required.
