Today, the district learned that one district-wide employee tested positive for COVID-19. The district is working under Albany County guidelines to determine who needs to quarantine and is contacting those individuals.
As a reminder, during the April break (April 5-9), we will send a summary of any new cases for the week on Friday, April 9, and our regular updates will resume on Monday, April 12. All new confirmed cases during break week will be reported to the NY COVID-19 Dashboard as required, and if contact tracing is required as a result of any new cases, we will contact those individuals directly. If there is significant news or development that requires action, we will send an email, phone call, or text as needed.
