Dear Parents and Families,
Today we were notified that a staff member and three students have tested positive for COVID-19. These cases all occurred during the recent winter recess when school was not in session. We will continue to communicate with the Orleans County Health Department, as we have with all positive cases.
Per privacy guidelines, no addition personally identifiable information can be shared about this individual.
With this particular case, there is no need for school staff to conduct contract tracing. If any quarantine directives are issued by the Health Department, they will not be due to contact with the staff member during school hours or while on district property.
We will continue to support the Health Department by providing any required information for their process and will adhere to their directives.
We are committed to providing our students and staff with a safe and healthy environment. Our building will continue to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. I continue to be proud of our staff and students for adhering to the safety protocols we have in place. Our cleaning, social distancing, barriers and face covering are effective in preventing the spread of the virus on our campus. I ask that you please continue to wear face masks, maintain social distancing and wash your hands frequently.
I will continue to inform you of any positive cases as we are notified.
Thank you for your understanding and ongoing cooperation with our COVID-19 prevention policies and procedures as we work to help protect our students, staff and families. As always, if you have questions, I can be contacted directly at:
Jason A. Smith
Superintendent of Schools
