The District is working in collaboration with the New York State Department of Public Health, which is currently performing the contact tracing process pursuant to their protocols. The contact tracing process identifies anyone who comes into close contact with someone who has COVID-19. Contact tracing slows the spread of COVID-19 and helps protect you, your family, and our community. If you are contacted by Public Health, please follow its recommendations. The District also continues to follow policies and procedures/protocols to ensure the health and safety of the students and employees.
As much as the District is attempting to be completely transparent in this matter, we are required to protect the privacy rights of our staff and students. The District is not permitted to release any additional information.
We appreciate your continued support and understanding. We will continue to work together to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
