As I previously mentioned, we will continue to work with our public health partners to monitor all available information, including how the increased infection rates relate to schools. At school, all of our health and safety precautions remain fully in effect and all available data indicates that the rate of virus transmission in schools is low.

We continue to work closely with the Albany County DOH and follow their guidance each time our district has a positive case. If you are looking for more information you can read more on quarantine protocols and isolation protocols from the Albany County DOH.

Please reach out to your child’s principal if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

D. Joseph Corr
Superintendent of Schools
