| December 14, 2020

Dear North Colonie Community,

The North Colonie Central School District has confirmed eight new cases of COVID-19 in our school community. The cases include:

  • An individual associated with the Southgate K-3 community who was last in the building on Thursday, Dec. 3.
  • An individual associated with the high school community who was last in the building on Tuesday, Nov. 24. The individual was not in the building during the time in which they were infectious.
  • An individual associated with the Boght Hills 4-6 intermediate program at SJHS who was last in the building on Dec. 7.
  • An individual associated with the Boght Hills 4-6 intermediate program at SJHS who was last in the building on Dec. 3. The individual was not in the building during the time in which they were infectious.
  • An individual associated with Boght Hills K-3 community who was last in the building on Dec. 7. There are no school contacts related to this case because individuals were already placed under a quarantine from a previous case.
  • An individual associated with the Southgate K-3 community who was last in the building on Monday, Dec. 7.
  • An individual who is associated with the Forts Ferry K-3 remote learning program. This individual has not been in any of our buildings at all this school year.
  • An individual associated with the high school community who was last in the building on Tuesday, Nov. 24. The individual was not in the building during the time in which they were infectious.

We have been in contact with the Albany County Department of Health and identified each individual’s close contacts in the school community. Anyone who has been in close contact with any of these individuals has been directly contacted by a school administrator to discuss quarantine procedures and other health-related instructions. A call from the New York State Department of Health contact tracers will follow.

We continue to work closely with the Albany County DOH and follow their guidance each time our district has a positive case. Read more information 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
