| October 22, 2020

Dear North Colonie Community,

The North Colonie Central School District has confirmed today, Oct. 22, that a member of the school community has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual has been placed in isolation and will not return to a district building until they are cleared by the health department. This individual has had no contact with students.

We have been in contact with the Albany County Health Department and identified the individual’s close contacts. The health department will reach out to members of the school community who were in close contact with the individual. The health department will advise on the need to quarantine and to facilitate testing of those potentially exposed.

As a reminder, each of our school buildings are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected each evening in accordance with guidance from the CDC and the New York State Department of Health.

We continue to work closely with the Albany County Health Department and we will follow their guidance on how to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s school principal.

Sincerely,

D. Joseph Corr
Superintendent of Schools
