Member of Blue Creek school community tests positive for COVID-19

Dear North Colonie Community,

The North Colonie Central School District confirmed today, Wednesday, Nov. 18, that an individual in the Blue Creek school community has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual was last in school on Thursday, Nov. 12.

We have been in contact with the Albany County Health Department and identified the individual’s close contacts in the school community. The health department will reach out and 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 follow their guidance each time our district has a positive case.

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


D. Joseph Corr
Superintendent of Schools
