COVID-19 In-person learning pause update

Dear Tiger Community,

Today is day one of our three-day pause on in-person learning. At this time, we will remain 100% remote until Monday, December 14th. Our buildings are being thoroughly cleaned, and learning is continuing online. UPK-6 parent-teacher conferences will remain as previously scheduled. And students in grades 6-12 should check their Google Classroom for assignments. Tomorrow, we will share an update about how important the district-parent partnership is to manage increasing COVID cases.

If any student would like meals, please come to the cafeteria entrance on the Franklin Street side of the High School. Food will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day.

The Washington County Public Health Department is continuing their work to track, trace, and identify any potential contacts of the individual in our school community who tested positive for COVID-19. They will reach out to all contacts and advise on the need to quarantine and to arrange to test those exposed.

Please note that New York State and Federal privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.

As we have talked about all year, to keep our school community safe, we have established protocols around wearing masks, staying socially distant, and following proper hand hygiene. We encourage all families to do their part, both in-school and out.

Thank you for your continued patience and support. We are making final plans for student returns and will update you on Friday with those details.  


Dr. Jon Hunter, Interim Superintendent
