HFCSD In-person Learning Pause Update

Dear Tiger Community,

Today is day two of our three-day pause on in-person learning. Our buildings are being deep cleaned, and learning is continuing online. Students in Pre-K through 5th grade can check our website for work-from-home resources, and students in grades 6-12 should check their Google Classroom for assignments.

We plan to hand out Chromebook devices to our students in grades 4 and 5 tomorrow. Our transportation department will deliver to homes from 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday. If for any reason you cannot receive your Chromebook, please contact the Intermediate School office at (518) 681-4400.

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.

The Washington County Public Health Department is continuing their work to track, trace, and identify any potential contacts of the two individuals 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 so please continue to monitor our website for the most current details.  


Dr. Jon Hunter, Interim Superintendent
