We were notified this morning by the Department of Health of two positive cases in the District. One is a remote-only learner at Troy High School, and the other is an out-of-district program attendee. Neither individual has been physically present in our buildings or on school grounds for any reason. While we understand that you might like additional details, due to privacy laws, we cannot release any identifiable information about the individuals or affected students.
The District is working closely with the Rensselaer County Department of Health (DOH) to conduct thorough contact tracing and will be following up with identified individuals for specific quarantine instructions. In the event you are contacted by the DOH, please offer your complete cooperation so we can mitigate any potential ongoing exposure. If you are not contacted by a representative of the District or Department of Health, there is no further action needed on your part.
Please be reminded that we must all work together to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Families and community members can assist our efforts by promoting healthy behaviors and following these practices:
- wearing masks,
- social distancing,
- practicing good hygiene, and
- limiting group gatherings
As always, the health and safety of students and staff is our top priority and we appreciate your continued support.
Superintendent of Schools
