District seeks parental consent for student COVID-19 rapid testing

The Troy City School District is preparing for the testing of students and staff that would be required if New York State designates any part of our school community as a Yellow, Orange or Red Zone. While we are not testing yet, we are asking that all parents of in-person or hybrid students complete the COVID-19 Testing Consent Form. Please click the link above for details.

Letter from Superintendent John Carmello: Learning and Transportation Choice Form to be sent by November 16

In a letter dated November 6, Superintendent John Carmello asks parents to begin thinking about their child’s learning model for the rest of the school year. A Learning and Transportation Choice Form will be sent to families by November 16 and parents will have until December 1 to request a change. Only those requesting a change need to complete the form. If your child is continuing with their current model, no action is required.

School 12 placed into precautionary lockdown on October 14

On Wednesday, October 14, at approximately 9:30 a.m., School 12 was placed into lockdown out of an abundance of caution due to a report of shots fired outside of the building that was later determined by Troy Police to be a flare gun. Emergency protocols were followed according to plan and police officers lifted the lockdown at approximately 9:45 a.m. At no point were the students and staff involved. The building is now operating normally.
