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.
Troy CSD Superintendent John Carmello wishes the community a happy holiday. We thank everyone for their support in making sure we do not have any major COVID-19 outbreaks and we urge people to remain vigilant over the break.
COVID-19 Update: School 16 student tests positive, building to pivot to remote learning for remainder of week
We have been notified that a School 16 student has tested positive for COVID-19. This student was last in school on Wednesday, December 2. Due to a staffing shortage relating to DOH issued quarantines for this case and others, all School 16 students will be learning remotely Wednesday, December 9 – Friday, December 11. Your child’s teacher will be reaching out with further instructions. In-person learning will resume on Monday, December 14. All School 16 students will go home with devices today and should bring them back to school on Monday.
