Today, district officials learned that a student and a staff member from Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School both tested positive for COVID-19. Neither were in the building during the infectious period so there is no risk of exposure.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.
Remember that we can help stop the spread by following the guidance of the Orange County Department of Health, including washing your hands with soap and water, avoiding gatherings and group activities, and staying home when you are sick.
Join me in wishing a speedy recover to all of our unwell family members.
Daniel T. Connor
Superintendent of Schools
