The district was notified that a teacher at Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School tested positive for COVID-19. The teacher was last in the building on March 15. All those who are at risk of exposure have been contacted by district staff with instruction about self-quarantine.
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
