Jan. 2 COVID-19 update

Dear Schuylerville families,

We’d like to update you with our plans as we approach the end of the holiday break for our faculty, staff and students.

Currently, there is an uptick of COVID-19 cases locally and in our county. We do plan for students to return for in-person learning on Monday, Jan. 4, but a pivot to remote learning could happen any day thereafter depending on the continued infection rate. Families should be ready for a shift to a temporary model of remote instruction.

Today, the district has learned of two individuals who tested positive for COVID-19:

  • One Schuylerville High School student (last in school Dec. 16, tested positive Dec. 29, no resulting additional quarantines)
  • One Schuylerville Elementary School staff member (last in school Dec. 23, tested positive Dec. 31, no resulting additional quarantines)

Since learning of the positive cases, the district has been working in conjunction with Saratoga County Public Health Services to contact trace. At this time, all individuals who need to quarantine have been contacted.

Please note that 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.

If you have any questions, please reach out to COVID-19 Coordinator, Gregg Barthelmas. Thank you.

Dr. Ryan Sherman
