Warren County Public Health and the New York State Department of Health determined that the risk of transmission was low and that only one individual has been quarantined. At this time, the district remains open for in-person instruction. The individual followed COVID-19 protocols at all times, in accordance with the district’s safety plan.

Since the start of the school year, the district has been thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting all buildings on campus, in accordance with guidance from the New York State Department of Health and the CDC. More information can be found in the cleaning and disinfecting section of the reopening plan.

At this time, our district remains open for in-person instruction under the guidance of Warren County Public Health. Please contact your building administrators if you would like more information about our health and safety procedures.
