We are writing to inform you that this evening we were notified that an individual in the Queensbury Middle School community has tested positive for COVID-19. This positive case is tied to one of the positive cases at QHS earlier today.
As a result of this confirmed case, the middle school is transitioning to remote learning tomorrow, Oct. 2. In this instance, the transition to a remote learning day tomorrow will allow Warren County Public Health to complete the contact tracing process. As of right now, middle school classes are set to resume (as per the in-person learning schedule) on Monday, Oct. 5.
Following Warren County Public Health recommendations, those who were exposed to the positive individual are under a mandatory quarantine, which will last 14 days, regardless of testing negative for COVID-19. For anyone exposed, Warren County Public Health will reach out and advise on the need to quarantine and arrange for testing.
K-5 students will be following their normal in-person and/or remote schedule. This means that our elementary and intermediate school students will proceed as normal.
Please contact your building administrators if you would like more information about our health and safety procedures.
Any additional questions, including information about testing procedures, can be directed to Warren County Public Health at (518) 761-6580.
