Today (Wednesday, Feb. 17) the District was notified that a student at Poestenkill Elementary School and a staff member at Miller Hill-Sand Lake Elementary School, who also works in the Transportation Department, have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. We have been in contact with the Rensselaer County Department of Health to determine school-based close contacts. Individuals who may need to quarantine have been contacted.

While we understand that you might like additional details, due to privacy laws we cannot release any identifiable information about the individuals or affected students.

As always, the health and safety of students and staff is the District’s top priority and we appreciate your cooperation and diligence during this time.
