Positive COVID-19 Case at JES

Dear Schalmont families,

We want to inform our community we learned today (January 8) that a staff member at Jefferson Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19.

We have already contacted families who the Schenectady County Department of Health advised us should quarantine their children as a precaution. The school will remain open for instruction as closing our school is not recommended.

Please know that the health and safety of your children is our top priority. We thank the tireless efforts of the county Health Department for their continued guidance and help.

If you have any questions at all please make sure to contact us. We want to hear from you if you have concerns. You can contact me (treardon@schalmont.net or 518-355-9200 ext. 4001), Principal Joby Gifford (jgifford@schalmont.net or 518-355-1342 ext. 5002) or School Nurse Coordinator Tara Bush (tbush@schalmont.net or 518-355-6110 ext. 3041).

Thank you and be safe,

Dr. Thomas Reardon
