Three Positive COVID-19 Cases

Dear Schalmont families,

We want to inform our community we learned today (January 10) that a Jefferson Elementary School staff member, a Middle School student and a High School student has tested positive for COVID-19.

None of the individuals, however, have had any contact with students that requires contact tracing or additional quarantining. The individuals will remain in quarantine but the Health Department informed us no further action is required.

Please know we will notify our entire school community whenever we have a confirmed case that requires others to quarantine. If the Health Department determines your child should quarantine due to possible exposure to COVID-19, you will receive a personal call from us to let you know and answer any questions you may have.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me ( or 518-355-9200 ext. 4001). We want to hear from you if you have concerns.

Thank you and be well.

Dr. Thomas Reardon
