Two Confirmed Cases of COVID-19

Dear Schalmont families,

We want to inform our community we learned today (January 20) that a Jefferson Elementary School student and a High School staff member have tested positive for COVID-19.

Neither of the individuals, however, have had any contact with students, faculty or staff that requires contact tracing or additional quarantining as they have not been on campus in some time. 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
