April 15, 2021
The Wynantskill UFSD received confirmation today that a middle school student and an elementary student have tested positive for COVID-19. The students have not been physically present in the building since April 1.
No contact tracing is required, per Rensselaer County Department of Health, due to the extended absence.
The county has advised the district to continue with its regular cleaning protocols. The building will be open as normal.
Due to privacy laws, we cannot divulge any further information about the positive individuals, and we ask that our families respect the positive individuals’ privacy.
We ask that all families continue to follow all safety guidelines outside of school hours including proper use of face coverings, social distancing, proper hand hygiene and avoiding large gatherings. We also remind you to please complete the daily health screening form for your child prior to sending them to school.
Please monitor your child(ren) for any symptoms of COVID-19 and report any absences and positive COVID-19 test results to your child’s school.
Thank you all for your continued support and ongoing efforts to keep Wynantskill UFSD safe and healthy. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns.
Dr. Mary Yodis
Wynantskill UFSD Superintendent
