Secondary School student test positive for COVID-19 | All instruction on Friday, Oct. 23 will be remote

On Thursday, Oct. 22, the district was notified that a Secondary School student has tested positive for COVID-19.

This district has contacted Sullivan County Public Health and have begun formal contact tracing procedures. Every individual identified as a “primary contact” will receive a notification from the school this evening and from the New York State Contact Tracing Unit in the next few days.  These individuals will be required to remain in quarantine for the next 14 days, as will members of their families living with them.

Out of an abundance of caution, the Tri-Valley School District buildings will be closed to all students and staff (other than the maintenance and cleaning departments) on Friday, Oct. 23 and all instruction will be remote.

The school will reopen to hybrid learning on Monday, Oct.  26.

As always, I thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this difficult time! I urge you to follow all CDC guidelines regarding the wearing of masks, hand-washing and eliminating all unnecessary travel. It is my sincere desire that our community remains safe and we can keep the school open and functioning as normally as is possible.

Thank you and be well!

Mike Williams
Superintendent of Schools
