Today (Sunday, Feb. 21) the District was notified that a student at Castleton Elementary School has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. We have been in contact with the Rensselaer County Department of Health and have determined that there is no need for school-based contact tracing due to the last time the individual was in the building.

While we understand that you might like additional details, due to privacy laws we cannot release any identifiable information about the individuals or affected students.

As always, the health and safety of students and staff is the District’s top priority and we appreciate your cooperation and diligence during this time.
