Please see the following message from Superintendent Chevrier.

All 2021-2022 school COVID-19 updates can be found on the district’s 2021-2022 Reopening & COVID-19 Updates page here.

Late last evening (September 26) the district was notified that an individual at Castleton Elementary had tested positive for COVID-19 and we worked with the Rensselaer County Department of Health to conduct our school-based contact tracing. 

All individuals who were possibly exposed to this case and must quarantine were contacted last evening. They did not come to school today. If you were not directly contacted last evening no further action is needed on your part.

Additionally, we were notified this afternoon of two additional individuals at CES who have tested positive for COVID-19. However, there was no in-school exposure to these cases and no contact tracing was necessary.   

While we understand many would like additional details when there is a positive case, due to privacy laws we cannot release any further identifiable information about the affected individuals.

If your child displays any COVID-19 symptoms (a list of which can be found here), please keep them at home and contact your family doctor for further guidance.

Additionally, please remember the following if your own student or someone in your household tests positive:

  • In the event someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, contact your school and inform them of the positive case
  • Keep everyone in the household at home until you hear from the Rensselaer County Health Department.

It is crucial that our schools, families and county health department continue working together to keep each other safe.
