Superintendent’s message about COVID-19 case
February 4, 2021
Dear Members of the Fort Plain Schools Community:
We learned today, February 4, that an individual in the high school community tested positive for COVID-19. They were last in school on Monday, and while they did not have close contact with others, anyone impacted has been contacted directly.
The district continues to work closely with the Montgomery County Public Health Department, and they advise on any necessary quarantine. Please note that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.
We will continue to work closely with the health department and keep you advised of any further information. Our goal remains to keep our schools open and safe for students and staff alike. Please contact my office with any questions. Thank you.
Superintendent of Schools
