Superintendent’s message about COVID-19 case

February 8, 2021

Dear Members of the Fort Plain Schools Community:

Over the weekend, we learned that an individual in the high school community tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last in school on Monday, February 1. Anyone identified as a close contact was contacted directly by the county health department.

The district is working closely with the Montgomery County Public Health Department, and they are advising 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.

John Bishop
Superintendent of Schools
