Superintendent’s message about COVID-19 case

December 11, 2020

Dear Members of the Fort Plain Schools Community:

We learned late this afternoon, Friday, Dec. 11, that an individual in the high school tested positive for COVID-19. The district is working closely with the Montgomery Public Health Department, and it’s been determined that school can remain open and follow the regular hybrid learning schedule on Monday. Any potentially impacted areas will be deep cleaned and disinfected before students and staff return. The health department is handling contact tracing and 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.

lease be assured that 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
