Superintendent’s message about COVID-19 case

December 17, 2020

Dear Members of the Fort Plain Schools Community:

We learned late this afternoon, Thursday, December 17, that an individual at Harry Hoag School has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last in school on December 10. The district is working closely with the Montgomery County Public Health Department, and they are handling contact tracing and advising on any necessary quarantine.

Following the guidance of the health department, all 6th grade students will be learning remotely through December 23. Any potentially impacted areas of the school will be deep cleaned and disinfected.

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
