Superintendent’s message about COVID-19 case

December 18, 2020

Dear Members of the Fort Plain Schools Community:

We learned this morning, Friday, December 18, that another individual at Harry Hoag School has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last in school on December 16. The district is working closely with the Montgomery County Public Health Department, and they are 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.

We will continue to work closely with the health department and keep you advised of any further information. Our goal remains unchanged: 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
