Dear Members of the Fort Plain Schools Community:
We learned late in the afternoon of January 4 that a member of the Jr./Sr. High School community has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual has not been in school since before the holiday break. The district continues to work closely with the Montgomery County Public Health Department, who will advise the individual on any further steps.
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.
While there is no action that Fort Plain students or staff need to take at this time, we will keep you informed of any further developments and continue to work with the health department to ensure the safety of our school community.
Please contact my office with any questions. Thank you.
Superintendent of Schools
