Superintendent’s message about COVID-19 case

January 18, 2021

Dear Members of the Fort Plain Schools Community:

We learned on Monday, January 18, that three members of our school community have tested positive for COVID-19. There is one case at the high school and two at Harry Hoag. All those impacted for contact tracing have been contacted directly.

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
