Dear Members of the Fort Plain School Community:
The district learned on Thursday, December 3, that a member of the Fort Plain School community tested positive last week for COVID-19. The infected person has not been on campus since November 10, and the Montgomery County Public Health Department has advised us that there is no impact on students or staff.
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 are sending this message to keep you informed, and to reassure you that we continue to work closely with the health department to ensure the safety of our Fort Plain School community.
Please contact my office with any questions. Thank you.
Superintendent of Schools
