COVID-19 Update

Members of the Rensselaer City School District,

We were notified late last night that a Jr/Sr high school student has been diagnosed with COVID-19.  We were able to confirm this case with the Rensselaer County Department of Health today.  This person was last in the building on Monday.  All contact tracing was proactively completed last night.  All identified contacts have been notified.

We continue to work closely with the Rensselaer County Health Department.  We will follow the NYSDOH established A, B, C’s of contact tracing and the NYSDOH school guidance.

As an important reminder, please do not enter the building if you do not meet the screening criteria.  If you have been in direct contact with a COVID-19 positive person, do not come in.  If you have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting results, do not come in.  If you are experiencing any new or unexpected COVID-19 symptoms, do not come in.

Thanks in advance to all of you for helping and doing your part to keep the community safe.  We want to do everything that we can to keep school open, our #fRAMily together, and continue live instruction safely.
