Dear MCS families,
The district learned of a single positive COVID-19 case in the Jr. Sr. High School on the evening of Wednesday, November 11. Because of this, both the elementary school and the high school will be closed on Thursday, November 12 to allow time for the Schoharie Health Department to perform a situation review and thorough contact tracing.
Please note that out of district students will have school and transportation will continue as scheduled.
Middleburgh Central School District continues to thoroughly clean and disinfect all buildings on campus, in accordance with requirements from the New York State Department of Health and the CDC. This instance reminds us of how crucial it is for all of us to do our part by wearing a mask, social distancing, washing our hands, and avoiding group gatherings.
It is important to understand that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any identifiable information about a person who has tested positive.
District officials are working closely with the Schoharie Health Department. As we get more information, we will contact all parents with updates and next steps. Thank you for your patience as we navigate these challenging times together.
Superintendent of Schools
