Dear BKW families,
The administration has been notified that two individuals in the Elementary School have tested positive for COVID-19. One individual was last in the building on September 17, and the other individual was last in the building on September 22.
We are working closely with the Albany County Department of Health on contact tracing. The Department of Health will reach out to all contacts and advise them concerning quarantine, testing and other health-related instructions.
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 know it is important to keep you informed while also respecting the federal and state laws that prohibit the release of confidential medical information.
We continue to work closely with county health officials and follow their guidance on how to maintain a healthy learning environment. Thank you for your cooperation and partnership in keeping our schools safe.
Timothy Mundell, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
