COVID 12-1

A Message from the Superintendent
Posted on 12/01/2020

The Hoosic Valley Central School District has learned that a member of our school community tested positive for COVID-19 and is in isolation. They will not return to the school until released by the Rensselaer County Department of Health.

The individual was last at school on November 20th and was exposed the virus after that date. The individual has not been back at school since their exposure so no contact tracing in the school is necessary at this time.

All offices and schools will remain open.

The health and safety of the students, teachers and staff in our school community remains our top priority.

By continuing to practice social distancing, proper mask-wearing, handwashing and disinfecting both in school and in the larger community, we will continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together. 

Please encourage your student to continue to practice social distancing and mask-wearing outside of school any time they are in a public setting or visiting with friends.

All students and employees must continue to:  

  • Monitor your temperature and any symptoms.
  • Practice frequent hand washing.
  • Wear a face mask while in school, at school events or after-school activities, in public, or in close proximity to another individual.
  • NOT come to school if exhibiting any COVID-related symptoms.
  • Fill in the Health Check honestly, and notify the COVID Coordinator if there are any changes

If your student is in contact with someone that has tested positive, develops symptoms, takes a COVID test, or tests positive, please contact Michelle Przedwiecki, MPH, the COVID Coordinator at

Please note that privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot and will not identify anyone who has tested positive.

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of continuing to be conscientious and careful outside of the school to ensure your student’s health and safety. 

We continue to work closely with the Rensselaer County Department of Health and follow their guidance. Thank you all for your cooperation during this uncertain time.
