COVID Updates
Posted on 02/07/2021

The Hoosic Valley Central School District had one member of our school community test positive for COVID-19 this week. They were isolated and will not return to the school until released by the Department of Health.

There was one case at the Elementary School. The individual that tested positive was already in quarantine so we did not need to conduct any contact tracing at the schools.

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 for any symptoms. If symptomatic, stay home and call the school nurse or COVID Coordinator.
  • 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. 

If your student develops symptoms, takes a COVID test, or tests positive, please contact Michelle Przedwiecki, MPH, the COVID Coordinator at 753-4458 x2112 or

Please also remember to call either the COVID Coordinator, the school nurse or the attendance office if your student is expected to be in school and will be absent. If you do not call before 8 in the morning you will get a phone call from the school.

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.
