February 11: Notification of Positive COVID-19 Case

WSWHE BOCES has learned that an individual associated with the F. Donald Myers Education Center in Saratoga Springs who was last in the building on 2/8/2021, tested positive for COVID-19.  

This notification to parents and guardians is part of our commitment to keep you informed about COVID-19 cases. WSWHE BOCES continues to work closely with our county health partners and follow their guidance each time there is a positive case. Please note that privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information, and WSWHE BOCES cannot identify anyone who has tested positive. If you have additional questions or have reason to believe that you or your child were exposed, please visit the Saratoga County website or the Washington County website for more information.

Please continue to complete the Pinpoint Wellness Check Health Screening Tool when your child is scheduled to attend school in-person and be vigilant about following all CDC health and safety protocols and social gathering guidelines.  

WSWHE BOCES requests that if children are in direct contact with other household members who are awaiting COVID-19 test results that they stay home from school. This helps to decrease the possibility of transmission within the school if that household member turns out to be positive.
