Dear Northern Adirondack CSD Families:

Northern Adirondack Central School District was informed this morning, November 4th  that an individual from the Northern Adirondack Central School District community has tested positive for COVID-19.

Here are the details as presented by the Clinton County Health Department and NAC Protocol

  • The individual is a student who was last on campus on Friday, October 30, 2020
  • The individual started with COVID-19 like symptoms yesterday
  • The individual received a positive result on a rapid COVID-19 test today
  • The individual has a sibling and another relative in different grade levels that have been present on campus every day this week
  • The sibling and other relative are expected to be tested today, but neither have presented any COVID-19 like symptoms as of yet
  • There is no need to contact trace or quarantine any staff or students at this point, however the Clinton County Health Department is the leader in this process and will let us know if and when either are necessary
  • The bus that the individual’s sibling and other relative, like all of our school buses, has been sanitized daily after each bus run

Northern Adirondack Central School District will remain open and continue our current in-person and hybrid models of education.  We continue to diligently clean and disinfect our campus, while remaining in close contact with the Clinton County Health Department.

Please contact the building principal in the building that your child attends, or myself directly if you would like more information about our health and safety procedures.  Any additional questions, including information about testing procedures, can be directed to the Clinton County Health Department at (518) 565-4840.

                                                                                                            Thank you for your patience and support,

                                                                                                            Mr. James C. Knight, Jr.

                                                                                                            Superintendent of Schools
