EMS to Continue Remote Learning Thru 12/11/20
Posted on 11/24/2020
On the afternoon of Monday, Nov. 23, the district was notified that an employee at East Middle School tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Two employees were quarantined as a result. This afternoon Tuesday, Nov. 24 two EMS employees tested positive for the COVID-19 virus through the district’s surveillance testing program. There was no association between the two cases or any previous cases at East Middle. The contract tracing protocol revealed there were no individuals at the school building placed in quarantine associated with one case. The other case may have resulted in quarantining two students. Information regarding these individuals' identities cannot be released. After receiving the positive results, the individuals were discreetly notified and promptly left the building. If there was any person in direct or proximate contact with these individuals outside of the school building, they will be contacted by the Broome County Health Department and placed in quarantine, per New York State Department of Health guidelines. The impacted areas of the building are being disinfected.
Due to the increase in positive cases over the past seven days at East Middle School, East Middle School will continue with remote learning after the Thanksgiving break until Friday, Dec. 11th. In-person/Hybrid instruction will resume on Monday, December 14th.
