Dear Parent/Guardian:

COVID 19 test positive rates are continuing to rise in Suffolk County and our community.  Over the last week, there have been several instances where it has taken multiple days for the school district to receive notification from the Suffolk County Department of Health regarding a positive COVID 19 test.  In order to help limit the spread of the virus in our schools, parents should immediately contact their building principal if their child has tested positive for COVID 19.

Sincerely,

Jeff Nichols

Superintendent of Schools
