    Due to the anticipated snow and ice storm arriving this afternoon, Greenwood Lake Elementary School will be dismissing at 12:30 pm. Greenwood Lake Middle School will also wrap up Remote eLearning schedules at that time. All elementary students will be served lunch before being sent home.

  • A Letter from the Superintendent 1-25-21

    Today, the District learned that a student from our middle school tested positive for COVID-19 based on a diagnostic test. Department of Health protocols call for contact tracing for the 48-hour period prior to the test or symptom onset. Contact tracing has been conducted and individuals identified as first contacts (needing to quarantine) have already been notified. The CoVid positive individual is currently isolating, and due to federal health privacy laws, further information about their identity cannot be released. Each positive case serves as an important reminder that we can help stop the spread by following the guidance of the state and local health departments.

  • Important Update

    Today we were notified of a CoVid positive teacher at our Middle School. Due to the number of individuals this teacher came in contact with, we are still creating our list of first contacts. Once contact tracing is complete, I will send out an email to every affected student’s parents this afternoon notifying them of the need to quarantine. That said, the number of CURRENT CoVid positive individuals at our middle school has now reached six, with a highly likely seventh person. Due to the highly concentrated number of positive cases in a short amount of time, I have made the decision to close our middle school building to students for all of next week.

  • A Letter from the Superintendent 1-21-21

    Today, the District learned that a student from our middle school tested positive for COVID-19 based on a diagnostic test. The individual was not in the building during what the health department considers the contagious period, and therefore is not deemed to be an exposure threat to any students or employees. Each positive case serves as an important reminder that we can help stop the spread by following the guidance of the state and local health departments. The most important things you can do: • Make sure your child is wearing a mask. • Make sure your child washes hands frequently. • Keep your child home if they are sick. • Call your primary care provider if you or your child has symptoms.

  • A Letter from the Superintendent 1-20-21

    This evening, the District learned that four individuals from our middle school tested positive for COVID-19 based on a diagnostic test – one teacher and three students. Department of Health protocols call for contact tracing for the 48-hour period prior to the test or symptom onset. For two of the individuals, contact tracing has been conducted and individuals identified as first contacts (needing to quarantine) have already been notified. The CoVid positive individuals are currently isolating, and due to federal health privacy laws, further information about their identity cannot be released. The other two individuals were not in the building during what the health department considers the contagious period, and therefore are not deemed to be an exposure threat to any students or employees. Each positive case serves as an important reminder that we can help stop the spread by following the guidance of the state and local health departments.
