On Thursday, Jan. 7, the Arkport Central School District learned that one member of the school community has tested positive for COVID-19.
We are currently working closely with the Steuben County Department of Health to identify this individual’s contacts at the school. Any students or staff members who have been in close contact with this individual will be directly contacted by the department of health to discuss if/how long they should quarantine and make arrangements for testing.
Please note that privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive, however; at the end of each school day, the district will report the number of confirmed cases to the New York State Department of Health. This information will be publicly available on the New York State COVID Report Card dashboard.
If you have any questions, please contact Jesse Harper, Superintendent of Schools at 607-295-7471 ext. 1121.
