April 23 Update: Positive COVID-19 case reported

A confirmed positive case of COVID-19 has been reported in the Watervliet Elementary School community. All contacts associated with the case have been identified and notified of the need to quarantine as a precaution.

A reminder that any day (Monday through Friday) that our district is made aware of a confirmed case of COVID-19 among students or staff members, we will share this information via One Call Now email and post an update on our website. We do not email or post notifications on days with no new cases.

We also remind students, families and staff members that COVID-19 is still a risk so it is important to continue to practice safety protocols outside of school, which include limiting group gatherings, practicing good hygiene, wearing masks and following social distance guidelines.

Please DO NOT send your child to school or come to work when feeling sick or exhibiting any of the following symptoms: fever, fatigue/tiredness, muscle/body aches or pains, congestion, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea, headache, loss of taste or smell, rash, feeling sick or unwell in any way.

If you or your child are experiencing symptoms, please contact your health care provider immediately. COVID-19 testing information is available by calling the New York State Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline at (888) 364-3065 or visit the Albany County Department of Health website.
