Dear Milton Families, Faculty and Staff,

The District was informed this morning that an individual at Milton School has tested positive for COVID-19 and a second individual is symptomatic and presumed positive. The individuals are currently in quarantine and were last at the school on Monday and Tuesday, November 16 and 17. Due to federal health privacy laws, additional information about the individuals cannot be released.

We are working closely with the Westchester County Department of Health and, as always, the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. This morning, the District contacted the families of students and faculty and staff who will need to quarantine via both phone and email. If you did not receive a call and an email from the District, this means that based on the guidance received from the Department of Health, your student or you as a faculty or staff member did not meet their criteria for quarantine. The Department of Health will also be conducting contact tracing for this case using contact information provided by the District; however, we understand that their call backlog is significant and those calls may not come today.

For more information about the WCDOH protocols for handling COVID-19 issues, please see their FAQ (HERE) and the NYSDOH guidance for COVID-19 decision-making (COVID-19 Toolkit).

Please be assured that we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Milton community safe.

Sincerely,

Eric Byrne, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
