Dear Osborn Families, Faculty and Staff,
The District was informed late last evening that an individual at Osborn School has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is currently in quarantine and was last at the school on Tuesday, November 17. Due to federal health privacy laws, additional information about the individual 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. The District is contacting the families of students and faculty and staff who will need to quarantine via both phone and email. If you do 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. We will send a follow up email to the community when we have completed contacting all of the impacted individuals. 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.
Please be assured that we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Osborn community safe.
Eric Byrne, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
