Dear Osborn School Families, Faculty and Staff,

The District was informed 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, December 8. 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. Today, the District has contacted via telephone the families of students along with faculty and staff who we have been told will need to quarantine. If you did not receive a phone 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 expect that the Department of Health will also be contacting individuals impacted by this case using contact information provided by the District; however, we understand that their call backlog is significant and those calls may not come immediately.

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 Osborn School community safe.

Sincerely,

Eric Byrne, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
