Dear Whitney Point Families,
The Whitney Point Central School District has been working with the Broome County Health Department as we have received notification of two additional High School students with confirmed cases of COVID-19. Information regarding these individual’s identity cannot be released. We ask that you please respect their privacy.
According to the New York State Department of Health guidelines, any person who was in contact with a confirmed case will be quarantined by the Broome County Health Department for up to 10 days.
A contact tracing investigation is underway, and the Broome County Health Department will contact anyone exposed. The Whitney Point School District will also make every effort to reach students and employees that are known contacts of confirmed cases in the district.
We will continue to monitor these situations and keep our community informed.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work to ensure the safety of everyone in our district. We will provide any additional updates via the Whitney Point District Website, www.wpcsd.org
Dr. Patricia A. Follette
