South Orangetown Central School District

Dear South Orangetown Families and Staff,

The District has been notified of an additional positive case at Tappan Zee High School. This individual tested positive yesterday after having been in the building on Monday, December 7.

Contact tracing should be completed today. Those identified as contacts of the person who tested positive will be contacted by the District and/or a Contact Tracer from the Department of Health.

For Department of Health contact tracing calls:

  • The caller ID may read “NYS Contact Tracing” or display a phone number with a 518 area code.
  • Please promptly answer these calls.
  • Your identity and the information you share will remain confidential.
  • Please provide Contact Tracers with the information they need to protect our entire School District community.

Due to the impact of quarantine on our staffing resulting from the two cases reported within the past three days, TZHS will transition to fully-remote learning through Wednesday, December 23.

Thank you,

Robert R. Pritchard, Ed.D.
Superintendent of School
