Our District was notified that an individual at Cottage Lane Elementary School tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. Due to the timing of symptom onset, the exposure dates have been determined to be Wednesday, January 13 and Thursday, January 14.

Our administrators are working collaboratively with the Rockland County Department of Health and cooperating with contact tracing efforts. Those who were identified as contacts of the person who tested positive will be contacted by the District by tonight and may also receive a call from a Contact Tracer from the Department of Health.

For such calls, your 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.
