Our District was notified this morning that an individual who was at William O. Schaefer Elementary School on Wednesday, January 20 has tested positive for COVID-19.

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 are being contacted by the District and may also receive a call from a Contact Tracer from the Department of Health. Contact tracing will be completed this afternoon.

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.

WOS will dismiss as usual this afternoon.
