The District was notified last night that two individuals at Tappan Zee High School have tested positive for COVID-19. No contact tracing was required for one case; for the other, exposure dates have been determined to be Monday, March 1 and Tuesday, March 2.
Due to the late hour of the report, contact tracing began but was not completed last night. Therefore, Tappan Zee High School will operate on a fully-remote basis today, March 4, and will reopen for hybrid in-person learning tomorrow, March 5.
Those identified as contacts of the individuals who tested positive may be contacted by the District 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.
