Due to a positive COVID-19 diagnosis of a First Student staff member, Onteora Middle and High School, as well as all out of District programs, will need to be fully remote tomorrow, Tuesday, April 20, 2021 for students. Middle and High School students will follow their regular class schedule from home. Our elementary buildings are scheduled for an asynchronous day tomorrow and this will remain the schedule. We are in the process of assessing the full impact of this positive diagnosis and the resulting required quarantines. We will provide an update as soon as we have additional information tomorrow. We are working with the UC Department of Health and our District Medical Director. We will follow all appropriate safety guidelines. We understand that this will present challenges and we apologize for the inconvenience.
