Community Update Nov.
Lakeland Families,
 
Late yesterday our Director of Athletics, Dan Belfi, received notification from the North Salem School District that one of their Field Hockey players had tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, contact tracing was necessary for players and officials who were at the Friday, November 20 game. After reviewing the contact information, all players and officials who were considered contacts were notified that they would need to quarantine.
 
Mid-morning today, Dr. Frank Yanoti, acting principal at Vancortlandtville Elementary School, was contacted by the parents of an A cohort student that was identified as COVID positive. The student had last attended school on November 16th, and had remained out of school due to COVID-like symptoms. The student’s physician informed parents today, November 24th that the student tested as COVID positive and they immediately informed the school. Dr. Yanoti worked with his team to provide contact information to the DOH, and to notify students’ families of their requirements for quarantine. Students and staff who were in attendance today were notified and exited the building shortly after they were identified as contacts.
 
Both contact lists have been shared with the Westchester Department of Health. Students and officials should await contact by the department of health for further details.
 
I wish you a peaceful and relaxing Thanksgiving. Be well and stay safe.
 
Brendan Lyons, Ed. D.
Superintendent

Tonight’s update contains important updates related to current conditions in the District as well as answers to questions that we have been community update November, r12020receiving. 


Unfortunately, we were notified of two additional COVID contact cases in the Lakeland Central School District. Three other cases were reported as well, but had been quarantining and were not in contact with other staff or students. 


We were informed that a COVID positive student case had been identified at Lakeland High School who was in contact with staff and students. Contact tracing was completed  and students and staff exited the building as soon as they were identified as contacts.


Based on the total number of cases, as well as the frequency of new positives, the regional case rates, and the overlapping quarantining of staff and students alike, our district physician recommended that we transition LHS to remote learning from Monday, November 23 through December 4. Students and staff who must quarantine due to contact have been notified. 


In addition to the Lakeland High School contact, a Benjamin Franklin Elementary School student was reported as having tested COVID positive. Contact tracing was completed  and students and staff exited the building as soon as they were identified as contacts. The class which included the COVID positive case will be on remote instruction Monday and Tuesday and will return Monday the 30. All other staff and students will return for hybrid instruction on Monday November 23.... Click here to continue reading update letter
