BOONVILLE- Officials from Adirondack Central School say that the district is in the process of reaching out to families who need to follow quarantine procedures.

This is according to a letter on Sunday from Superintendent Edward Niznik. On Friday, the school announced their first case of COVID-19 since the academic year began.

The case was a student, but officials did not specify which school building or grade level the case is associated with.

Those families who are not contacted by the health department or by the school district may continue sending their child to attend class in-person per their regular schedule.

If your family is contacted, officials will explain what the quarantine requires. According to officials, a quarantine (relevant to the school district) will last 14-days from the last known contact specific to your child.

If your child ever does test positive for COVID-19, authorities are asking that you make sure to contact the school nurse and to refrain from sharing or posting any of that information via social media.

Niznik said the school is working with the county health department. He further explained that risk of spread and exposure to the virus is more likely to be minimalized if proper health guidelines are followed.

A full list of COVID-19 resources may be found by visiting the school's website
