Positive COVID-19 case at MHS; school will operate as scheduled

Dear Monticello CSD Community Member,

Earlier today, we were informed that a student at Monticello High School tested positive for COVID19. This student was last in school on June 1, 2021.

The student was in contact with approximately 15 students who, we believe, will most likely be quarantined.

After conferring with Sullivan County Public Health Services and due to no staff members placed on quarantine, the school will remain open to in-person instruction.

All areas of the were cleaned and disinfected yesterday, and we’ll continue to clean and disinfect our schools consistent with our COVID-19 protocols. We have reported those identified as possible contacts to Sullivan County PHS.

Our staff have also contacted all who have been tentatively identified as contacts of their exposure.

If you or your child are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please contact your health care provider. For more information on contact tracing and illness management, please review the New York State Department of Health’s Pre-K to Grade 12 COVID-19 Toolkit.

We hope that all of you remain healthy, or, if sick, recover soon.

Stay well.
With Monti Pride,
Matthew T. Evans, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
