COVID-19 Update 5/2/21
05/02/2021
The district learned this afternoon that one member of our school community tested positive for COVID-19. This case is being handled by the Washington County Department of Public Health in collaboration with the school. The investigation determined that a small number of students and staff had close contact with the positive case and therefore must transition to virtual instruction and serve a precautionary quarantine. This small number of students and staff will receive notification this evening from the school. This positive case will not require our school to PAUSE. In person instruction will go on as scheduled for tomorrow, Monday, May 3rd.

Legislative Priorities
01/28/2021
Fort Edward along with several other local schools established Legislative Priorities as a part of ongoing advocacy with our NYS Legislators. These priorities were shared publicly during a virtual event on Friday, January 22nd. Both members that represent Fort Edward School, Senator Stec and Assemblywoman Woerner, attended the event. Fort Edward Senior Heather Miller was chosen to serve as a member of the 5 student panel that represented the 38,000 school children that attend the schools in our BOCES area. The student panel, moderated by Mr. Ward, provided feedback to the Legislators on several relevant topics that students are dealing with right now including, school closures, online instruction, and athletics. Thanks to Heather for representing her peers and the FORT in such a positive fashion.

Parent Pickup and Drop off instructions
11/19/2020
One change for parents needing to enter the school in the morning or any other time for school related concerns. Parents/Guardians and others will need to wait until after all students have been screened and admitted to the building. Parents and guardians must make an appointment ahead of time with a specific staff member before coming to school. Email, phone calls and video conferencing is preferred over in person meetings. The school will accommodate in person requests if absolutely necessary, but will do so by appointment only. If a parent or guardian is simply dropping something off for a student they can do so between 9am and 2pm, but they will be asked to leave it in the foyer and will not be allowed into the building. If the item being dropped off is medication a staff member will come to the foyer to receive it.

All students are required to have a health screening prior to entering the school buildings.

Additionally we are strongly recommending using the online screening as this will be the most efficient way for screening to be verified and will expedite student entry in the morning.
