Oct. 8: Friday Update

Dear Parents and Families,

Happy Friday!

This week, we were excited to kick off our after school sports and clubs, which seemed to be enjoyed by all who participated.

We want to thank all of our families for their continued support and understanding of our COVID-19 protocols.  We certainly understand the challenges when children are symptomatic and require COVID testing prior to returning to school, but please know it is having the desired effect. Since our last update, we have had NO positive cases of COVID-19 in the Menands School community. 

The COVID-19 transmission rate in Albany County continues to be high (red);  all current safety protocols will remain in place. An effective way to reduce the transmission rate is to be vaccinated if you are eligible. Information on vaccination clinics in Albany County can be found here

Remember there is no school Monday October 11th.  Our regular Board of Education Meeting will be Tuesday October 12th at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Media Center.  Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend. The meeting will also be live streamed. 

As always, should you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out. Have a wonderful long weekend!

Dr. Long & Mrs. Cannavo
