March 9: Coronavirus Update from Superintendent Stratton

March 9, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The COVID-19 Virus (Coronavirus) continues to impact not only countries around the world, but communities across the United States. Earlier this evening, the District learned that an individual that is employed at Corinth Central School District has been advised by the Saratoga County Health Office to be placed on a precautionary self-quarantine. This person has NOT been diagnosed with COVID-19 and shows NO symptoms related to the virus. The employee was in the proximity of a person diagnosed with the Coronavirus, therefore the Saratoga County Health Office is taking every precaution to assure the safety of the general public.

Our District’s first responsibility is to safeguard the health and wellbeing of its students, staff, and community. The District is monitoring the situation, and following the guidance of our local, state and federal health departments. The nature of the situation is fluid, and while no additional action is recommended at this time, we will continue to monitor this issue and follow any new guidance that may develop.

The District continues to take precautionary steps to disinfect the school building and buses on a regular basis. If you are sick, stay home to limit the spread of illness. Health concerns should be brought to a medical professional. Following basic hygiene practices are the best defense against the spread of illness.

If any further actions are required, the District will notify students and families as information becomes available.


Dr. Mark R. Stratton
Superintendent of Schools
