Earlier this morning (3/13), the AuSable Valley Central School District was notified of a confirmed COVID case in the Keeseville Elementary School. We have been, and will continue to be, working closely with the Clinton and Essex County Health Departments’ contact tracing teams. All affected individuals have already been, or will soon be, contacted directly by the Contact Tracers.
The room that housed the student will be deep-cleaned before students or staff are allowed to return to that space. Common areas have been and will continue to be disinfected on a routine basis.
At this time the Health Department does not have any information that would warrant temporary closure of the classroom or the building.
