Good Afternoon, I wanted to provide a bit more clarification regarding the impact of COVID-19 on our district. We currently have 1 COVID positive scholar in our high school. Additionally, in our high school we have ten faculty and staff members and 54 scholars in precautionary quarantine as directed by the DOH. We have one COVID positive scholar in our elementary school, two COVID positive faculty and staff members, and one staff member and 16 scholars in quarantine. In our middle school we currently have one COVID positive scholar and two other scholars in quarantine. From our department of transportation we have one staff member in quarantine. We continue to work closely with our community and the DOH in monitoring the local impact. Please keep those affected in your thoughts. We are thinking of you all and wish you improved health in the days that come. Respectfully, Kimberly Bell Superintendent
November 7, 2020 Dear Trumansburg Community: I regret to inform you that we have learned of yet another positive COVID-19 case at our District. This case is a scholar in the high school. We are currently working with the Tompkins County Department of Health to notify all individuals that have had exposure. The quarantine period for those impacted, including teachers, extends to November 18, 2020. I anticipate we will learn of additional cases as the week progresses. To safeguard our school community and prevent additional exposure, we will maintain 100% remote instruction through Friday, November 20, 2020. Keep in mind that Monday, November 23, and Tuesday, November 24, were scheduled as remote learning days. This will not change. Therefore, the first day back for in person instruction will be Monday, November 30. It is important to reiterate in these most difficult of circumstances; we will still win the battle to educate our scholars. We will need to work differently and harder; however, I am confident we can achieve our work toward this common goal despite these temporary obstacles. Please look for additional information from building principals and/or your child's teacher(s) in the coming days. I wish your family and loved ones good health and well-being. Please keep those that have been impacted in your thoughts. Have a joyous Thanksgiving! Sincerely, Kimberly Bell Superintendent of Schools

November 6, 2020 Good evening! Please listen for an important update from our School Superintendent, Kimberly Bell. We have received word this evening, Friday November 6 that we have a positive COVID-19 case amongst our Elementary School personnel. We anticipate there may be at least one other positive case but are awaiting test results. The Department of Health will contact those individuals that may have had possible exposure. Acting out of an exorbitant amount of precaution, we will move to 100% remote instruction Pre-K-Grade 12 effective Monday, November 9, 2020- through Friday, November 13, 2020. For those programs that take place off campus, such as PTECH or CTE and other BOCES programs, families will receive a separate communication this weekend from your building principal with details. Thank you for your understanding. We wish for all your families safety and good health. Kind regards, Kimberly Bell Superintendent
