Announcements

  • Dear Newark CSD Families and Staff:

    The Wayne County Department of Public Health (WCDPH) informed us today that a staff member from Kelley School has tested positive for COVID-19. The staff member was last present at school on Friday, October 16, 2020. Per privacy guidelines, no additional identifying information can be shared.

    On Wednesday, (10/21/2020), we had a positive test for a student which resulted in the quarantine of one classroom at Kelley School.  The nature of the above-mentioned staff member’s assignment put them in contact with additional Kelley School classrooms.  This has led us, together with WCDPH, to close the Kelley School building for 14 days from 10/16/2020.  This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution to keep our school community safe.  Remote instruction will be provided during this period of building closure and more specific information will be coming from Mr. Hamelinck and your child’s teacher for Kelley School students only.  Unless there are further developments, Kelley School will reopen for in-person instruction on 11/02/2020. 

    Currently, the NYS Department of Health is requiring mandatory two-week quarantines and contact tracing for select students and staff, who will be notified directly by the WCDPH.  If you are not contacted by Public Health, no further action is required on your part.  The Kelley staff member does not have assignments or close contacts in any other school building, so WCDPH has advised us that there is no need for further action in any of our other school buildings.  We are following all WCDPH recommendations and they have been a great partner through this process. 

    As the weather turns colder and more of our activities are inside, the likelihood of positive COVID-19 cases will increase.  If we continue to practice proper hand hygiene, physical distancing and most importantly, wearing face coverings, we will minimize risk of spread and exposure.  Safeguarding the health and safety of our schools is our highest priority.  Please continue to practice these safety precautions.

    If you have any questions regarding this or other COVID-19 related concerns, please contact your child’s building principal or me. You also will find helpful resources posted on the COVID-19 Information and Resources section of our website.

    Matt Cook, Superintendent of Schools
