Parents / Guardians,
Today Governor Cuomo announced that the New York State School COVID Report Card online dashboard is live. School districts across the state must input data on the number of students who have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
At the present time, the dashboard displays that six students have tested positive at Averill Park High School. This is inaccurate. Prior to school starting, we shared information with you about two students who tested positive. These students did not enter our buildings as it was before the first day of in-person class. These students are the only students who have tested positive in our District.
While sending this data to the state’s new dashboard, this information was erroneously reported multiple times, which has led to the inaccurate information being displayed on the dashboard. We are currently working with the state to correct this error so that our information is accurately reflected.
We apologize for any unnecessary stress this inaccurate reporting has caused.
