A Health Related Message From the Superintendent of Schools May 5

Since the last message was sent, the district was made aware of the following students and staff members who have reported testing positive for COVID-19. 

Daniel Street Elementary School -- 1 staff member The contact tracing investigation for this staff member case is complete and all close contacts have been informed by the district that they need to quarantine for 10 days.  

Lindenhurst High School -- 1 student: This student is enrolled in the district's full remote instructional program and therefore no contact tracing was required.

As a district, we have taken all of the necessary precautions to keep our staff and students safe. It is imperative that as a community we remain vigilant and follow the recommendations and protocols provided by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, https://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/Health-Services/Health-Bulletins/Novel-Coronavirus/SCDHS-COVID19-Guidance-and-Services, when we are outside of school as well to avoid an even greater increase in positive cases. 

I remind you to please report positive cases directly to the established COVID19Positive@lufsd.org email address and not to your child’s teacher. Additionally, if when you complete the health screening electronically, you receive a red stop sign screen on your display, please know that you cannot come to school on that day.
