Maine-Endwell Halts Special Ed Program Due to COVID-19 Case
A Maine-Endwell School District summer special education class is on hold after the confirmation of a COVID-19 case involving a person enrolled in the program.
In a statement, district superintendent Jason Van Fossen said administrators were notified of the development on Sunday by the Broome County health department.
Van Fossen said the school district is working with health officials on self-quarantining and testing procedures for faculty, staff and students.
The affected class has been cancelled for a period of two weeks dating back to the exposure date, which was determined to be July 27. All of those involved have been advised to stay home.
Van Fossen said district officials will consult with the health department to whether the remainder of the summer program should be canceled.
The superintendent said people with questions about the situation may contact his office.
