The Nassau County Department of Health will conduct contact tracing and inform those who may need to quarantine. Cooperation with the Department of Health is essential to determine the length of the school closure.  

Once the contact tracing is completed, I will be able to inform you as to the length of the closure. 

As always, the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff are our top priority.
