Positive COVID-19 Case at IHS, In-Person Learning to Continue

January 9, 2021

Dear Ithaca High School Community, 

The Tompkins County Health Department (TCHD) has notified me that an in-person IHS student has tested positive for COVID-19. We are collaborating with TCHD to aid them in contact tracing efforts. All staff and students who will be subject to quarantine will be contacted by the TCHD and/or ICSD staff. Those who are close contacts will continue distance learning and teaching through their TCHD-imposed quarantine period. 

Due to redeployment of staff throughout the school district, the remainder of the school can continue in-person and distance learning. The remarkable commitment to young people our staff display each day is appreciated. 

For more information about contact tracing and the Ithaca City School District’s role in supporting those efforts, please visit our website. I appreciate your understanding and support.
