DeWitt Transitioning to Full Distance Learning through January 15

January 9, 2021

Dear DeWitt Middle School Community, 

The Tompkins County Health Department (TCHD) informed me that a DeWitt student has tested positive for COVID-19. We are collaborating with TCHD to aid them in contact tracing efforts. At this time, due to the number of students and staff who will be subject to quarantine, we must transition to full distance learning through Friday, January 15, 2021. We will resume in-person learning for students and staff on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 (the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is on Monday, January 18, 2021). 

I appreciate your understanding and support.
