Today, we learned that an additional individual at Pelham Middle School has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual was last in the building on Friday, January 15. Due to the number of staff who must quarantine because of their exposure at school, we have extended the PMS building closure through Monday, January 25. We will continue to monitor cases through the weekend and are hopeful of reopening under the hybrid plan on Tuesday, January 26. We will notify you if there are any changes to this plan.
All families whose children need to quarantine as a result of their school exposure have been notified. If you did not receive a notification via email, then your child does not have to quarantine or seek testing for COVID-19.
As always, please continue to monitor your/your child’s health and contact your doctor or the Department of Health if they are showing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, such as:
Fever equal to or greater than 100.0 degrees F
Congestion or runny nose
Muscle or body aches
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Loss of taste or smell
Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
If testing is recommended, a list of testing sites is available on the Westchester County Department of Health website under the testing, results and treatment tab. Additionally, you may call the NYS COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065 for assistance locating a testing site.
Feel free to contact us or the school nurse if you have any additional questions or concerns. We appreciate your patience, understanding and cooperation during these challenging times.
As always, our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19.

Pelham Middle School
