Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Updates
COVID Update — June 16, 2021
Dear Members of the Brighton School Community,
- Since our last update, there have been 0 new positive COVID case as confirmed by Monroe County.
- No additional member of the school community are in official quarantine as directed by the Monroe County Department of Public Health. Other individuals are self-isolating or quarantining at the request of their doctor, school personnel or of their own accord while awaiting additional contact tracing.
This is quite a landmark, Brighton. It has been since early in the fall when our numbers dropped this low. Thank you for everything you have done to stay healthy and keep each other healthy. It’s so exciting to be turning the corner.
There are no changes to masking. We’re making some adjustments for graduation which are being communicated by Brighton High School. Please note that announcements about lifting restrictions that were made by the Governor yesterday specifically excluded schools for the time being. We’re awaiting their guidance for the summer and reopening, but are optimistic about the opportunities that are provided by such low infection numbers and the significant number of people vaccinated in our area. Again, great work.
We’re almost there. Thank you!
Kevin McGowan, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
