COVID-19 Notifications

FFCSD Families,

In order to streamline our communication efforts and ensure families and individuals impacted directly by cases affiliated with our school community receive and read important updates, we are making the following changes to the way we communicate about positive COVID-19 cases.

Beginning September 8, 2021 COVID updates/messages reporting any daily confirmed cases including positives that are discovered through testing will be posted to this webpage daily by 5:00 p.m. (Monday-Friday while school is in session). Positive COVID-19 notifications will be removed after ten days.

*Please note if there is no community message on the district website posted for a particular school day then the district did not receive confirmation from Montgomery County Public Health Department (MCPHD) of any positive cases for that day.

***Please note that all positive COVID-19 notifications will not be posted until test results are official.***

Please add the following phone number (518) 853-3531 to your contacts. It is the number for Montgomery County Public Health Department and may come up as spam on some phones.
