Elmont Memorial High School closed Dec. 16 and 17


Elmont Memorial High School will be closed on Dec. 16 and 17, after a staff member tested positive for Covid-19, Sewanhaka Superintendent James Grossane announced on Dec. 15.

All students and staff will work remotely during this closure, he said, and the buildings will be deep cleaned and disinfected on Dec. 17. The Nassau County Department of Health will conduct contact tracing, meanwhile, and inform anyone who needs to quarantine. Once that is complete, Grossane said, he can update the public on whether the school must be closed longer.
