Good Afternoon,

This is Dr. Rabey from Depew Schools,

Earlier today, the District received additional information from the Erie County Department of Health of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the District.  The individuals who tested positive were in the Depew Middle School.  Please be aware that the District cannot release the names or any other personally identifiable information regarding these individuals.

You will be directly contacted by a local public health department representative in the event that you and/or your child had, or may have had, close contact with the individuals who tested positive.  You and your child are expected to comply with all instructions given if contacted by the health department, including any requirement to quarantine for a designated period of time.  The District will work collaboratively with the public health representative through the contact tracing process to identify and inform anyone who has had close contact with the individual who tested positive.

For more information, a notification letter has been posted to the District’s Website at

Thank you.
