Obituary for Joshua David Glantz:

***A celebration of life for Josh is planned for the Spring.***

March 17, 1970-January 13, 2022. It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Joshua David Glantz, 51 in his home after a lifetime of battling health related issues. He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Sue; mother, Janet Glantz; father, David Glantz; mother- on-law, Dorothy Smith; father-in-law Jerold Hall; brother-in-law Steven Hall; sister-in-law Michelle Hall; and nephews Connor and Matthew Hall.

After graduating from Unatego High School, Joshua pursued a degree in history at Binghamton University. Upon completion of a masters degree in education at Binghamton, Joshua began his career at Eldred Central School District in September of 1994. Over his career Joshua helped kids develop a literary journal, win a Black Bear’s Film Festival award, and obtain Computer Repair certification. He successfully obtained multiple grants to help fund technology for ECSD, and then wired the school and introduced Smartboards to Sullivan county. Joshua spent several hours during lunch breaks and after school helping improve students’ writing. He also ran a Gaming Club, introducing students to the value of math, cooperation and sportsmanship with electronic, Euroboard Games, and Warhammer miniatures. As a kidney recipient, Joshua strove to educate students about the importance of living healthy and being persistent. Joshua and his family created The Gift of Life scholarship for students pursuing a career in medicine. He was awarded the first annual Can’t Hurt Steel award in 2016. While being a two-time recipient of the Sullivan County School Boards Association's Outstanding Educator Award in 2013 and again in 2019, the biggest reward for Joshua were the kind words of acknowledgement of post-graduate student success attributed to him. He stressed that we be kind, curious, and, above all, play a game and have fun with one another.

A celebration of Joshua’s life is planned in the Spring.

Dear Community,
I regret to inform you that Josh Glantz passed away this afternoon. As you likely know, Josh had been ill for some time. He fought a brave fight and we will all miss him very much. He touched the lives of so many and we are all better for having known him. I do not know about arrangements at this time but will share that information when possible.
We will have grief counselors available for students, staff and community tomorrow. If you feel that you need special support please let me know and I will arrange for that to occur.
Thank you.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It appears that the NYS Department of Health has changed the requirements for quarantine for exposure and for definite illness. I have attached the letter to school administrators from the Department of Health for your reference. The rule is now 5 days of quarantine following close contact or definite illness. We are following the change from the Dept. of Health. We agree with the Health Department that with proper mask wearing, people can return safely after 5 days

Last week we distributed Covid-19 test kits to any District parent who wanted them for their child/children. The distribution was a great success. We will have a limited supply of the kits at our next school board meeting on Thursday January 13th, at the high school at 6 pm for parents of Eldred students.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate this pandemic.


Sincerely yours,

John C. Morgano Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

DOH Letter January 10, 2022


January 4, 2022

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have received a limited supply of COVID test kits that we are offering to our parents and guardians for testing children who you suspect may have COVID. This test is a rapid test and you will have the results in 15 minutes. This test does not replace bringing your child to the doctor for a long term test.

Distribution of the test kits will be as follows; Kits will be dispensed at the high school on Thursday January 6, 2022 from 2:30 until 6:30 in the parking lot in front of the main entrance to the high school. If there is inclement weather, you may pick up the kits in the main lobby of the high school.

This time and location is for both the elementary school and the Junior/Senior High School. Kits will be dispensed according to how many children you have attending school at Eldred. Each kit has two tests in it so for example if you have two children in school at Eldred, you will be given one kit.

We have a very limited supply of tests so please understand that we are limiting the distribution to the number of children attending Eldred. This includes all students wherever placed.

Thank you for your continued support of our efforts to help serve your children.

Sincerely yours,

John C. Morgano Ed.D.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Eldred schools will be on virtual instruction tomorrow, Friday, December 17th. All buildings and offices will be closed and there will be no out of district transportation. This action is due to non-specific threats made to execute violence at schools across the state. While this is a low-level threat, I will not and cannot take any chances with the safety of your children. One day of virtual instruction is a small price to pay to ensure the safety of Eldred students.

I was part of a Zoom on-line meeting today with the County District Attorney, the sheriff’s office, the state police and local law enforcement representatives and while it was confirmed that this is a “low level” threat, as I said above, I cannot take chances with your child’s safety. Teachers will be conducting class virtually from their homes tomorrow. All students should be on-line at the usual start time for their class. Currently we plan on having schools open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I wanted to share some information with you regarding COVID in our area. 

During the week of November 24 to December 1 the following existed in Sullivan County.

There were 458 new positive COVID cases reported in the past week.

120 are confirmed as vaccinated (26%)

22% of all new cases were less than age 16.


Currently in the Eldred Junior/ senior high school there are 31 students and one staff member on quarantine and 8 positive students.


At the elementary there are 4 staff members who have tested positive and one on quarantine. Also at the elementary school we have 13 students who have tested positive and 43 in quarantine.


There are additional cases in our transportation department and we are in the process of gathering the scope of the infection.

Our school district is not immune from this increase in COVID cases. The new variant seems to impact younger people more than the first virus. Based on the spread of the virus last week it was evident that we needed to take action to prevent or reduce further infection. I can assure you that going virtual was not my first choice since it impacts some families very hard. 

We are planning to go back to in-person instruction on December 13. In the meantime we ask that you understand that this action was made with the safety and health of our students in mind. 


Sincerely yours,

John C. Morgano Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents and Guardians,

After much thought and in keeping with placing the safety of our students as our first priority, we have decided to go virtual beginning tomorrow Friday, December 3rd through Friday, December 10th and returning to in-person instruction on Monday, December 13.

We have seen a sharp increase in the number of positive COVID cases. In addition, we are seeing a County-wide increase in not only the number of cases following the Thanksgiving holiday but in the severity of the cases. I understand that this may pose some difficulty with childcare however the safety and health of our students must take priority.

Students will be bringing home their Chromebooks today if they haven’t already. We expect all students to be engaged in virtual learning during this crisis. STUDENTS MUST HAVE THEIR CAMERA ON IN ORDER TO BE MARKED IN ATTENDANCE.

Questions regarding instruction should be directed to your building principal. We will be transporting our BOCES students for special education and vocational education. We will also transport to other out of district programs.

I sincerely hope that this break from in-person instruction will allow us to return to a safe environment. Of course we will deep clean our buildings and busses during this time. I thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely yours,

John C. Morgano Ed.D.,

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you are likely aware, the Governor has mandated that all non-vaccinated employees be tested for COVID-19 each week. The mandate also requires schools to offer to parents, weekly testing for students who are not vaccinated.  In order for your child to receive weekly COVID-19 testing, you must go to the testing site of the company that we are using for testing and register your child. The arrangement for testing is between you and the testing company. The school district will then receive your request and consent from Affinity and we will test your child weekly until the mandate ends or until you withdraw consent. It is important for you to understand that if you desire this service, your child will be tested weekly. You may not have them test some weeks and not others.

If you have any questions, please contact me or your child’s principal. I have included the link below. If you wish to participate, go to the site and register, you will need to register by 5:00 p.m. Friday, November 8, 2021. Make sure that you select either Eldred Junior/Senior High School or Mackenzie Elementary school. After you complete the registration process, please contact your child's school nurse to inform the nurse that you have completed the registration. All testing occurs in the nurse’s office at the child’s school. We anticipate beginning student testing on November 16th. You will be notified of any positive result of the testing. You may visit the site to seek your child’s results. If it says “no result” then the *pool of all the tests was negative. If it says negative, then your child’s individual sample revealed a negative result. If it is positive, you will see that and you will likely have already received a call regarding the positive result.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and remember that this is strictly voluntary on your part and in no way will not taking part be an issue.

Pool = all the samples for the testing event are pooled together and the entire sample is analyzed. Only if the pooled sample is positive does Affinity analyze the individual results.

To opt into the program, please visit the following site by copying the link below

 (to search institution, please search by zip code of JSHS - 12732 or GR Mackenzie - 12737)


The registration process takes less than 5 minutes.

For a short video guide on “how to” complete the registration/consent, activate your child’s online account to view results: View Video Here.

John C. Morgano Ed.D.

Affinity COVID-19 Testing Questions and Answers

Eldred Logo

September 21, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I want to correct what I told you recently about COVID testing for your child by the school district.

In my recent communications to you, I indicated that your child’s name and personally identifiable information would remain within the school district. I am now informed that such is not the case. This differs from the information that I was originally given. It appears that your relationship between you as the parent and Affinity is outside the school's control. Should you elect to have us administer the test to your child and we send it off to Affinity, that is the end of the school’s involvement in the process.

Please remember that your participation in having your child tested by the school is strictly voluntary and is a personal decision.

We anticipate that we will begin to offer this service to parents beginning in about four weeks. Please understand that when the time comes that we can offer you this service, that you fully understand that should your child test positive, the results along with your child’s name and other information that you provide, will be sent to the health department. The health department will then address the results directly with you. I anticipate that the health department will also contact the school district for contact tracing should that be necessary.

I have always been open and honest with you and I wanted to correct what I told you earlier. Once again, when the time comes to offer this service that it is totally voluntary on your part. You may wish to visit the Affinity Empowering site for more information.

Thank you,

John Morgano Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents and Guardians,                                                         August 12, 2021

Covid-19 continues to be a factor in our schools and community. The CDC, the State Education Department, and the Health Department have made suggestions for dealing with Covid-19  in our schools but have left the responsibility and the final decisions to Superintendents and Boards of Education. I have reviewed the various recommendations and suggestions from the agencies identified above and we have decided the following.

  1. Masks will be required of anyone in our school buildings. Since vaccinated individuals can still spread the virus to others, they too are required to wear a mask anytime they are in the school buildings.
  2. We will continue to follow our practice of taking temperatures of everyone entering the school buildings.
  3. We will follow the CDC guidelines regarding social distancing of 3 feet whenever possible.
  4. We are NOT going to ask students or parents if they have taken the vaccine, had Covid-19 in the past, or other personal questions since we are acting in a proactive way with the precautions mentioned above.
  5. There will be no hybrid instruction. All students are expected in school every day. This is similar to what NYC, the states of Connecticut and New Jersey, and others have decided.
  6. We will continue the practice of spraying our busses every evening so that each day we will begin with clean and germ-free or germs minimized busses. We will also deep clean our classrooms every evening as we did last year.

We believe that our precautions offer a good deal of prevention and when there is a case, we can contact trace and follow the Health Department guidelines for responding to a case of covid-19 in our schools. Should you have any questions regarding this response to covid-19, please contact my office and we can discuss this response plan.

My first priority is the safety of our students. Sometimes what we must do in order to achieve that goal may be difficult and or not popular. After 46 years in education, I think I know how to keep students safe. They will always be my first priority. Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

John C. Morgano Ed.D.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We have been working on strategies to improve academic outcomes. Our goal is to be the best we can be for every child. As we seek to improve our academic program we will not lose sight of the needs of the individual child. If you should have any questions about our plan to grow academically, just ask your principal and they can delve into the details. We live in a very competitive world and our children deserve the best education that can be provided. This is why we are here. I hope that you will support our goals for growth because without your support our efforts will not succeed.

Now for some COVID information. It is our intent to require masks be worn by everyone in our schools. Since vaccinated individuals can still spread the virus, those individuals need to wear a mask as well. My number one priority is to protect our students. I want you to rest assured that your child/children are safe when they are here. It is also our intent to have in person learning for every child. The hybrid model whereby some students come to the school building while others work from home is not ideal and as have other states and NYC, we are going to be all in-person. If we need to use snow days and when we exhaust all of our days we may consider on-line for everyone rather than take time from the scheduled breaks. Our kids and their parents had a rough year last year and I do not underestimate the importance of breaks when families can get together and celebrate life.

My door is always open so if you would like to come in and discuss anything please feel free to do so. We have a great teaching faculty and staff and it is my pleasure to work with them for the benefit of your child/children.

Sincerely yours,

John C. Morgano Ed.D.

Sullivan County Public Health Services and Sullivan BOCES have hosted a School Community Forum on Wednesday, Nov. 4 to provide answers to commonly asked COVID-19 related question.

Public Health staff explained what to expect if you test positive for COVID-19  or if your or a family member is exposed to someone who has tested positive. They explained contact tracing; the difference between isolation and quarantine, and where you can get tested.

If you would like to view the meeting, please click the link below.


Sullivan County Public Health Services clarifies when to quarantine, or isolate as COVID-19 cases rise

Please visit:  https://sullivanny.us/Departments/Publichealth/Coronavirus   for up to date information.

When Should I Quarantine?

Health Department staff remind residents that quarantine is used to keep someone who has been exposed to the virus (and who might be contagious even without symptoms), from spreading it to others.

Quarantine is for people who been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 and requires staying at home for at least 14 days while monitoring symptoms. During this time period an individual could develop active infection and become contagious. The average incubation period is 5 to 7 days, but it could take up to the 14th day.

A “close contact” means that you were within six feet of a COVID-19 positive patient for more than 15 minutes, provided care to someone with COVID-19, had direct physical contact, shared utensils or cups, or were directly sneezed or coughed on by someone diagnosed with COVID-19.

If you become symptomatic and get tested you should be on quarantine until those results come back. That includes if you have had a rapid COVID-19 test and a PCR.  Individuals must wait for BOTH results to come back prior to resuming normal activities. A negative rapid test does not mean you are cleared, both tests must come back negative.

When Should I Isolate?

Isolation is for people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and requires people to stay in their homes for at least 10 days while monitoring symptoms.

“People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, and monitor their health," said Nancy McGraw, Public Health Director.  "Please note that if you get tested during quarantine, you will still need to complete the full period even with a negative COVID test result.”

As I have said many times in the past, the Eldred community is full of nice, kind kids with good parents.

We are not reminded of that fact often enough.

Our schools have a number of programs that stress the positive actions of our students. (Please see the list below).

I would like to take that a bit further. We are going to begin a couple of initiatives. Please find the button on our webpage where students, teachers, staff and parents can be "acknowledged" for doing something good for someone else and/or the community. It doesn't have to be something extraordinary - just an action that makes someone's day just a little easier. It can be anonymous or you can give your name.

We will be sharing this information with everyone at our monthly BOE meeting. (Those individuals identified as “AOK” will be acknowledged at a BOE meeting, of course, we will check with the person who was "made known on AOK" to be sure they want to be publicly acknowledged. Some people like to keep their good deeds quiet.)

We will call this button the  Acts of Kindness "AOK" button (please click).

In the same vein, we will have boxes at each school where this information can be dropped into the box.

We are all on this journey together. It's important we support each other. You may click on the icon below.

The Eldred Central School District takes emergency preparedness very seriously. We have a comprehensive safety plan that assists our staff and Emergency Responders to respond swiftly should an emergency occur. We provide ongoing crisis management training to school administrators and other key staff members throughout the school.

Emergency response plans are in place at the school. An Emergency Response Team oversees the plan, and team members have assigned roles and responsibilities should an emergency occur. The team meets regularly to review procedures and conduct annual training and drills so that students and staff are aware of the most effective and safe emergency response.

Bus Safety 

The safety of our students is vital.
Recently some drivers have illegally passed stopped school buses. This is not only illegal it is reckless. How could a person live with themselves after killing or severely injuring a child because they were in a rush?
I ask that you be extra careful when driving where there are school buses and children.
Thank you for your needed assistance.
