A Park Slope school says a staff member has tested positive for COVID-19 as students gear up to start the new school year, but the building continues to remain open. 
In a letter, The Park Slope Education Complex at Middle School 88 informed staff that a staff member working on site has tested positive for the coronavirus. 
School officials added that they are handling the situation and are following protocols developed by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. 
Officials say the building will remain open but have given staff the option to work remotely. 
School officials say the NYC Test & Trace Corps will begin an investigation and that any close contacts within the school building will be instructed to quarantine for 14 days.
