Educating Everyone Takes Everyone
Dear Parents and Caregivers – As many of you are aware, the number of positive COVID cases in the region is again going up which has led to the 7-day percent positive in Saratoga County to go back above 3% and our CDC classification for community transmission to move from “Low Risk” to “Moderate Risk”. While we are not changing our current plan at this time, we are watching the conditions carefully and are encouraging parents who have children in our Summer Success and Extended School Year programs to: - keep your child home if they are not feeling well; - have your child tested for COVID if they are showing symptoms and report any positive cases to our firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox; -continue to practice hand washing or, where soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer to sanitize with your child; and - have your child wear a mask while indoors during the program day. Please notify program staff if you will be doing this. Should the numbers of positive cases continue to increase and our county CDC classification rate change to “Substantial”, we will again be requiring all students to wear masks indoors while attending our programs. For our fall reopening plan, we will be posting our current status on the front page of our website at www.bscsd.org. We also anticipate hosting presentations on our draft plan and gathering additional feedback in the coming weeks. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your program administrator or at email@example.com. Thanks very much. Ken Slentz Superintendent of Schools Ballston Spa CSD www.bscsd.org
Have a safe and enjoyable summer!

As we work on the development of our plan for funding from the Federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund allocated by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPR-ESSER) as well as the plans for other federal, state, and local funding including next year’s District budget, we are seeking feedback from parents, faculty and staff, and other community members as to what initiatives should be considered as priorities.
