Dear BSCSD Families:
After another very busy summer in which we have spent a great deal of time learning about the protocols and requirements that we need to have in place for the safe reopening of school, we are excited to welcome you and your children to another school year at Ballston Spa Central. In addition to welcoming all of you back, we are also welcoming a number of new families, new employees, new learning opportunities for students and staff, and new support structures for our students. Taken together, we will continue to work diligently to ensure that every Ballston Spa student graduates with a meaningful diploma which in turn allows them a variety of fulfilling pathways to pursue after they leave us. Make no mistake though – this will require a great deal of focused work, strong partnerships, a willingness to try different things than we have done in the past, and consistent communications.
To that end, our website serves as but one means of communication, as does our quarterly newsletter (The Reader), our social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram), our periodic Updates from the District Office, our community forums on key issues and opportunities, and our periodic emergency/critical incident emails and phone calls. To be sure that you receive all such notices from us, I encourage you to verify your contact information with your child’s school in order to receive electronic messages via our SchoolMessenger notification system from the district or schools throughout the year, as well as emergency and school closing information.
We truly look forward to the 2021-2022 school year and strengthening our partnerships with all of you in service of better outcomes for our kids. Please feel free to contact me at 884-7195 ext. 1310 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you toward another productive and successful school year.
