Educating Everyone Takes Everyone
This Friday, September 24, 2021, Ballston Spa schools are having a Staff Development Day with a half day of classes for students in the morning. Elementary students will have normal arrival time by bus and car drop-off (9:00 am). Half day dismissal schedule will be as follows: Bus Dismissal Students will load buses at 11:45 am with bus departure from school at 12 pm. Car Pick-up Will occur between 11:45 am - 12 pm in the normal locations.
The elementary school day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:25 p.m. Students may begin entering the building at 9:00 am. Please send a note to school if you will be picking your child up early, or if they normally ride school transportation but you will be picking them up at dismissal. You will be asked to present identification when picking up your child.
The breakfast and lunch program will begin on Wednesday, September 8th.
Breakfast and lunch are free to all students for the 2021-2022 school year. However, we do ask that potentially eligible families fill out the free and reduced lunch forms in the event that the policy or program changes and to ensure our ability to secure funding to support our students and families. Information from these forms is kept confidential.
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.
