  • 3rd Graders Learn About Rockets

    Rockets Away! Gordon Creek 3rd Graders recently participated in a NASA Rocket Engineering virtual field trip hosted by Saratoga County 4-H. After watching the NASA launch of the Atlas V Rocket, students participated in the hands-on creation of paper rockets. In the final launch of their rockets, students competed in a competition between all four classes. Thank you to the Gordon Creek PTA for making this event possible.

    Pick-up and Drop-off at WR Complex

     

    The last week of school will be very busy at the Wood Road Complex with end-of-year activities taking place outside.  Please adhere to times for pick-up and drop- off to avoid excess traffic while students are outside.  Please don’t arrive more than a few minutes early for pick up to keep our students clear of vehicle traffic.

    FREE Meals for All Ballston Spa Students

    Our food service continues to prepare FREE meals for all students in the district - both in-school students and remote learners. Families of remote learners may pick up meals at the front entrance to the Gordon Creek Elementary School (on Rt 67 just west of the  village) between 1:15 – 2:15pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.

     

     

    Staying Vigilant Means Staying Open!

     

    1. Masks Matter! Please be sure to remind your child(ren) that masks are to be worn at all times when inside the building during the day with the exception of when eating and during teacher announced mask breaks.  This means keeping the mouth and the nose covered. Masks are not required outside. Masks are required on buses.
    1. Avoid the Groups! Please be sure to keep yourselves and your children away from large groups where masks are not being worn by all and social distancing is not being practiced. 
    1. Keeping Symptomatic Children Home! When your child has the following symptoms, they are not to attend school:
    • Has a temperature of 100.0 or greater
    • Feels feverish or has chills
    • Has a persistent cough
    • Is experiencing loss of taste or smell
    • Is fatigued/has a feeling of tiredness
    • Has a sore throat
    • Experiences shortness of breath or has trouble breathing
    • Is nauseous or is vomiting
    • Has diarrhea
    • Experiences muscle pain or body aches
    • Has a headache
    • Has nasal congestion/runny nose

    The NYS Department of Health requires that:

    1. Your child may not attend school if they have any of the above symptoms and they must be evaluated by their doctor. In these situations, please call the school’s attendance office or school nurse.
    2. If your child reports to the nurse’s office with any of the above symptoms, you will be called and must pick up your child.
    3. If your child was absent or if they were dismissed from school due to symptoms, they may only return to school with a clearance note from their doctor. If COVID-19 is suspected, your child will be tested and may return to school only with a negative test result and doctor clearance. If your child tests positive, they may return when your local health department clears them. Please do not send your child back to school with their clearance papers until you have spoken to their nurse.

    Your child’s doctor may provide your school nurse with a diagnosis of a chronic condition with unchanged symptoms, or a laboratory confirmed illness, such as influenza or strep throat. COVID testing may not be necessary under these circumstances, but that will be at the discretion of your provider.
