    Meals for students over the mid-winter recess: 

    In an effort to ensure all of our students have food for the holiday break (Feb 15-19) the district will be offering meals for pickup over the mid-winter recess. Meals are available to any Ballston Spa student free of charge. Parents/Caregivers just need to provide the students name and school at pickup (no registration required). Adults are allowed to pick up for multiple students. The district will provide three breakfast meals and three lunch meals on both February 16, 2021 and February 18, 2021 during the mid-winter recess.  The pickup location is at the Gordon Creek Elementary School between 10:00–11:00am. Please contact Bob Wood, Food Service Manager at rwood@bscsd.org or 518-884-7290 ext. 3312 for additional information.


    Reminders for Successful Remote Learning

    Please consider taking time to review the second quarter report card with your student and also the course attendance which is newly included on the report card. Now is the time to reflect and set goals for students to finish the school year strong.

    1. Be on time,  be present and engaged, AND STAY in class - the entire class

      1. Sitting up
      2. Dressed Appropriately
    3. Please let teachers teach
