Current COVID-19 cases in BSCSD
To provide parents and caregivers with up-to-date information on the current number of positive cases within the District, the chart below will be updated daily. Any cases that will have an operational impact (closure of a building) will be communicated to parents directly from the Superintendent.

If your BSCSD child tests positive for COVID-19, please notify us as soon as possible at COVIDreport@bscsd.org.
The NYS DOH COVID-19 Report Card shows the numbers for all schools in the state. It can be found at https://schoolcovidreportcard.health.ny.gov/#/home. To keep parents, students, teachers & staff, and the public fully informed, New York State’s COVID Report Card dashboard reports two distinct data sets: Lab Reported COVID Data for the School District and School District Reported COVID Data.
Please note that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict the district from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information of anyone who has tested positive. Anyone in the district who is impacted will be contacted by Saratoga County Public Health Services (SCPHS).
Parents/caregivers, students, and staff members should continue to:
- Review the options for vaccination of students and informational resources on our Coping with COVID page.
- Review the testing and tracing algorithm utilized by the Saratoga County Public Health Services Office Keep symptomatic children home.
- Wear a mask at all times while in the school buildings except when eating or drinking, and consider wearing a mask when in crowded public spaces.
- Wash hands frequently.
- Maintain proper distancing when in public settings.
Taken together, these actions will help us to minimize our positive cases and quarantines and continue to meet our reopening goal which is to have in-person learning for all students. Our thanks for your continued support and partnership as we move through each day and address each of the many challenges as they arise. Maintaining a sense of calm and having fact-based discussions will help each of us to be able to devote our limited energies to keeping our students, our families, and ourselves safe, healthy, and well.
