Educating Everyone Takes Everyone
The Ballston Spa Central School District is excited to welcome the Class of 2034! To prepare for Kindergarten student registration this spring, a Kindergarten Parent Orientation night will be held virtually on March 10, 2021 from 6:30-7:30pm. For everyone’s health and safety, this year’s orientation will be held utilizing a video conference meeting format. Registered students/parents will receive additional information about the meeting including the links to the presentation before March 10, 2021. Anyone with an incoming Kindergarten student who has not already contacted us is asked to call the Registration Office at (518) 602-0256. Also, please feel free to share this email with anyone who may have an incoming Kindergarten student. Thank you!
