Early Release Day 2019

An early dismissal drill has been scheduled for the Ballston Spa Central School District on Friday, November 8, 2019. The school district will conduct a state-mandated early release drill as part of an Emergency Management Plan to prepare for conditions such as severe weather or unexpected building problems (e.g. loss of power or heat) that would require the district to release students early. Under real emergency conditions, parents would be notified through radio and television stations, social media and the district’s SchoolMessenger notification system (more info online at

As a result of this drill, students will be released from school fifteen (15) minutes earlier than normal on November 8, 2019. However, please be aware that due to the fact that an emergency dismissal drill will be conducted in the district, children may arrive home earlier or later than normal.

The school early dismissal drill is part of ongoing efforts to ensure a safe and secure school environment. In addition, the schools in Ballston Spa will be closed in observance of Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, 2019.
