Dec. 28: COVID-19 Notification

December 28, 2020

Dear SGF Community,

The district learned this past week that three individuals associated with our district are positive for COVID-19. 

  • An individual in the SGF High School community
  • An individual in the Oliver W. Winch Middle community
  • An individual in the Ballard Elementary community

Given the timing of these cases, no contact tracing was required and no one in the district is required to quarantine. The district worked in collaboration with Saratoga County Public Health Services to determine this.

Please note that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.

We would encourage our community to work together to practice the safety measures known to stop the spread of COVID-19, including social distancing, wearing a mask, washing your hands and avoiding group gatherings with people outside of your household.

If your child has been placed into quarantine or tests positive for COVID-19, please call the district at 518-824-2219, email at, or fill out this form. Someone will reach out to you. 

Please contact me with any questions.

Kristine Orr
Superintendent of Schools
