Feb. 23: COVID-19 Information

February 23, 2021

Over the past week while schools were closed, the South Glens Falls CSD learned about two individuals in our school community who tested positive for COVID-19. This includes the following:

  • One member of Ballard Elementary School community.
  • One district-wide staff member. Given the time that this individual was last in the district, no contact tracing was required.

In all cases, the district worked closely with Saratoga County Public Health Services to perform contact tracing. Any individual who was required to quarantine was contacted directly by the district.

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.

The district will continue to update its COVID-19 Information Page when cases are reported and send a weekly digest with information.

Athletics Testing

Yesterday, the district began testing student athletes and coaches. Fifty percent of this group was tested on Monday and the other half will be tested on Thursday. On the first day of testing, the district reported 0 positive results. This weekly testing will continue throughout the winter season.
