Jan. 25: COVID-19 Information

January 25, 2021

Dear SGF Community,

The district has learned that four individuals associated with our district tested positive for COVID-19.

  • One member of the South Glens Falls HS community. (No contact tracing was required.)  
  • One member of the OWWMS community. (No contact tracing was required.) 
  • One member of the Tanglewood community. (No contact tracing was required.)
  • One member of the Ballard Elementary School community who was last in the building on Friday, Jan. 22. 

The district worked with Saratoga County Public Health Services on contact tracing for the only individual (a member of the Ballard community) that has been in the building. All individuals who are required to quarantine have been notified.

South Glens Falls High School will resume in-person classes tomorrow, Tuesday, Jan. 26. All other buildings are open at this time.

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. 

As a reminder, our daily Pinpoint screener was updated last week, and families are asked to keep all children home (regardless of whether they are showing symptoms) if any other member of the household is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or awaiting a test result. Please continue to complete the Pinpoint screening app daily to ensure you or your family should be coming to school.

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