Jan 4: COVID-19 Notification

January 4, 2021

Dear SGF Community,

Since yesterday’s update, the district learned that one individual associated with our district tested positive for COVID-19, a member of the Ballard Elementary School community.

Given the timing, 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.

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.
