Ballston Spa schools employee involved in a training tests positive for COVID-19, district says


BALLSTON SPA – A Ballston Spa Central School District employee involved in training this week has tested positive for COVID-19, the district said on its website Wednesday.

 The district was notified of the test results Wednesday by the Saratoga County Department of Health, Superintendent Ken Slentz wrote in a letter to parents.

The letter did not identify the employee’s position, but indicated that the employee “was involved in a training on campus this week.”

The positive test started the district’s tracing protocol to determine who was in contact or in proximity to the employee. The list generated will be sent to the county, Slentz wrote.

The positive test led to Wednesday’s community forum on the district’s reopening plan to be postponed. The district’s Thursday evening presentation remained scheduled for 6 p.m.

Ballston Spa schools announced last week that they would start the year all-remote as it ironed out the details to welcome students back. In-person instruction is not expected to start until Oct. 5.
