NISKAYUNA - Niskayuna's Glencliff Elementary School is closed Wednesday due to illnesses, including the flu, causing significant absences, the district said.
The school, located in Rexford, was closed on the recommendation of the Saratoga County Public Health Department, the district said.
"We recognize that this is an inconvenience, but our primary concern is the health and wellness of all students and staff," the district wrote.
"Closing the school provides a day to help stop the spread of illness and for custodial staff to do extra cleaning of the school to eliminate germs," the district continued.

The district plans to reopen Glencliff Thursday and other district schools remained open Wednesday.
The move comes after the district closed Birchwood Elementary for a day for similar reasons two weeks ago.
