BALLSTON SPA - The Ballston Spa School District started off the year remotely. However, students headed back for a hybrid model of learning on Monday.

There was excitement mixed with some anxiety as students headed back.


Superintendent Ken Slentz says it started off rough, but they quickly got the hang of their online system.

Students in grades K-5 will be in-person Monday through Thursday.

Middle schoolers will go two days in-person, two days at home depending on your last name.

High schoolers grade 9 through 10 go one week, then the next week grades 11 through 12 go in.

All students will be remote on Fridays to allow for things like parent and student outreach, teacher planning, and more cleaning.

Learn more about some of the new procedures the district has in place this year, and some of the concerns they have by watching the video of Emily DeVito's story.
