During this period of school closures, it is critical that students and their families stay home as much as possible. If you leave your home, it is essential to follow social distancing guidelines by avoiding crowds, canceling social gatherings, and maintaining a safe separation of at least 6 feet from others. Keeping your distance from others will not only help reduce the spread of COVID-19 but can also help protect your family members from getting sick. We know this is a difficult time and we want to make sure students can stay connected. While we know that many students will want to spend this time with friends it is important that you do not gather together but rather find other ways to connect such as social media, face-time, etc. This is a great time to clean out your closets, walk your dog, read a book, or go for a bike ride. You do not have to stay indoors. It is okay to go outside, however, regardless of the activities there should not be any large groups hanging out together. If a few students wanted to go outside and hang out together it should be with activities that still allow for social distancing. During this time social distancing is important to protect not only you but also your family, elders and others around you. Saratoga County Office of Public Health

Red Raider Community: The District is continually meeting to improve our methods of providing food service to our students. We have decided that we will produce AND DELIVER breakfast and lunch meals to all children in our community. Meals will be delivered on the regular bus runs each day. Meals will be prepackaged and left at your doorstep. NO one will need to physically accept the delivery. We will be adding a bus run for the students who walk to school. In addition, for tomorrow and every Monday during the cancelation of classes, packets of school work will be delivered to each home. Additionally, assignments will be posted on our district website by grade level for elementary students and by subject/teacher for middle and high school students. If you have youth in your household that are Pre-K or any up to the age of 18 that you would like meals for, PLEASE notify our Food Services Director so we send enough. If you choose NOT TO ACCEPT meal delivery, and OPT OUT, please contact Deb, The Food Service Director at 518-450-4085 or via email at email@example.com Beginning soon, we will implement new procedures for building access. Our nursing staff will be stationed at one point of entry to log all persons entering our buildings. At entry you will be logged in, your temperature will be taken by Non Contact Forehead Infrared Thermometer. Any person presenting a temperature will not be allowed to enter the building. We will begin logging names immediately, the thermometers should arrive by COB Tuesday. Reminder to all students and families - the work is practice and enrichment. Students will have an opportunity to make up missed assignments or previous assessments where they did not perform well. PLEASE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY!!! My best, Bruce #OneMechanicville
