Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake CSD Retirees


**Did You know?**

May 4, 2020

The District’s Annual Health Insurance Open Enrollment period will begin this week and will be conducted remotely to ensure that everyone that needs to make changes is able to do so in accordance with the current executive orders from Governor Cuomo. Open enrollment will be held from May 7, 2020 to May 29, 2020. During this time all eligible retirees and spouses are able to make changes to their prior health and dental plans determinations.

March 12

This afternoon, Governor Cuomo put significant restrictions on large group gatherings. Although there are no confirmed cases of the virus at BH-BL, we feel it is imperative to follow his lead and implement proactive steps that could help us keep our schools open and continue to educate our students.

Therefore, in an effort to reduce the instances of community contact at our schools, and protect students and staff, we have suspended all travel (i.e., field trips and conferences), community use of our facilities, outside visitors to our campus (i.e., college visits, etc.) and cancelled all extracurricular activities and large group events from March 13 to April 20. This means the High School play, Thoroughly Modern Millie, will be performed this evening (Thursday, March 12) only. The other two shows are cancelled.

This also includes continuing education classes, community swim, PTA meetings, movie nights, etc. (A list of many of the affected events is below.) Elementary play practices and after-school clubs are cancelled throughout this period. However, this does not impact the Y-Care program at any of our schools. Middle and high school clubs, activities, and extra help sessions that occur during the after-school activity period will still take place. We will continue to offer our late bus run for high school and middle school students.
