October 15: weekly update

A message from Superintendent Wiles:

Dear Guilderland CSD Families,

I hope you have been able to enjoy the lovely fall weather we’ve been having. There are just a few items to update you on this week.

COVID-19 testing to begin soon

The health and safety of our students, staff and their families is a top priority of the Guilderland Central School District and we remain committed to doing our part to minimize the potential impact of COVID-19. To that end, we are partnering with Albany County Department of Health and Quadrant Biosciences to develop a testing program. This free testing program will be available to all students on a voluntary basis, regardless of vaccination status, and is another measure we are taking to safely continue to provide in-person instruction for our students. More details are to come on this program.
