Important health information for B-P families, employees and visitors (March 16)

While classes are canceled at Broadalbin-Perth schools through March 31, individuals will still be in our school buildings to provide essential services to our families. However, it is important that all employees and visitors to the schools follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help reduce the risk of community spread of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

Anyone planning or scheduled to come to B-P schools should first ask themselves the following questions:

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, please do not come to the schools.

Note, a child has a fever when their temperature is at or above one of these levels:

  • 100.4 F (38 C) measured in the bottom (rectally)
  • 99.5 F (37.5 C) measured in the mouth (orally)
  • 99 F (37.2 C) measured under their arm (axillary)

An adult probably has a fever when their temperature is above 99-99.5 F (37.2-37.5 C), depending on what time of the day it is.

Students or parents who have medical questions while classes are canceled should contact Lori Nellis at or 518-954-2610.
