4-H Re-Opening


    A Message regarding Mandatory 4-H Reopening Training

    Saratoga County 4-H puts the health and well-being of our members, volunteers and their families at the forefront of everything we do. As we begin to re-open the 4-H program in Saratoga County, we are following a very strict and thoughtful Re-Opening Safety Plan. Members, Volunteers and Families are expected to know and follow the expectations laid out in our re-opening safety plan. For this reason, we are requiring a few things as we resume programming.

    • 1.All 4-H Volunteers and parents who attend meetings must have attended one of our virtual re-opening meetings, or must watch the recorded meeting at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=233CiPfIZ2M&feature=youtu.be or below
    • Once they have watched the video, they must email Leland Bunting at glb76@cornell.edu to ensure that their participation has been logged.
    • 2.All 4-H volunteers and parents who attend meetings must print, sign and return the 4-H Reopening Safety Plan”.
    • 3.All volunteers, members and parents who attend meetings must sign the Assumption of Risk Waiver before attending any 4-H club meetings or programs.
    • 4.All volunteers, members, and parents who attend meetings must complete a health screening questionnaire immediately before attending a meeting.

    *Forms are in a fillable format and electronic signatures will be accepted. All forms may be scanned and emailed to Kim Wilbur at kmw82@cornell.edu, mailed to the 4-H Office at 50 W. High St., Ballston Spa, NY 12020, or dropped off at our office front desk.

    All health and safety guidelines, practices and protocols are outlined in our Reopening Safety Plan. It is incredibly important that all of these guidelines and practices are followed in order to keep our community safe and our program open. Anyone who does not follow our re-opening plan will not be allowed to participate in 4-H meetings or programs.

    We are extremely excited to again be offering 4-H programming in Saratoga County, and we appreciate the hard work of our staff, volunteers and membership as we make this happen!
