Kindergarten Returns Full Time Starting March 1

The Board of Education has approved two changes to the instructional model: 1) Kindergarten students will resume five days a week of in-person learning starting on Monday, March 1. The Full Remote Program is still available to families. 2) Live Virtual Wednesdays will be eliminated for students in grades 1-5 starting March 10 to provide one additional in-person school day every other week. March 10 will be an in-person school day for B Day students and A Day students will have a remote day. The schedule will alternate going forward.

The East Greenbush elementary school principals put their dessert skills to the test Wednesday evening at 16 Handles, helping to raise more than $700 for their schools.

They each made their own frozen yogurt from different soft serve flavors and then added toppings such as M&Ms, graham cracker, strawberry shortcake and whipped cream. The cups of frozen yogurt were taste-tested by five judges who scored them on taste, appearance and creativity.

DPS Principal Jack Alvey won first place with his creation called “The Eagle’s Nest,” and his school was awarded $200 by 16 Handles. Green Meadow Principal Daniel Garab and Genet Principal Ana Yeomans tied for second, and each received $75 for their schools. Bell Top Principal Marty Mahar and Red Mill Principal John Caporta tied for third, and their schools each received $50.

In addition to the award prizes, a portion of all the sales from the evening were donated evenly among the schools. Thank you to 16 Handles for hosting this fundraiser and for our school community for supporting it.
