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.

SchoolMessenger graphicEast Greenbush Central School District will test its notification system SchoolMessenger on Wednesday, September 26 at approximately 6:00 p.m.

All parents and emergency contacts for students should receive a text message and automated phone call at that time. Additionally, parents will receive an email. School staff who have signed up for the service will receive an email, text and phone call if they’ve provided that information.

SchoolMessenger is used to send out alerts about emergencies, weather-related closings or delays, and school news.

If you do not receive a message on Wednesday evening, please call your school’s main office or email Public Information Specialist Mark Adam at adamma@egcsd.org. Please note, one of the main reasons for not receiving the text message is because you must first opt in. You can do that by following these steps:

  1. Compose a new text message to the number 67587
  2. Type “Yes” in the message
  3. Hit send
