COVID-19 Updates and Information

Grades 3-5 will return for full time in-person learning starting Monday, April 26, which will fully reopen all elementary schools. The K-12 Full Remote program will still be available to families who choose that option. Due to state regulations, Columbia and Goff will remain in the Hybrid Model at this time. The East Greenbush CSD will continue to evaluate options for Columbia and Goff students to receive increased in-person learning at 6 feet social distancing where possible.

East Greenbush Central School District continued its commitment to school safety last week when it hosted law enforcement agencies serving the district at its regular Administrative Staff Meeting.

All school principals and other district level administrators participated in the meeting to collaborate with law enforcement representatives. The meeting reinforced and assessed school safety procedures and protocols, and had participants review and discuss emergency scenarios.

The meeting, which Mr. Simons plans to continue hosting in the future, is one of many ways the district works with law enforcement to maintain a safe school environment.

  • Columbia High School has a School Resource Officer from the East Greenbush Police Department in the building every school day
  • A School Resource Officer will also be assigned to Goff Middle School later this year
  • Police visit schools routinely
  • Police assist schools with safety drills
  • Police officers have attended the district’s Safety Committee meetings

“The opportunity to share information with the police and problem-solve with our local law enforcement agencies helps all of our schools keep students and staff safe in the event of a school emergency,” Mr. Simons said. “Regular meetings with law enforcement ensure a coordinated response in the event of an emergency and the effective implementation of our safety plans should a critical incident occur.”

Thank you to the following agencies for attending this meeting:

  • East Greenbush Police Department
  • New York State Police
  • North Greenbush Police Department
  • Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office
  • Schodack Police Department
