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.

On June 13, 2019, the New York State Legislature amended the State’s laws governing immunizations for school children. Effective immediately, a school is no longer permitted to exempt students from immunization requirements for students on the basis of religion.

If a student lacks the required immunizations and is not medically exempt from immunization, the new law requires that the student be excluded from school until the required immunizations are initiated. If a parent or person in parental relation can demonstrate that his or her child has received at least the first dose in each required immunization series, then the child may attend school during the immunization process. The Center for Disease Control’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices created the Recommended Immunization Schedules by which schools are to evaluate whether a student has age appropriate appointments scheduled. The schedule is located online at

The East Greenbush Central School District has already sent letters to families who are impacted by this new state legislation. If you have any questions about immunization requirements, please contact our Health Services Department at 518-207-2070.
