Reopening Our Schools

The East Greenbush CSD has formed a School Opening Task Force to develop plans to help safely reopen schools in the fall. As we develop reopening plans for submission to the state, our priorities will be the health and safety of all students and staff and the academic and social emotional needs of our students.

Columbia High School graduation at HVCCThe start time for the Columbia High School graduation ceremony scheduled for Saturday, June 27 at the McDonough Sports Complex at HVCC has been changed from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m.

The change is being made so Columbia’s graduation ceremony is the first of the day at the venue. In past years, Columbia’s ceremony has followed other schools, which leaves a short amount of time to change seating and stage setup, perform audiovisual checks and for the preceding school’s graduates and guests to vacate the parking lots.

The earlier start time will also allow for cooler temperatures inside the venue and more time for graduates and their families to celebrate after the event.
