Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Thursday that all public schools in New York State will remain closed through at least May 15 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This means, absent an additional extension of the school closing period by the Governor, students and staff would return to school on May 18.
The East Greenbush Central School District will continue its online learning program, free meal service and childcare for essential workers through May 15.
Senior Prom Postponed
Because of the extended school closing, the district has decided to postpone Senior Prom so that families can avoid incurring unnecessary expenses at this time. School administrators are taking a proactive approach and exploring alternatives to this event as well as other popular spring events, should schools remain closed.
Please know that we are sensitive to the importance of these student events and we will do everything possible to have them continue in some form. All options will be explored including staff, student and parent ideas.
Kindergarten Screenings Postponed
All Kindergarten Screenings, which were scheduled at the elementary schools during the first two weeks of May, have been postponed until further notice.
Free Grab n Go meals for our families in need will continue to be offered daily through this school closing. Donald P. Sutherland and Red Mill Elementary Schools have been designated as the two daily pickup sites.
Meal Pick Up Times:
- Donald P. Sutherland, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
- Red Mill, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
