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.

While schools are temporarily closed, we will be sharing news stories from our distance learning model.

Columbia High School students are expressing their thoughts and feelings through their Photography class during the extended school closing. The students are taking photos and submitting them daily with a short statement related to the images.

The project, which is led by Art Teacher Andrea Neiman and Librarian Kate Banks, challenges the students to use good photographic composition, unusual camera angles, leading lines and cropping.

“I’m inspired by their honesty, humor and the ways in which they are keeping themselves occupied,” said Ms. Neiman. “I am so impressed by their creativity and resilience!”
