The East Greenbush Central School District will not be making any changes to the 2020-21 Instructional Calendar at this time. District administrators have evaluated the calendar and the number of in-person school days for A Group students and B Group students and found only a 1.5 day difference among the K-5 groups, a .5 day difference for grades 6-8 and a 1.0 day difference for grades 9-12.

The month by month breakdown regarding in-person instructional days based on the original school calendar is as follows:
