The East Greenbush Central School District’s quarantine protocols for school buses has been updated as part of a pilot program between Rensselaer County and school districts within the county. Effective today, November 29, only unvaccinated students sitting in the same seat as a student who tests positive for COVID-19 will be quarantined as a precaution. All other students on the bus will not be considered close contacts and can continue attending school.
The district will monitor the implementation of this pilot and track students who would have otherwise been subject to quarantine under the previous protocols.
Students who were quarantined prior to November 29 must remain in quarantine until their scheduled end date.
Please see the attached letter outlining revised quarantined protocols.
Reminder: In the event someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, please contact your school nurse and inform them of the positive case.
