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.
