Health Services

Each school has a registered nurse who provides a variety of health services to students. They attend to sick and injured children, communicate with parents/guardians and perform state-mandated health screenings throughout the school year.

Return to School Requirements Following COVID-19 Symptoms

The East Greenbush Central School District has shared updated state requirements for when students can return to school after showing COVID-19 symptoms. Families will no longer need to submit a doctor’s note AND a negative COVID test result any time a student shows symptoms of COVID-19. The new process requires the student to be examined by their health care provider, who has the option of ordering a COVID test or giving a different diagnosis (e.g., a chronic condition unrelated to COVID-19).

If the health care provider orders a COVID test, the student can return to school only with a doctor’s note and the negative test results. If a COVID test is not ordered, the student can return to school with a doctor’s note stating the alternate diagnosis.

COVID-19 Coordinator

Families with questions about COVID-19, testing or return to school procedures can contact the COVID-19 Coordinator.
