Reopening Our Schools

The East Greenbush Central School District has developed Reopening Plans that include a hybrid model and a full remote option for families. These plans prioritize the health and safety of all students and staff and the academic and social emotional needs of our students while complying with NYS Education Department and Department of Health guidelines.

School Closing and Delay Information

The East Greenbush Central School District may close schools or delay starting times due to weather-related conditions or other emergencies. The District’s primary goal is to keep students and staff safe.

In the event of severe weather, the District may delay the opening of school or close schools altogether using a variety of resources, including:

  • Road condition reports
  • The time snow starts and the amount of snow
  • Weather predictions for the morning and afternoon hours
  • Building conditions (power and heat)
  • Condition of school buses
  • Weather warnings from National Weather Service
  • Consultation with local towns and police agencies

The District communicates delays and closings through a variety of channels.

Early dismissals and emergencies during the school day will also be communicated through email and phone messages.
