Reopening Information and Updates – Review our plan!

Menands students returned to school (in-person and virtual) on Monday, September 14. This page will continue to have the most recent important updates and information for our school community.

The plan outlined here is for the reopening of schools in the Menands Union Free School District for the 2020-21 school year, following the building closure related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our driving principles in creating this plan were two-fold:

  • Follow all medical and scientific guidelines to do everything possible to ensure the safety of our community.
  • Provide the highest quality educational experience possible for all of our students K-8.
