Reopening Information and Updates – Review our plan!

As we work toward the reopening of Menands School, this page will contain the most recent important updates and information for our school community. We will continue to update this page and contact our families as we learn more.

We know that our students, families, faculty, and staff are wondering what September will look like and have many questions.

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.
