Reopening planning and information

Given that information related to the COVID-19 pandemic is a fluid situation, we will use this web page to share updates with families as we work through the beginning of the school year.

Time-sensitive updates will also be shared through the district’s mass notification system (Blackboard Connect).

Keep contact information up-to-date

Please make sure that the contact information that you have provided to your child(ren)’s school is still current. If you need to make changes to your contact information, please notify your child(ren)’s school directly.

Reopening Plan

The South Colonie Central School District reopening plan is now available to and will be updated throughout the school year, as necessary, to respond to local circumstances. 

Please note that while this plan is required to be submitted to the state, a final determination on school opening in New York will be made by the Governor in the first week of August. Additionally, items in this plan are subject to change following the release of new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), New York State Education Department (NYSED), or other determinations that may be made by the Governor.

Chronic Medical Condition Documentation Form

We recognize that some  students and staff suffer from chronic medical conditions such as seasonal allergies, migraines, and other medical conditions that may mimic symptoms of COVID-19.

In order to avoid potential dismissals and frequent visits to the doctors for COVID testing, the District Medical Director Dr. Warren Silverman has developed a Chronic Medical Condition Documentation form to be completed by a physician. (*Please note all orders must be certified by an M.D. or D.O.)

A copy of the form is available here.
