Reopening/COVID-19 Community Resources

The South Glens Falls CSD is committed to ensuring that all of its students and families are taught and re-taught new expectations related to all public health policies and protocols. As part of this continuous training, the district will assess the best approach to communicating the information for each students’ age group and will provide frequent opportunities for students to review these policies and protocols. This targeted education will help ensure that all students and their families know what is expected of them as they successfully return to the school setting. Find information below on several key topics.

Mental Health
