    Green Island does not provide transportation for students. However, some of our students do receive transportation for off-site programs (i.e. BOCES). The District will work with the transportation departments of those entities to ensure that the health and safety of our students is not compromised.

    Social Emotional Well-being

    School Schedules

    Green Island UFSD will make every effort to maximize in-person instruction while decreasing density and congregation in school facilities and on school grounds.

    School Activities

    As interscholastic sports and extracurricular activities are an important aspect of student life and the school community, it is our priority to maintain as many offerings as we can.

    Attendance and Chronic Absenteeism

    The district will continuously monitor the progress of our students. Teachers will be required to keep daily attendance and engagement records for all students.

    Teaching & Learning

    The district is planning for in-person learning at the K-6 level and a hybrid model that combines in-person instruction and remote learning at the 7-12 level. Parents will have the choice to remain in the remote learning model.
