Green Chimneys School Operating Plan & Protocol

Green Chimneys’ Administration continuously reviews and updates all procedures to align with New York State Education Guidance for In-Person Instruction at Pre-K to Grade 12 Schools. These documents serve to provide our school and greater campus community, including employees, contractors, students, and parents/legal guardians of students with practices to help protect against the spread of COVID-19.


We believe that in-person instruction is the best option for learning and receiving related support services, as well as addressing the individual needs and challenges of families and youth.

  • For both our day and residential students, we believe that in order maximize the benefits from our enriched environment and array of services, supports, academics and other programming, in-person learning is vital.
  • For our residential students, we have developed practices and protocols to maximize the health, safety and well-being of the children who stay in our dormitories so that they may continue to benefit from our therapeutic milieu.
