Please note that the first day of school for Cohoes students in grades 1-12 has been changed to Wednesday, September 9. It was originally scheduled for Tuesday, September 8, but that day will now be utilized as a Superintendent Conference Day to allow our staff additional time to prepare for the reopening of our schools. The first day of school for pre-K and kindergarten is Monday, September 14, as originally scheduled.
