Back to School in Philipstown

Students returned to the Garrison School on Sept. 2. Because the district has only about 200 students in grades kindergarten through eighth, it was one of the few in the Hudson Valley to have the space to allow for social distancing and be open five days a week. About 22 percent of parents and guardians opted to keep their children home for virtual-only learning.
