As of September 2021, the following safety measures are in place for on-site school programs:

Group Logistics:

  • Maximum of 35 participants including at least one adult participant, per group. One Green-Wood educator will be assigned to guide each group.
  • Programs take place completely outdoors. Trolley programs are currently suspended.


  • Groups are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early to use the restroom and check in.
  • Participants must wash/sanitize hands at the start of every program. Hand sanitizer will be provided.
  • On the morning of the programs, group leaders must fill out and turn in the Green-Wood health check form, which we will provide.
  • Participants will receive learning materials in a tote bag, contactless, at the start of the program to self-distribute.

During the Program:

  • Participants must wear face masks at all times.
  • Green-Wood educators will also be masked at all times.
  • Participants must socially distance whenever possible.
  • All programs are walking programs. No vehicles are used. Please also note that no outdoor area of the Cemetery is ADA compliant, however we will do our best to create wheelchair-friendly program routes whenever possible.

School programs are 60, 75, or 90-minutes long and are led by experienced Green-Wood educators. All guided programs take place within a short distance of a Green-Wood entrance and restrooms. Programs can be scheduled Monday through Friday at 10:00am, 11:30am or 1:00pm. We can accommodate up to two groups per time slot. Participants are welcome to explore our grounds, self-guided, before and/or after their program during visiting hours.

All programs align to local, state, and national curriculum standards, and can be modified for different grade levels and learning needs. See a sample of our programs standards here. Age recommendations and program duration are listed with each program. When you book, please make sure to tell us about the units of study with which you would like your Green-Wood program to align.
