Due to Hurricane Sandy, City Schools Will be Closed to Students Until Monday, November 5

"Because of the impact of Hurricane Sandy, all New York City public schools will be closed to students until Monday, November 5. All after-school activities and Public Schools Athletic League events will also be cancelled until next week. Our administrative offices will continue to remain open.

“Teachers and other school-based administrative staff should report to their sites on Friday, November 2, and we will provide more information to our staff, including those who may be required to report to a site other than their school. Thank you to those who continue to report to shelter sites and to those who are volunteering to assist during this time.”
