Due to inclement weather, New York City public school buildings are closed on Thursday, December 17. While buildings may be closed, school will be in session remotely for all students. Students are expected to log on and engage with their work from home as they do on other remote days.

Middle and high school students who are already learning remotely every day are expected to attend school remotely, regardless of the weather.

Please note that all DOE meal hubs will be closed.

Do not hesitate to contact your principal if you have any questions.

Information on Potential Inclement Weather Closures


We hope you are safe and well. As we head into winter, it’s likely we will have inclement weather that in an ordinary year would cause all schools to close for teaching and learning. This year, if a snowstorm or other weather demands that school buildings close, all schools will still conduct remote learning on that day. All students will be expected to log on and engage with their work from home as they do on other days when they learn remotely. Middle and high school students who are already learning remotely every day are expected to attend school remotely, regardless of the weather.

The ability to teach and learn remotely across the system allows us to continue learning despite inclement weather closures. You will still be notified as usual when we are closing buildings due to weather, but these will not be days off from learning.

Your school will stay in close communication with you regarding the upcoming snowstorm predicted to affect New York City beginning the evening of Wednesday, December 16. Please note that extra meals will be available on Tuesday, December 15 and Wednesday, December 16 to take home.

Please do not hesitate to contact your principal if you have any questions.

Reopening School Plans


Dear Families,

I hope you have had a restful break, and an opportunity to enjoy time with family.

As always, health and safety remain our highest priorities, and this post contains a link to information regarding mandatory weekly in-school testing for COVID-19 in all reopened buildings, and how you can submit the required consent forms.

This guidance applies to students in blended learning, who have already chosen to learn in the school building part of the week, and from home the rest of the week. Students who chose fully remote learning prior to building closures will continue to learn remotely full time.

Please visit the NYC Schools website for detailed information regarding: opening schedules PreK- 12, weekly testing, and student consent.
