Feb. 20, 21 and 22 Vacation Days Cancelled and June 4th to be a Full Day

Dear Families,

As you know, Hurricane Sandy resulted in the loss of instructional school days. To ensure that students have the opportunity to make up the learning time they missed due to the storm, they will need to make up these days later in the year:

All schools will hold full-day sessions from Wednesday, February 20, through Friday, February 22. These days were previously scheduled as part of mid-winter recess. Elementary schools, intermediate/junior high schools, and D75 schools will hold full-day sessions on Tuesday, June 4, which was previously scheduled as a shortened clerical day for these schools.

Please note these changes as you determine your plans for these dates. Additional information on the impact of Hurricane Sandy is available in an FAQ for families on the DOE web site, http://schools.nyc.gov.

Please contact your school’s principal or parent coordinator with any questions or concerns.
