On Monday, the Governor announced that all public school buildings in New York State will now remain closed until April 29. The State also announced that high school Regents exams have been canceled. We will be providing official guidance on the effect of Regents on our high school students by mid-week once the State has provided additional details.
In this extended period of time, we will continue to engage in remote learning as we as a city practice social distancing so that everyone in our school communities can remain safe. Additionally, we will continue to serve nutritious food to children and adults at Meal Hubs across the city, and Regional Enrichment Centers will continue to serve the children of essential workers on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19.
While the shift to remote learning has been challenging for all of us, each day we hear countless examples of how our students, family, teachers, and staff are adapting and improving on the day before. These efforts demonstrate the virtues of perseverance, flexibility, and caring for one another that we all need during this unprecedented time.
We are committed to keeping you up to date with news and further information about this situation as it continues to unfold.
