Myra S. Barnes Intermediate School 24


Dear I.S. 24 Parent/Guardian, Faculty & Students,

As a precaution for the safety of our students, faculty and staff we have decided to cancel the following after-school activities on Thursday, February 9th:

1.     United Activities Unlimited (UAU)

2.     CHAMPS Volleyball

3.     After School Math Academy

4.     CASA Intrepid Program

My preemptive decision is based on the weather forecasts and the DoE's decision to already cancel PSAL activities and all field trips citywide. More information will be announced by the Mayor's office after 4:00 pm today regarding the school day.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
