IS24 Classroom Closure Update

Please note the media has reported a “classroom closure” at I.S. 24. This is not the case. The NYC Department of Education uses the term “classroom closure” very loosely and applied it to the case of a staff member who tested positive but was not in the building or with classes of students.

Our school campus has been chosen as a COVID-19 vaccine site by the City of New York for the week of September 13-17.

A schedule of times will be available in the coming days by visiting the site below if you are interested. No vaccinations will be available on Thursday, September 16 in observance of Yom Kippur. Important information: You will not need to provide proof of immigration status or a social security number to get vaccinated. ID is only required for proof of age. You do not need health insurance to get vaccinated. All minors who are 12 to 15 must be accompanied to the vaccination site by a parent or guardian, or another adult caregiver designated by the parent/guardian. Have questions about the vaccine? Visit the NYC Covid-19 Vaccine page(Open external link) for all the facts.
