Letter from NYC Schools Chancellor Mr. Carranza.

Dear I.S. 24 Families,
It is our hope that we will be able to share with you and our students the NYC Department of Education school calendar and what the plans are for a September 2020 re-opening of school as soon as they are released. In the meantime please read the attached letter from NYC Schools Chancellor Mr. Carranza.


We will arrange our school website www.barnes24.org to include important information, summer assignments for incoming sixth graders along with next years seventh and eighth grade as well. As soon as we can we will also share school supply lists and all other information you will need to plan for September. Please also be advised an orientation video will be released on our school website for families of incoming students as well.


Both you and I did not expect or wish for this school year to have the ending that it did. We made the most of what he were given and all did our best. The students, staff, and all of you can be proud.


On behalf of the entire faculty and staff we wish you a healthy and safe summer vacation.



Lenny Santamaria
