New York City public school buildings will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, December 17, 2020

Dear I.S. 24 Students and Families,
Due to expected severe weather conditions, all New York City public school buildings will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, December 17, 2020. All instruction will take place remotely.  We understand its not a "snow day" but we have to follow the rules set by New York City leaders to remind students it will be a remote learning day.


Learning Bridges and Learning Labs, after-school programs, adult education, and YABC programs are cancelled tomorrow. Food distribution sites are closed as well. 


For safety reasons, yellow bus service for charter and non-public school students will not operate tomorrow.


The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for tomorrow and NYC Emergency Management has also issued a Hazardous Travel Advisory beginning tonight through tomorrow afternoon.


Snow is anticipated to begin tonight and continue until as late as noon tomorrow.


Additional information will be posted on the DOE website


Safety is of the utmost importance. New Yorkers are encouraged to use public transportation during storm conditions and use caution when walking, biking and driving and allow for additional travel time. 


The DoE is continuing to monitor the storm’s progress, and we will email everyone immediately if anything changes. 


Please stay warm and safe tonight and tomorrow.
