Building Closing Procedures

Types of Building Closures

For the 2021-2022 school year, all school days will happen, regardless of weather or COVID.

It is CRITICAL that we have the most up-to-date contact information for our families. If you have not been receiving emails or phone blasts, send an email to to ask how to update your information. We may provide you with steps to prove your identity.

COVID Related Closures

Positive cases of COVID among staff or students will result in quarantine of either students, classrooms, or the entire school building. In general, only unvaccinated students affected by being a close contact of a COVID positive scholar or staff member will need to quarantine.


For individual quarantining, scholars and families affected by closures will be contacted by telephone directly from the NYC Test and Trace team. For a school-wide closure, we will communicate via email, phone, and the school website and social media.

Weather and Other Citywide Building Closures

For weather or other citywide closures of school buildings, all learning will be done remotely. This year, all instructional days happen regardless of whether it is in person or remote.


Check local media, call the school to hear a pre-recorded message, and/or check the school's website and social media.
