Update to School Calendar - letter from Chancellor Walcott

posted Nov 20, 2012, 5:38 AM by Sylwia Jasinski
Dear Families,
As you know, Hurricane Sandy resulted in the loss of instructional school days. To ensure that
students have the opportunity to make up the learning time they missed due to the storm, they
will need to make up these days later in the year:
All schools will hold full-day sessions from Wednesday, February 20, through Friday,
February 22. These days were previously scheduled as part of mid-winter recess.
Elementary schools, intermediate/junior high schools, and D75 schools will hold full-day
sessions on Tuesday, June 4, which was previously scheduled as a shortened clerical day
for these schools.
Please note these changes as you determine your plans for these dates. Additional information on
the impact of Hurricane Sandy is available in an FAQ for families on the DOE web site,
Please contact your school’s principal or parent coordinator with any questions or concerns.
Dennis M. Walcott
