School is Closed

Good Evening PS9,

Due to the decision of the Mayor and the Department of Education, there will be no school from Monday, March 16 to at least Monday, April 20, 2010 (it is possible that school will not reconvene until the fall of 2020). We will have answers to all of your questions as we receive guidance from the DOE this week.

We will do all we can to keep you updated and engaged during this difficult time.

Effective Monday, March 23, Regional Enrichment Centers will be available for the children of first responders, healthcare workers, and our most vulnerable populations, with more details to follow.

Additionally, remote learning will go into effect for grades K-12. DOE will support schools at all levels of readiness to deliver remote learning, and more information will be provided to families about online platforms.
