Dear Advanced Placement (AP) Students and Families: We know this is an incredibly challenging time and we commend you for your courage, determination, and commitment. The transition to remote learning has presented unique issues and has demanded a lot of flexibility on the part of our AP students and families citywide.

The health and safety of our students, families and school community is our priority. On Monday, March 23, 2020, Boys and Girls High School will be transitioning to remote learning in response to COVID-19. We understand that this transition will have a significant impact on our scholars, and I want to assure you that as a school community, we have collaborated and designed academic and social-emotional structures to support them through this process during this challenging time. Please see attached for more information...
As we head into our first day of remote learning, Chancellor Richard Carranza prepared a letter for the families of all our New York City public school students.
In order to successfully fight COVID-19, our first responders, health care providers, transit workers, and other key personnel must be able to come to work. That is why we have created Regional Enrichment Centers (RECs)—places where the children of these front-line workers can be safely cared for while their parents continue to serve the city in this time of need. Staffed by DOE employees and community-based organization partners, the centers will provide children with three hot meals daily, remote learning time with their teachers, activities like art and music, and social and emotional support. Regional Enrichment Centers will be available citywide. Please view attached file for more information...
Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza announced the City will move towards a new Remote Learning Model for all school days until Spring Recess. Students will not report to school buildings for instruction during this time. School buildings are scheduled to reopen to students following Spring Recess on Monday, April 20, 2020.
