It is hard to recall another time as gut-wrenching and heartbreaking as these recent days have been. George Floyd’s murder at the hands of police officers last week was horrifying. I am sickened. But, like many of you, I am not surprised. We have seen this abominable disregard for Black lives so many times before, including multiple times in recent weeks. It is truly agonizing to witness; it is nothing short of another pandemic presenting itself on the streets of America.
The New York City Department of Education condemns police brutality and this brutal loss of life. My heart breaks to know that yet another Black family has lost a son, a father, a brother. I stand in solidarity with Black New Yorkers and Americans, and with everyone who is mourning yet another senseless loss. Pain ripples and resonates across communities all over the City. I am with all of you as we individually and collectively reckon with this tragic injustice. . . . .
Richard A. Carranza Chancellor New York City Department of Education
Please see the attached letter for the full statement by the Chancellor.
New York City will move towards a new Remote Learning Model for all school days until the end of the school year. Students will NOT report to school buildings for instruction. Teachers will prepare materials for students to use at home; and we will contact families with more information.
Breakfast and Lunch will be available at both buildings as "grab-and-go meals."
"Grab-and-go meals" will be available at PS 230 - Monday through Friday, 7:30 am - 1:30 pm
Be Safe! Be Well! Please contact Jill Reinier, Parent Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
Letter from the Chancellor:

There are a number of actions we have taken and many things you can do to keep our communities safe. The most important action you can take is to stay home if you are sick.
Our PTA mission is to support in-school enrichment programs, low-cost after-school programs, community events, improvements to our buildings, and countless benefits to all PS230 students. ALL OUR EVENTS ARE ORGANIZED AND RUN BY PARENT/GUARDIAN VOLUNTEERS!
