Continuity of Learning April 9-17

Parents and Families,

You may have heard that earlier this week Governor Cuomo canceled spring break (April 9-17) across the State. For public New York City Department of Education schools, this means that “school” will be held daily through what was scheduled as a spring break.

As an independent community charter high school, Williamsburg Charter High School has the independence and ability to decide on a schedule that best serves our students, staff and families. 

We understand that this has been a very stressful time. Students and families have been asked to make many changes in how they live and learn. With all that said, we believe it is time for some rest and that some break is necessary for everyone to rejuvenate.

Therefore, the Board of Trustees, in partnership with WCHS Leadership, opted to create a continuity of learning plan for the period between April 9-17 that will allow for our students to continue to be engaged and for our staff to have some rest. Students will have a project to complete over the course of April 9-17 but can do so at their own pace.

We will be rolling out details about what it will look like over the next few days. If you have any questions, please contact covidconcerns@thewcs.org.

Thank you.
