Governor Cuomo Extends School Closures Through 04-29-2020
Regents Exams Canceled for the Rest of the Year

Good Evening Yonkers Public Schools Family,
Today, Governor Cuomo extended school closures through April 29, 2020.  At this time, schools are expected to open on April 30, 2020. 
This is our fourth week of distance learning.  Everyone, most importantly our students, is working very hard and we are getting better and more effective at remotely teaching and learning every day.  Continuity of instruction is provided by your administrators, teachers, and the Central Office Instructional Team.  The CSEA staff prepares breakfast and lunch daily for our students and families in need, and childcare is available to our first responders.  Thank you all for working so diligently.
Students, it is extremely important for you to complete all assigned work and maintain a log of work completed as evidenceStudents and families will receive a Student Work Log from their principals this week.  Additionally, students should maintain daily communication with their teachers. 
For high school students, the Board of Regents has canceled all Regents examinations for the remainder of this year.  Guidance about how students will receive Regents credit will be issued by the State Education Department this week. We will send an update.
Our students’ success is our top priority during this difficult period, and always.  I ask everyone to work cooperatively and support our students and each another.  Please feel free to email your building principal with questions or concerns.  We are in this together and focused on what our students need most – consistency and support.

Have a good evening,

Dr. Edwin M. Quezada
