Dear I.S. 145 Community,

The health and safety of our students and staff, and everyone in the DOE family across the city, is our top priority. We are committed to ensuring you have the information you need on COVID-19 as we continue to navigate this public health emergency together.

As of this morning, the City has now reached the threshold of test positivity citywide and, as a result, the DOE will temporarily close down all public school buildings, effective Thursday, November 19. This action, along with other city-wide measures, is a key component to address the concerning rise in COVID-19 transmission rates. This closure of buildings is temporary; we will work diligently alongside other City agencies and every New Yorker to bring this transmission rate back down and get back to in-person learning as quickly and as safely as possible.

Despite this temporary closure, our important work continues: learning must go on five days per week, fully remotely for all students for a brief period of time. We are here to help support you as we transition to fully remote learning. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out.

Be safe, healthy, and strong.
Thank you,

Mr. Ivan Rodriguez, Principal
