As of March 13, 2020, both New Dawn Charter Schools are open and in session. In this time, we would like to provide our parents and families with helpful information about the virus, precautions you can take to stay healthy, and support our community.
Brooklyn and Jamaica schools will be closing at 2:00 p.m. for professional development and thorough cleaning of both facilities for the next 48 hours. Check back frequently for updates and information as it is on-going.
Remember, we are in this together and owe it to everyone to practice safe hygiene, self-care, and we are here to maintain a healthy environment, physically and mentally.
Recommendations as we continue as a community:
Wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
Cover your mouth when you cough, sneeze, or yawn.
If any of your students or family members are known to be ill or have symptoms described in the attachments, please be sure to stay home. Absences are not being affected in New York City for students.
It is all of our responsibility to limit exposure, but also to be realistic and compassionate about those around us.
