Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all DOE schools will be closed until April 20, 2020. Closure may last longer depending on the directions provided by the New York City Mayor and Chancellor.
Students are expected to engage in Remote Learning while schools are closed. Remote Learning will begin on March 23, 2020. Students should use their @bxdesign.org email address to access their classes via Google Classroom. Teachers will be on hand to support student learning remotely (phone, email, video).
