I.S. 27 Staten Island has a confirmed case of coronavirus in the school community.

The school will be cleaned and disinfected over the weekend in accordance with New York State Department of Health guidelines and must be complete before accepting returning students. As a reminder, NYCDOE routinely conducts deep cleanings in schools and programs.

During this time, the DOE and the NYC Health Department will determine any further next steps that need to be taken.

We anticipate that we will be able to perform all necessary steps over the weekend, and we anticipate that we will have school open on Monday, March 16, 2020, pending confirmation from the NYC Health Department.

Parents will be notified in advance of the reopening time. We will confirm status of school for this upcoming Monday by Sunday, March 15.

Every elected official on Staten Island has jointly called for schools to be closed next week.
