NEW:: Urgent Update Regarding SPRING BREAK and REGENTS EXAMINATIONS
See below for important information regarding Spring Recess and Regents Examinations. For the health and wellbeing of all New Yorkers, schools must continue to offer remote learning, including during days that were previously scheduled as breaks. As a result, our schools will continue with remote learning through the time originally scheduled for Spring Recess.
School Closures: The State has announced that all schools in New York State will now remain closed through April 29, 2020. Regents Exams: The State has cancelled June 2020 Regents exams. Families of high school students will soon receive additional guidance regarding how this impacts graduation requirements. In short, students who planned to take Regents exams in June 2020 will be exempt from these exams in order to earn their diploma, but they still must complete the required course credits to graduate. Our goal is to make sure that students on track to graduate this year continue to remain on their path toward successful completion of high school.
Remote learning for all students at Frederick Douglass Academy VIII begins Monday March 23, 2020.

Additionally, any student or parent/guardian is eligible to pick up 3 meals per day at our school site. Please only pick up meals if you are currently healthy and you are not exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms. Remember - social distancing saves lives!!
