After missing a full week of school because of Superstorm Sandy, the city’s public school students will make up those days from February 20-22 and on June 4, the Department of Education (DOE), announced Monday evening.

The first three dates were taken from the five days schools students normally have off for Mid-Winter Recess, and the June date was a scheduled half-day that will now be a full day of classes

“We are pleased that the city, the CSA [Council of School Supervisors and Administrators] and the UFT [United Federation of Teachers] reached an agreement on making up school days lost as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Teachers, principals and the school community made an extraordinary effort to get our schools back online after the storm, and by working together, we were able to open most schools with minimal disruption. It is just as important that we recover the time lost, and this agreement will provide students with additional class instruction,” a statement released from the DOE, CAS and UFT said.
