Important Update Regarding Weather and Transportation
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We have received a message from Deputy Chancellor Elizabeth Rose, regarding transportation in anticipation of tomorrow’s snowstorm.
“At this time we are cancelling all field trips requiring yellow buses and PSAL games for tomorrow. Elementary schools should also cancel any field trips planned using public transportation or walking. We strongly encourage middle and high schools to postpone all field trips as well.
We will make a decision regarding the school day, after-school, and evening programs following a 4:00pm update from the National Weather Service. Information regarding school activities tomorrow will be shared via email to all principals and superintendents, on the DOE website at http://schools.nyc.gov, via social media, and on local radio and television stations.”

Danish Visit on April 22, 2016
On Friday, April 22, 2016, the Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Mr. Esben Lunde Larsen along with Ms. Anna Cecile De Klauman, Minister Counselor, Food Agriculture and Fisheries and five staff members visited our culinary kitchen.
In addition to providing a wonderful lunch Chef Bill Peacock and several of our aspiring chefs gave an informative description of our culinary program. Wildcat graduate and Culinary Associate Luis Nova described the transformative hydroponics program.
The Danish delegation was in N.Y.C. to attend the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. Ms. De Klauman had this to say about their visit to our Bronx campus, “I have to say that the visit more than lived up to our expectations! It was very inspiring and interesting to learn about the Wildcat program and your teaching philosophy – the Culinary program and the Urban farming and not least to meet and talk with your fantastic students. The food they prepared was amazing. When we left the Wildcat school the minister said, that this was a visit that he would never forget.”
