I hope this message finds everyone safe and well! Unquestionably, these are trying times for our country, city and local communities. Please respect the advice of our local leaders. JVL Wildcat has faced more adversity than most schools, having been at the center of the 9/11 crisis and Superstorm Sandy. each time our students and staff showed their amazing resilience by returning to school with a renewed spirit and dedication. I expect nothing less from our current students and staff when we are permitted to return. We will be stronger for this and better prepared for life's adversities.

Please encourage our Wildcat students to complete their assignments as best they can. Our staff is ready to help them navigate the systems in place that provide distant learning. They should not hesitiate to contact their teachers for help.

Students who do not have internet access will be notified if and when tablets may be availabe for pickup. we have applied for several grants to help us meet our students' need to access remote learning platforms. In the meantime, we will send copies of lessons to those students who inform us that they are unable to access the internet. Please notify your respective campus for additional information.

Presently there has been no decision as to when students will be able to return to school. In the meantime, we want to stress that this is an opportunity for students to earn their credits while studying at home. At the moment, the regents exams have not been canceled. Our teachers will provide prep work for the exams in the event they are administered as scheduled.

Once again please be safe and well and remain out of harm's way. Remind our youth that thisis not the time for group activities.
