Dear Brooklyn Hurricane Community,

As we approach Thanksgiving Break, I would like to take a moment to share my gratitude and appreciation to our students, staff, parents, and community for your continued patience and support on behalf of the district. The successful start to the school year in an in-person format reflects the strong communication and partnership that we share. I am continually impressed by the creativity, determination, and learning demonstrated by our students. The progress and growth made by our students would not be possible without our amazing families, teachers, administrators, and staff. Thank you for the dedication, effort, and care you provide every day on behalf of your students. 

As a reminder, there will be no school for students on Monday, November 22nd and Tuesday, November 23rd due to scheduled Teacher In-Service days. Thanksgiving Break will occur from Wednesday, November 24th through Friday, November 26th, with classes resuming on Monday, November 29th

On behalf of the Brooklyn City Schools, I wish our entire Hurricane School Community an enjoyable and Happy Thanksgiving Break!


Dr. Theodore Caleris, Superintendent
Brooklyn City Schools
