Feeling the heat yet, NYC?
As we kick off the first full month of the summer season, many of New York City’s public schools have transitioned to provide Summer Rising, the City’s free summer program for children in grades K–12. Thanks to Summer Rising, thousands of City students are getting outside, learning, and interacting with their peers in safe and supervised learning environments throughout July and August. We are excited to provide these outstanding summer programs in partnership with the City’s Department of Youth and Community Development, as participating students will be better prepared for the start of the 2021–22 school year!
Beyond the start of Summer Rising, this month’s calendar is pretty light. Nonetheless, there are two Citywide holidays (Independence Day and Eid-ul-Adha) to highlight, as well as an important enrollment deadline for incoming 3-K students.
So without further ado, here’s a look at what’s happening in NYC public schools this month, courtesy of our official NYC Public Schools Calendar.
