Preschool and School-Age Programs Temporarily Closed Beginning March 16

Dear Families,

In line with the NYC public schools closures announced today by Mayor de Blasio, all Birch Family Services preschool and school-age programs will be closed to students beginning Monday, March 16, 2020. There remain no diagnoses in our schools, however as a precautionary measure to help curtail the spread of the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus), school programs will be closed to students until April 20, at which point, the situation will be reevaluated.

In the meantime, we are working to develop remote learning opportunities for school age children as well as other home-learning resources for both programs.

I thank you for your understanding and patience at this difficult time and for your ongoing concern for  the people we support.
