***IMPORTANT CAMPUS INFORMATION***

Hello All,

As I expect you have heard, there was an explosion a few days ago on the 6th floor of the JFK campus.
Thankfully no staff were present or hurt but we are keeping in our thoughts and prayers the 3 contractors that
were badly hurt in the explosion.

We spoke with the Department of Education today (Thursday, August 27). The DOE has been looking at the many possibilities for the seven schools in the building to start the new school year. We were informed that the final report on the state of the building should be completed by tomorrow. We will speak to them at this time and will relay this information to you as soon as we get it.

At present, the campus is closed so you will not reach anyone at the school number but we will send out any
important updates via email, the website and the phone messenger. Regardless of this situation with our campus building,
please make sure to prepared to start school on the first day of school, Wednesday September 9th.

Rest assured that all Marble Hill students will continue with their studies at Marble Hill. There is absolutely no need for students or parents to look for another school to transfer to. The DOE is working to make sure that there is as little disruption as possible as we start our new year together. Whether we are at the Kennedy Campus or at another location, we will continue with the same standards of education we have always had.

Again, please be prepared on September 9th to begin the 2015 school year.
Please look for another update Thursday afternoon.

Sincerely,

Ms. Larson

Estimados padres,
Como quizás ya sabrán, la noche del 20 de agosto se produjo una
explosión en un laboratorio de ciencias del edificio donde funciona el
campus John F. Kennedy (JFK Campus). La explosión dañó parte del
edificio escolar.

La seguridad de nuestros alumnos es nuestra primera prioridad y
preocupación; y el Departamento de Educación de la Ciudad de Nueva
York (DOE) y otras entidades de la Ciudad están en el campus para
evaluar el daño y determinar las reparaciones que se necesitarán.

El DOE examinará el edificio de una manera exhaustiva antes de tomar
una decisión sobre si se reubica la escuela a otro edificio para el 9 de
septiembre, el primer día de clases. Tendremos una decisión después de
que hayamos podido completar nuestra evaluación del edificio.

Los mantendremos al tanto sobre el estatus del recinto escolar y dónde
su hijo se debe reportar el primer día de clases, conforme nos vaya
llegando más información.

Gracias por su paciencia. Si tiene preguntas, comuníquese con nosotros
al 212-374-4118 de lunes a viernes entre 9 de la mañana y 5 de la tarde
o por correo electrónico a JFKCampus@schools.nyc.gov en cualquier
momento.

Muy atentamente,

Elizabeth Rose
Vicecanciller
