If you've got a child in public school, you live by the public school calendar. Since its initial release last spring, the DOE has added four more days off to the public school calendar, including Easter Monday, two days of Passover, and Eid al-Adha. Many local NYC preschools follow the public school schedule, too. The New York City Department of Education's calendar for the 2023-2024 school year is below, and you'll want to bookmark it now for reference—and to help with planning school break camp coverage.
Once again, there will be no snow days. Plan on logging your kiddos on for a day of remote learning whenever buildings are closed for snow or other emergencies.
These are all of the dates you can count on your kiddos being out of school during the 2023-24 school year. Looking to make long-term plans? The DOE has already released its 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 NYC public school calendars, too, and we've got all those important dates, too.
