Monday, March 16th – Current Update

To the Parents and Students of Veritas Academy,

By now, you have heard that schools will be closed until at least April 20.  Staff will report on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for training in the projected on-line/distance learning that the DOE is developing and expects to begin on March 23.  Until then, you may wish to avail yourselves of the resources located here:  https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learning/learn-at-home/high-school

That being said, parents and students should know that the entire Veritas community stands ready and committed to supporting you to the fullest during this dire crisis.  We will get through this together. Please feel free to reach out if you need any of us for any reason.  

Sincerely,
Jason Vanderwalker
Principal IA
