Remind Texting App & Verizon

As a result, Remind will continue to offer text notifications for Verizon Wireless customers. You can read more on Remind’s blog.

Reminder:  The School will be closed on Monday, January 21, in observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday.  We will see you back at school on Tuesday!

Weather notice 
In anticipation of the inclement weather in this weekend’s forecast, we encourage you to take extra precautions to stay safe over the long weekend. 
In times of inclement weather, WFM is not tied to Jersey City schools, which means we will post our own notifications. Any notices about school closures, delayed openings/early closures, or “WFM is open” will be posted on our website, Facebook, Twitter, WNBC TV, WCBS TV and 1010 WINS AM. You also will receive notifications via SchoolCues and Remind.
In the event the area receives enough snow that results in the closure of other schools yet WFM is open, absences will not be counted if you deem it unsafe to arrive at school.
An important reminder: If NYC schools close due to inclement weather, WFM automatically closes as well.
