At the 139th Annual Meeting of the Yonkers Board of Education, held by video conferencing because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Trustees re-elected Rev. Steve Lopez and Ms. Judith Ramos Meier to serve as president and vice-president respectively. Both will serve one-year terms in their leadership posts.

The Governor’s Executive Order requires all schools in the state to remain closed until April 15, 2020, at least. It also requires Districts to continue distance learning, meals, and childcare during any remaining vacation or snow days, including the upcoming Spring Recess.
There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our schools, but the District is preparing for a prolonged closure. Schools will be closed for students on Friday, March 13 for Superintendent’s Conference Day.
