SCHOOL INFORMATION 2020-2021

Dear Parents/Guardians:
By this time, you are most probably aware that Mayor De Blasio stated that schools will be open in September. At the same time, President Trump has threatened to withhold money from schools. Our governor correctly stated that he is the only one who has the authority to open schools, or close them.
Please be advised that my administrative team in the Network Office has been working throughout the period we were closed, to design several plans for September. This is a huge task. We must submit our plans to the NYS Education Department by July 31.
Once our plans are approved, we will notify all parents. What is certain at this time, is that students will be in the actual school building approximately 2 weeks per month and have 2 weeks at home on the computer.
Again, please be reminded that no child will be admitted to an Icahn school without a mask. The mask must be worn all day by children and staff while in the building.
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
As always, thank you for your wonderful children.

Mr. J.  Litt

National Blue Ribbon

   

Hard work really does pay off! Our school is fortunate enough to share that we have been named a National Blue Ribbon School! This is a prestigious award given to schools who achieve academic excellence and close achievement gaps. Additionally, this is given to schools who create a safe and welcoming environment for their students. This year we had a big celebration to honor our school, which was held in Maestros with a carnival theme. Students were encouraged to circulate the room and play games to win prizes. 

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Carl C. Icahn Charter School is to use the Core Knowledge curriculum, developed by E.D. Hirsch, to provide students with a rigorous academic program offered in an extended day/year setting.  Students will graduate armed with the skills and knowledge to participate successfully in the most rigorous academic environments, and will have a sense of personal and community responsibility.  

SCHOOL CLOSING- UPDATED MARCH 16, 2020

 School will be closed from Monday, March 16, 2020 until Friday, April 17, 2020.  School will resume on Monday, April 20, 2020.
