Like NY’s public schools, the free Advantage Learning Lab on Roosevelt Island
will be closed for “February break” from Friday 2/12, to Monday 2/22. The
Learning Lab has provided service for all children from kindergarten through
8th grade who were enrolled in Blended learning. The NYC Department Of Youth
& Community Development recently expanded its policy so that Learning Labs
can also include Fully Remote students.  

Students are not only attending their on-line classes

under the watchful eyes of professional staff, they are also able to enjoy
enrichment activities 

 like chess, art, and gym activities, 

with adult oversight to maintain social distancing.  

Admission is available on a rolling basis by contacting Paul Fontana, the
Director, at [email protected]. Parents can take advantage of
the February break to contact Paul and make the needed arrangements to begin
when public schools and the Learning Lab are back in session on 2/22.
