2020-2021 School Calendar

Spuyten Duyvil generally follows the school closings of the NYC Dept of Ed. Therefore these dates are tentative as we await that posting. We have also omitted our traditional whole-school on-site events this year. Should health conditions change, we will be delighted to return them to our schedule.

This calendar is written for in-school families. Remote instruction schedule will be adapted as appropriate.

Meanwhile this calendar should give a pretty solid framework of what the year will look like, of course pending any unforeseen events.
