Williamsburg Charter High School closed as NYPD investigates shooting
Williamsburg Charter High School will not be holding in-person classes for the remainder of the week following a shooting that took place outside the school on Wednesday.
Students say they received a phone call that the charter school would be closed for in-person classes on Thursday and will not be open on Friday either. The school’s website says classes will be held remotely.
Two students and a security guard were shot just before dismissal at the charter school on Wednesday. All three are expected to be OK.
The school posted on Instagram that there will be a virtual information session at 6 p.m. on Thursday, and are asking parents and students to submit questions.
