Some of the staff at PS/IS 30 in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, an area deeply effected by COVID19, decided to send some joy & uptown funk to their students.

Our goal at NIA/IS 30 is to deliver a seamless way for our students to interact with our teachers, educators and each other during this public health crisis.
We are adopting a distance-learning model with the safety of students being our top priority. After school provides unique learning experiences to help students reinforce their day school lessons, develop important life skills, and grow socially and emotionally. We want to continue to offer as many of these experiences as possible during these changing times.
