Update for Families on Health and Safety Protocols

Posted by on 1:29 pm in News, Parent Corner | 0 comments

Dear Parents and Students, We hope you are safe and healthy, and finding some rest and relaxation this summer. As we are approaching the start of the 2020-21 school year, we want to share some important new information with you about health and safety protocols in our school (and all schools in general) for the upcoming school year. All schools are preparing for blended learning, during which students learn in-person in school buildings for part of the week, and continue learning remotely from home on the other days. However, any family can choose 100% remote learning for any reason. If your preference is 100% remote learning, we ask that you let us know by this Friday, August 7, so that schools have enough time to plan. Please visit schools.nyc.gov/returntoschool2020 to fill out a short web form, or call 311. You can find the reminder of this letter which includes: Criteria to Open Schools and Keep Them OpenWhat Happens if Someone Gets SickOverall Health and Safety Protocols for Every School By going to this link. My information will be sent out in the coming weeks, so please stay...
