Friday Update 10/9/2020
Thank you for helping us all get through this week.As a reminder, there is no school (in person or virtual) this Monday, October 12 due to Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
All families, even those who are fully remote, must submit a “lunch application.” While the name is misleading, this determines how much extra funding our school is eligible for. Please, please, please fill one out – even if you’re fully remote and even if your child never eats school lunch. You should enter your NYC zip code to complete the app for the NYC school district https://www.myschoolapps.com/Home/PickDistrict
For hybrid families – Next week will be “week 1” of the in-person schedule. Tuesday will be Group B, Wednesday is Group A, Thursday is Group B, and Friday is Group C. As a reminder, adults should check students’ temperatures and do a COVID symptom screening at home before leaving for school. Each day an adult must complete the daily health screening on the DOE website for each student. You do not have to login, you may use the “guest screening” option and fill in the student’s info. We must be shown this at drop-off for each in-person day. https://healthscreening.schools.nyc/
As you have seen with some schools across the city, sometimes school closures happen overnight based on COVID case reports. Every hybrid family should have an emergency care plan in place in case we receive notice that our building must close and your child was scheduled to attend that day. Planning and preparing is the best we can do right now for this possibility.
Please continue to have patience with our teachers and staff as we continue to try to support all families and students.
