School Plans for the Week of September 28

September 25, 2020

Dear Families, 

We have a lot of important information to share with you regarding school next week. I know this message is long but please read it all carefully. You should have received this message on Bloomz. If you do not have an active Bloomz account please email your name and your child’s name to
No School on Monday: There is no school (remote or in-person) on Monday due to Yom Kippur.   
Tech:  All families who have requested devices or indicated their DOE devices were not functioning properly have been contacted by a member of our tech team. If you are still having tech issues please email our Parent Coordinator Dorothy Cantwell at or send her a message on Bloomz.
For those of you who have chosen fully-remote learning: your teachers will be in touch about next week’s remote schedule soon. It is very important your child attends each day and on time. Please reach out to your child’s teacher directly with any questions. 
For those of you joining us in-person beginning next week: please read this message fully. The DOE has instituted strict protocols that families must follow each and every day that their child comes in for in-person learning. 
 —Next week will be “week 2” of the DOE schedule. There is no school (remote or in-person) on Monday due to Yom Kippur. The in-person assignments for next week: Tuesday-Group C, Wednesday-Group A, Thursday-Group B, Friday-Group C.
 —Students will meet their teachers outside the building and unauthorized adults are not allowed in the building. Please be on time. School hours are 8:40am-2:10pm. Caregivers will be expected to wait until 8:40 with their children. Children will be dismissed in their assigned sidewalk spot (the same as dropoff location), so please arrive by 2:05 to meet your child. Social distancing and masks are required by everyone ages 2+ during drop-off and pickup.
 —Students must wear a well-fitting mask to school – masks with vents, bandanas, mesh, or neck gaiters are not permitted. We have a limited supply of disposable masks for students who arrive without a proper mask.
 —There is an online screening tool that families must complete before arriving each day which requires a daily temperature check. You can click here and either login with DOE credentials OR click Guest to type in your child’s information.
—There is a lot of additional guidance and procedures mandated by the DOE. All families coming for in-person learning are required to read the chancellor’s letter available here which details these procedures:
 —Families will receive information about their child’s remote day schedule from their teachers soon. Just as for in-person days, students need to join on time. Please reach out to your child’s teacher with any questions.
Stay well,
