Please read the attached letter from Chancellor Carranza where he discusses "As we head into winter, it’s likely we will have inclement weather that in an ordinary year would cause all @NYCSchools to close for teaching and learning. This year, if weather demands that school buildings close, all schools will still be in session remotely on that day."
This weekend, Chancellor Carranza released a letter that speaks to the current status of reopening NYC schools, as well as how we will be able to keep schools open moving forward, even though blended learning students in grades 6-12 will continue to learn remotely at this time. In this letter, Chancellor Carranza details what you will need to know about mandatory, in-school testing and how to submit consent for in-school random testing.
The DOE, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA), is offering a series of conversational-English classes for New York City families. During these three sessions, families will practice their English-language conversational skills, learn about the free city services available to all New Yorkers, and connect with other families across the city. This course will focus on how families can access NYC services concerning career support, education, and workers’ rights.
The sessions will take place from 5:30–7:30 p.m., on December 2, 9, and 16 via Zoom. Please look at the attached flyer and sign up using this form. If you are interested in more information, please visit the We Speak NYC website and email any question to DML@schools.nyc.gov.
Given recent increases in transmission, we have reached a point in our City’s infection rate that requires all students to transition to remote learning. Beginning Thursday, November 19, all school buildings will be closed, and all learning will proceed remotely for all students, until further notice. Please note that this is a temporary closure, and school buildings will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
We expect all students to continue following their programs and schedules, adhering to the 6-day rotation. Please consult the schedule in the Essential Links or in the Banner Alert at the top of the screen.
