    ALL NYC SCHOOL BUILDINGS ARE CLOSED STARTING TOMORROW, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18th.

    LETTER FROM RICHARD CARRANZA

     

    Dear Families,    


    I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
    All of us at the Department of Education have been so proud to witness the joy of students and educators reuniting
    and learning together this year. We have been the only major school district in the nation to reopen our buildings.
    The benefit to hundreds of thousands of students is incredible, as school communities have reconnected in person
    for learning, growing, and supporting one another.
    All along, we have kept health and safety at the forefront of everything we do. That includes carefully monitoring
    COVID-19 transmission rates across the city and, when necessary in response to infections, temporarily closing
    our school buildings and transitioning students to fully remote learning.
    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. You will hear from your
    principal shortly about next steps for you and your student. Please note that this is a temporary closure, and school
    buildings will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
    I am sure you have many questions, and below you can find some important guidance to provide some answers.
    As always, we are committed to academic excellence, community-building, and social-emotional support for your
    child—no matter where they are learning.
    Devices for Remote Learning
    Do you need a device, need technical support or to fix a broken device, or are dealing with a lost or stolen device?
    Call DOE’s IT Help desk at 718-935-5100 and press 5 to get assistance.
    You can also get quick help online:
     Browse tech support topics: schools.nyc.gov/technicaltools
     File a tech support ticket: schools.nyc.gov/techsupport
     Request a device: schools.nyc.gov/devices
     Get support with a DOE-issued iPad: schools.nyc.gov/ipadfixes
     Issues with your Internet connection: schools.nyc.gov/internet
    We are committed to ensuring every student is learning 5 days a week. Your child’s school will support you in
    remote learning if you currently don’t have a device by providing paper-based work. Contact your school for
    more info.
    Free Meals for Students and Families
    All families and students can continue to go to any school building between 9:00 a.m. and noon on weekdays to
    pick up three free grab-and-go meals. No identification or registration is necessary. Halal and kosher meals are
    available at some sites, which are listed at schools.nyc.gov/freemeals.
    From 3-5 p.m., New Yorkers of all ages can pick up free meals at 260 Community Meals sites across the city.
    For a list of sites, please visit schools.nyc.gov/freemeals.
    Learning Bridges
    Learning Bridges, the City’s free childcare program for children in 3-K through 8th grade, will continue to serve
    families enrolled in blended learning. We will continue to give priority to children of essential workers, as well
    as students in temporary housing or residing in NYCHA developments, children in foster care or receiving child
    welfare services, and students with disabilities. Families can learn more and apply at
    schools.nyc.gov/learningbridges, and new offers will be made to families weekly as seats are available.
    Early Childhood Education
    3-K and Pre-K classrooms in district schools and DOE Pre-K Centers will be closed. If your child attends a
    program in a community-based center that is not located in a public school, or attends a family childcare program
    that is part of a DOE network, it will remain open. If you are not sure which type of program your child attends
    or have questions about your child’s services, please contact your program directly. Strong supports are in place
    to ensure that these sites can continue operating safely.
    Although we are temporarily shifting to fully remote teaching and learning for all students, if you have recently
    elected to enroll your child in blended learning, your child will be able to begin in-person learning after we reopen.
    I know that for many of you, this decision to temporarily close school buildings that we recently opened up will
    be disappointing, and I understand. But by confronting these challenges together, we can continue to fight back
    against COVID-19. And I am confident that before long, we will be able to safely reopen our school buildings
    again.
    Please remember the “Core Four”: wash your hands, wear a face covering, keep six feet of distance from others,
    and stay home if you’re feeling sick. These are critically important steps that all of us can take every day. 
    We will continue to provide updates, supporting you and everyone in the DOE family as this public health crisis
    continues to evolve. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s school with any questions
    or concerns. We are grateful for your partnership and all you do for our city.


    Sincerely,
    Richard A. Carranza
    Chancellor
    New York City Department of Education

    HEALTH SCREENING FOR STUDENTS AND VISITORS

    In order for any visitor or student to enter the building, he/she must be "cleared."

    Prior to coming to our school, please visit:

    Health Screening Students and Visitors

     Answer the questions for you (if you are visiting) or for your child attending school that day.

    It will tell you if the person is “Cleared to Enter DOE Schools”
    in green, OR “Not Cleared to Enter School Buildings” (red).

    If it is RED, the person is NOT cleared (did not pass) and should stay home. He/she will not be allowed to enter.

    The results must be shown to the school safety agent upon arrival. If you or your child do not have a phone, you can print out the results, and show the print out to the security guard when you/your child arrives. Only those who have a "GREEN LIGHT" will be allowed to enter.
