Important Update from the Chancellor:
October 5, 2020
I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. This morning, we wrote to you to share plans to close your child’s school building this Wednesday, October 7, transitioning to fully remote teaching and learning. This is because your child’s school is located in one of nine zip codes in Brooklyn and Queens that is experiencing elevated rates of COVID-19 transmission. This afternoon, the State of New York announced that the closure of school buildings in these zip codes, will now take place starting tomorrow, Tuesday, October 6. That means that beginning on Tuesday, October 6, your child will be in fully remote learning for an initial two-week period. You will hear from your child’s school leadership and teachers very shortly, along with important next steps. The City is taking these steps to ensure we can contain spread of the coronavirus across our communities. When transmission rates decrease to under 3%, then your child’s school can reopen—as soon as Wednesday, October 21. If the transmission rates persist above 3% in these zip codes, the Mayor has proposed keeping school buildings closed and other precautions in place for a longer duration. We will proactively provide you with updates on all key details related to the building closure—including reopening. It is important to note that there is no evidence that schools in these zip codes have had an increase in positive cases, nor is there any indication that higher transmission rates in these neighborhoods is due to school buildings being open. The step to close school buildings is one of many steps being taken to help reduce transmission in these specific zip codes......PLEASE SEE PDF FOR MORE INFORMATION:

As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and early childhood programs will operate on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students will have some school days in person, and some school days remotely. Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning.
