    PLEASE READ: SCHOOLS ARE NOW REMOTE as of Thursday November 19th.

    November 18, 2020

    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

  • Letter from Principal Sichenze - November 16

    Dear PS 102 Family,

    As you are aware, the City is experiencing elevated rates of COVID-19 transmission. Out of an abundance of caution, and to keep our school communities safe, the Chancellor is asking all schools to be prepared for a brief time of fully remote learning, system wide. While no decision has been made about a system-wide transition to remote learning, we are preparing for the possibility of a school closure and all our students going fully remote.

    Our teachers have begun sending home additional learning materials with blended learning students on their day of attendance and we have made the following arrangements for Group D (Fully Remote) parents to pick up packets in the large school yard between 9am and 12pm. 

    Grade 4 & 5 - 11/15 and 11/16 (Monday and Tuesday) 

    Grade 1, 2 & 3 - 11/16 and 11/17 (Tuesday and Wednesday) 

    Grade K has already been notified by teachers to continue to pick up materials from the outside lobby at the main entrance this week. 

    Please reach out to the parent coordinator if you need a device for remote learning or need any further support.

    MElliotSheri@schools.nyc.gov

    Together, we can do anything!

    Thank you

    Cornelia Sichenze

    11/11/2020 1:36 PM

    Dear P.S. 102 The Bayview at 211 72 STREET Community:

    The health and safety of our students and staff and everyone in the DOE family across the city, is our top priority. We are committed to ensuring you have the information you need on COVID-19 as we continue to navigate this public health emergency together.  

    Today we are writing to inform you that one member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19. At this time, this is the only confirmed case at the school. We are quickly taking all appropriate action and following rigorous protocols developed by the NYC Test + Trace Corps, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC Health), and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

    Out of an abundance of caution, here is what will happen next to safeguard the health of our school community: 

    • All students and teachers in the affected class(es) with the individual who tested positive are considered “close contacts,” and have been notified of the need to quarantine for 14 days since the last contact with the person who tested positive.
      • These students and teachers will transition to fully remote teaching and learning for this period.
    • The NYC Test + Trace Corps and NYC Health will complete their investigation to identify and notify any other close contacts in the building, who will also need to quarantine for 14 days.
    • We will share physical and mental health and wellness resources for you and your child. COVID-19 can be stressful for you and your loved ones. It is natural to feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious and afraid. We want to ensure you can access helpful resources for coping and reducing stress.

    While New Yorkers have done an outstanding job fighting the virus, leading to extremely low infection rates citywide, COVID-19 is still active in our city, state and our country. There will be cases of COVID-19 this school year; we know this, and all of our protocols have been in service of fighting this virus. Our job is to swiftly and effectively handle any cases that appear and be transparent every step of the way. That is what we are doing today.

    We know a lot more than we did in March about how to protect each other from the virus and it’s critical that we continue to act to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our schools. All of us must remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission: 

    • Stay home if sick: Monitor your and your child’s health and stay home if you are sick or keep them home if they are sick, except for getting essential medical care (including COVID-19 testing) and other essential needs.
    • Physical distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household.
    • Wear a face covering: Protect those around you. Wearing a face covering helps reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially if you are sick and don’t have symptoms. For more information about face coverings, visit gov/health/coronavirus and look for "FAQ About Face Coverings."
    • Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available; clean frequently touched surfaces regularly; avoid touching your face with unwashed hands; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking.

    Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. For additional information on COVID-19, visit schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus or call 311. Finally, to ensure we can rapidly reach you via text and email, please set up a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa.

    Thank you for your cooperation. Health and safety will always come first in New York City public schools, no matter what.

    Sincerely,

    Cornelia Sichenze

  • Please read this important letter from the Department of Education that was sent to our school today.

    October 22, 2020

    Dear Families,

    I hope your family is keeping safe and healthy. I’m writing today with an update on an important precaution we are taking to keep you, your child, and your child’s educators safe: COVID-19 random testing for staff and students, here in school.

    You recently received a letter from the New York City Department of Education (DOE), NYC Department of Health (DOH), and NYC Test & Trace Corps describing a joint effort to conduct COVID-19 testing in our public schools. This letter can be found at schools.nyc.gov/messagesforfamilies. The State of New York has determined that our school is located in a geographic zone, the “yellow zone,” that requires weekly testing due to elevated rates of transmission in the area.  Weekly testing of students and staff is mandatory for schools in the yellow zone, and will continue until the State modifies or lifts the zone requirements. You can find a map of the City’s zones at nyc.gov/covidzone.

    Mandatory in-school testing will be conducted for school staff and students in grades 1-12. The test is easy, quick, and safe. Thousands of students have already been tested across the city. A “short swab” (similar to a Q-tip) will be inserted into the front part of the nose for five to ten seconds. Later this school year, it is possible that tests will be administered by collecting a small amount of saliva (spit).

    In order to test your child, we need your consent. There are two easy ways to provide consent. Please note that even if you previously provided consent, as a parent at a state-designated Yellow Zone school, we ask you to resubmit the consent form for your child, as the consent form accounts for the newly-established mandate from the State requiring weekly testing in our school. Whether you have filled out a form previously, or if you have not yet filled out a form, please use these easy methods to provide consent:  

    1. Online: Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA). Go to nyc.
      • If you already have a NYCSA account linked to your student(s): Log in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your student. 
      • If you do not already have a NYCSA account: You can create one right away! If you have an account creation code from your school, you can create a full account in approximately five minutes, and then provide consent as described above. If you do not have an account creation code from your school, you can still provide your consent right away by clicking “Manage Consent” under “COVID-19 Testing” and filling out your and your child’s information to provide consent.

    Paper Form: Fill out and return the paper form to school.We have included the updated consent form with this letter. Your school can print and provide this form to you, or you can print it at home and send in with your child on their next in-person blended learning day. A printable PDF file is available in ten languages at nyc.gov/covidtesting.   

    Here are some important notes for your awareness. You can find additional information under Frequently Asked Questions at schools.nyc.gov/covidtesting.

    • A random selection of students and staff will be tested each week, so if your child is selected one week, they may or may not also be tested the following week.
    • If your child is tested at school, information about the testing process, and when and how you will receive the results, will be sent home with your child. Most testing results will be available within 48 hours.
    • Please be assured that, even after we receive your consent, your child will not be tested if they are uncomfortable or become distressed at any point during the process. If that happens, we will work with you to address any potential concerns so that your child is comfortable participating in future testing.
    • If your child tests positive for COVID-19, you will receive two phone calls. The testing provider will notify you via a telephone call, and NYC Test & Trace Corps will call to provide your family with resources and support.

    If any member of the school community tests positive during this testing process, our school community will continue to follow the guidelines outlined on the Health & Safety section of the DOE website (schools.nyc.gov/RTShealthsafety). 

    We deeply appreciate your partnership and your commitment to keeping our school community safe and healthy.

    Sincerely,
    Cornelia Sichenze
    Principal

    10/30/2020 6:54 AM

We are handling this situation with the utmost seriousness, working in partnership with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC Health) to confirm test results. At this time there are no plans for classroom or school closures, and students should continue to attend as regularly scheduled unless they are feeling ill. If and only if the individual tests positive, you will receive another update informing you and framing the next steps.

    If the case is confirmed, we will work with NYC Health and the NYC Test + Trace Corps to quickly take all appropriate action, including tracing close contacts. Any close contacts will be instructed to quarantine for 14 days since their last contact with the individual who tested positive.
