  • Letter from Chancellor Porter regarding Covid-19 testing and quarantine policy - September 20

    Please read the attached letter from Chancellor Porter.  For translation visit : http://schools.nyc.gov/messagesforfamilies

    September 20, 2021

    Dear Families,

    It was so exciting to welcome students back in our classrooms last week, seeing the joy on their faces as they all
    could finally return to learn in-person with their teachers and classmates! This is a very special time, and we are
    doing everything possible to make sure everyone in our schools remains safe and healthy.

    I invite you to share the amazing experience of that first week of school with me through
    this video (vimeo.com/609642752/70f8506d67) capturing our homecoming experience across the city. 

    In addition to the extensive health and safety measures summarized on our school year 2021-22 webpage
    (schools.nyc.gov/homecoming), we are making two important adjustments to COVID-19 protocols in our
    schools:

     Weekly testing. Starting Monday, September 27, the DOE will increase random COVID-19 testing in
    all elementary, middle, and high schools for students in grades 1-12 from biweekly to weekly. We can
    only test students whose parents have provided an updated testing consent form to their school. You are
    encouraged to provide this consent for your child if you have not done so. If you have already submitted
    a testing consent form for the 2021-22 school year, that consent form remains in effect. If you have not
    yet submitted your consent, you can do so one of two ways: 
    o Fill out the form using your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA): schoolsaccount.nyc or
    o Download the form online at schools.nyc.gov/covidtesting and bring the completed form to your
    child’s school.

     Updated quarantine policy. Also starting Monday, September 27, in accordance with the latest
    guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we will no longer
    close an entire classroom when there is a positive case in the classroom. Unvaccinated students who are
    masked and at least three feet distanced from a student who tests positive are not considered close
    contacts under CDC guidelines and will not have to quarantine. This new policy applies to all students in
    any grade.

    Vaccination is the most important step that we can take to protect our families and our communities against
    COVID-19. To protect your children and school communities, we have mandated that all DOE school
    staff be vaccinated against COVID-19—by September 27, all employees will have received at least one dose of
    the COVID-19 vaccine. To schedule a vaccination appointment for yourself or your eligible student aged 12
    and older, please visit vaccinefinder.nyc.gov.

    We will continue to share everything we are doing to keep your children safe. Our school year back together
    again is already off to a fantastic start, and I look forward to seeing your students thrive and grow this year as
    they learn alongside their peers.

    In partnership,
    Meisha Porter
    New York City Schools Chancellor

  • Letter from Chancellor Porter - September 13, 2021

    September 13, 2021

    Dear Families,

    Welcome to the 2021–2022 school year—our long-awaited homecoming!

    I am beyond excited to begin our historic return to full-time, in-person instruction—after the most challenging 18
    months of our lives. This year, the first day of school means everything to me. Not only because I’m your Schools
    Chancellor, but because I’m also the mother of a New York City public high school student who is over the moon
    to return to the classroom full time.

    My daughter’s experience is a living, breathing testament to what I’ve learned in more than 20 years as an
    educator: nothing replaces the experience between a child and a teacher in a classroom. That is why it feels like a
    dream come true to welcome all our children back to safe, supportive, rigorous school environments. The first
    day of school is a true homecoming for our school communities.

    I know that COVID-19 and the Delta variant are on all our minds, and I want to be clear that the health and safety
    of our children, families, and school staff is our highest priority. For the last several months, we have worked
    with school leaders, public health experts, and union partners to develop and health and safety approach that
    provides multiple layers of scientifically proven prevention strategies.

    We are meeting or exceeding Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for cleaning
    and disinfecting surface areas in our schools, inspection and certification of ventilation in our buildings, and
    regular random testing of staff and students for COVID-19. We know masks work to reduce the spread of disease,
    and we are requiring all students and staff to wear face coverings when riding on school buses and anywhere on
    school property, indoors and outdoors. This is regardless of vaccination status unless students have a medical
    exemption.

    The most important step you can take to protect you and your family from COVID-19 is vaccination. All New
    Yorkers ages 12 and older can receive a free COVID-19 vaccine. In partnership with the NYC Test & Trace
    Corps and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, all school sites serving children 12 and over are
    offering Pfizer-BioNTech vaccinations to eligible New Yorkers during the first week of school (with second doses
    provided at the beginning of October). No appointment is needed, and you can learn more about site hours from
    your school or by visiting schools.nyc.gov/covid19.

    You can find the most up-to-date information on how we’re working to keep students and staff healthy and
    safe on the DOE’s website for school year 2021–22 at schools.nyc.gov/homecoming.

    I hope you are as thrilled as I am about the first day of school. You can be sure I’ll be out visiting classrooms
    throughout the week, welcoming back our students, families, and educators—and celebrating all we have done to
    get to this point.

    As always, I am honored to have you at my side as we usher in our most important first day of school ever. Thank
    you for entrusting your children to us.

    In partnership,
    Meisha Porter
    New York City Schools Chancellor

    September 10, 2021

    We can’t wait to welcome New York City students back to the classroom on the first day of school:
    Monday, September 13. Please see below for important information about the upcoming 2021-22
    school year–and visit our Back to School Checklist for Families (schools.nyc.gov/checklist) for
    additional suggestions on how you and your children can prepare for that special day!

    Contents:
    • Getting Ready
    • COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing
    • At Your Child’s School

    Getting Ready
    Health Screening Tool
    Before entering school buildings each day, every student and staff member must complete the
    Health Screening Form to confirm that they are not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, have
    not recently tested positive, and are not currently required to quarantine based on close contact
    with an infected person.

    We recommend bookmarking healthscreening.schools.nyc on your device so you can quickly and
    easily complete the form before sending your child to school each day.
    Remember, if your child feels ill, do not send them to school! We want to keep your child and our
    school communities healthy and safe, and we must all do our part.

    Stay Connected with the New York City Schools Account
    Stay up to date on important announcements from the DOE and your school, including school
    closures and events happening in your district or citywide! With a New York City Schools Account
    (NYCSA) account, you can update your contact information, fill out important school forms online,
    see your child’s grades, schedules, test scores, assigned transportation, attendance, and more.
    Learn more at: schools.nyc.gov/nycsa

    Submit an Updated Testing Consent Form for Your Child
    It is important that you provide consent for your child to participate in the in-school testing program.
    Submit your updated testing consent form for your child using your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA)
    at schoolsaccount.nyc or by downloading the form online at schools.nyc.gov/covidtesting and
    providing the completed printed form to your child’s school.
    Testing consent forms submitted in the previous school year expire on September 30, 2021. If you
    previously provided consent, your child may be tested this month as part of the in-school testing
    program—however, for your child to participate in the testing program for the remainder of this
    school year, you must submit a new consent form.

    Additional Resources for Families
    As you prepare for the first day of school, please be sure to visit our website for the most up-to-date
    information on the 2021-22 school year: schools.nyc.gov/homecoming
    What’s next? At schools.nyc.gov/checklist you’ll find a Back to School Checklist for Families with
    steps you can take to prepare for a strong start to the school year.

    COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing
    Vaccination
    Vaccination is the most important step you can take to protect you and your family from COVID-19.
    All New Yorkers aged 12 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
    In partnership with the NYC Test & Trace Corps and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
    (DOHMH), all school sites serving students 12 and older are offering Pfizer-BioNTech vaccinations
    to eligible New Yorkers during the first week of school to make it as easy as possible to get
    vaccinated and stay safe. (Second doses will be provided at the beginning of October.) No
    appointment is needed at these sites. You can learn more about site hours from your school or by
    visiting schools.nyc.gov/covid19.
    Vaccine Requirements for Eligible Students Participating in High Risk
    Extracurricular Activities
    Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) Vaccination Policy
    As a reminder, COVID-19 vaccination will be required this year for DOE students and staff
    participating in Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) sports considered high-risk for potential
    COVID-19 transmission. High-risk sports include football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse,
    stunt, and rugby. Vaccination will also be required for participation in bowling because while the
    sport is not high risk, the locations where it occurs require vaccination.
    Participants in fall high-risk sports must get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by the first day
    of competitive play, which varies by sport. Winter and spring PSAL participants have until the
    beginning of their season to be fully vaccinated. For additional information about health and safety
    protocols for PSAL in the 2021-22 school year, please visit schools.nyc.gov/PSAL.
    Extracurricular Activities Vaccination Policy
    Consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and State guidance, COVID-19
    vaccination will be required this year for students who are at least 12 years old and are participating
    in afterschool extracurricular activities considered high-risk for potential COVID-19 transmission.
    High risk afterschool activities include:
    • Chorus
    • Musical Theater
    • Dance / Dance Team
    • Band / Orchestra / Marching Band
    • Cheerleading / Step Teams / Flag Team
    Please reach out to your school for additional information regarding participation in these activities.
    Department of Education (DOE) Vaccination Portal
    You can upload an image of your child’s vaccination card or NYC Excelsior Pass to the DOE’s
    vaccine portal at vaccine.schools.nyc. Submitting that information will support New York City’s
    pandemic response and recovery efforts, helping to ensure that our school communities remain
    safe and healthy.


    COVID-19 Testing in Schools
    Continuing the safety measures introduced in the previous school year, we will be conducting
    regular COVID testing of staff and students grades 1 through 12. That way, action can be taken
    right away to protect the school community if there’s a positive case. As noted above, in order for
    your child to be included in the in-school testing program, you must submit an updated testing
    consent form for your child to your school.
    • You can fill out the form using your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA): schoolsaccount.nyc
    • Download the form online at schools.nyc.gov/covidtesting
    • Don’t have an NYC Schools Account? Learn more at schools.nyc.gov/NYCSA
    At Your Child’s School
    Visitor Safety
    School Visitor Policy
    Effective Monday, September 13, all visitors to DOE school buildings are required to provide proof of
    COVID-19 vaccination (1 dose), in order to enter the building, except in the case of an emergency. This
    proof may be provided in several ways. In order to enter the building, a visitor must:
    • show identification,
    • have proof of vaccination,
    • complete the daily health screening form, and
    • wear a face covering.
    On the first day of school, 3K/Pre-K parents, in small groups, will be able to walk their children into the
    classroom and stay with them briefly on the first day of school without showing proof of vaccination. All
    other requirements apply. Please see schools.nyc.gov/2021health for more information.

    Parent-Teacher Conferences
    The first parent-teacher conferences of the 2021-22 school year will take place in the fall of 2021. As in the
    previous school year, for the safety of our school communities, all parent-teacher conferences will be held
    remotely in school year 2021–22. Your child’s school will be in contact regarding the specific date and time
    of their parent teacher conferences.
    Face Coverings (Masks)
    Wearing face coverings or masks is one of the most important strategies for keeping our school
    communities safe. As mandated by the New York State Department of Health, all students and staff must
    wear a face covering when riding on school buses and on school property (indoors and outdoors),
    regardless of vaccination status, unless they have a medical exemption. Students who are not medically
    able to tolerate masks will be provided with alternative accommodations. We appreciate your support in
    reminding your student to wear a face covering every day to school. Forgot your mask or need a
    replacement? We will make sure to provide your child with one!

  • Family Income Inquiry Form - Please complete today!

    Please complete your Family Income Inquiry Form online today at myschoolapps.com.  Our school is listed as 20K102. The web site is a little confusing, as this form is used across the state to determine if your child qualifies for free or reduced price lunch. In the last several years, all NYC DOE schools have qualified for universal free lunch.  The form is also used to determine Federal Title I funding.  Each year we are close to the border of qualifying at 60%.  Last year we did not qualify, but we get a new chance each year. 

    You only need to complete one form per family for all children in NYC Public School. We ask for 100% of our families to complete the form so that we have a chance to qualify for next year. It is almost one million dollars in funding.  Please include all financial information and add all family members living in the household.  If you have a high income and are sure you would not qualify - please complete the form anyway - you have an option to check off that you do not qualify/will not be providing financial information.  If you have any questions on this form, please contact Ms. Sheri at melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov. Thanks!

  • P-EBT Food Benefits for 2020/21 School Year

     

    The Continuing Appropriations Act of 2021 and Other Extensions Act reauthorized the payment of P-EBT food benefits to households with children who would have received free school lunches under the National School Lunch Act, if not for a reduction in in-person learning due to the pandemic. These temporary food benefits are being provided to help cover the cost of meals children would have otherwise received at school during the 2020-21 academic year. 

     

    Because New York City is a universal school lunch district, all public school families regardless of income will receive the benefits! Families will soon receive up to $1,320 in food benefits to help cover the cost of missed school meals while students learned remotely during the COVID pandemic. You do not (and cannot) apply for Pandemic EBT food benefits. P-EBT food benefits will automatically be issued to eligible children. Read more about it on the NY State announcement and Chalkbeat.

  • Please read if you have borrowed devices from PS 102/DOE

    June 2021

    Dear PS 102 Parents and Families,

    Here is some information regarding loaned devices:

    School Based-Devices (asset tag starting with DOE-AP or DOE- LN)

    Who should return the school based devices?

    School-owned devices that were loaned to students should be returned by any student changing schools within the DOE or leaving the DOE for any reason. This includes students going from elementary to middle school. These devices have an asset tag sticker on the back of the device that starts with AP or LN. Note: All laptops are considered school-based devices.

    Who can hold on to the devices?

    Students who will remain at PS 102 may hold onto school-based devices for the summer. Students may use the device for Summer Rising, summer school programming and other enrichment opportunities.

    Centrally Loaned Devices (devices that were distributed by the DOE for remote/blended learning- asset tag on the back starts with COV- R2CV-. ACB-)

    Who should return the devices?

    Students leaving the DOE - because of discharge/separation from a DOE school or program - need to return their centrally-loaned iPads so that the schools can redistribute the devices to current students. These devices have an asset tag on the back starting with DOE-COV-, R2CV-, and ACB-.

    Who can hold on to the devices?

    All other students, even those returning to the DOE but at a different school, keep the DOE-issued internet-enabled iPad devices over the summer to encourage and enable them to participate in Summer Rising, summer school programming and other enrichment opportunities. Students in grade 5 who will enter a DOE middle school in the fall should keep their devices over the summer and bring them to the school they are attending for grade 6.

    When can the devices be returned?

    Beginning on June 17, devices can be returned any day from Monday-Friday from 8:15am-9:15am or 1:15pm-2:15pm in the PS 102 lobby. Please be sure to bring the device in its case and the charger (charging brick and cord).

    If you are unable to return the device during these times, please contact Margaret Sheri at MElliotSheri@schools.nyc.gov to schedule an appointment.

  • Book Recommendation by Kemal 5-426

    The book, The Twits is by Roald Dahl. It is about mean Mr. and Mrs. Twit. They have 4 monkeys locked up in a cage, and the monkeys had to do everything upside down. The Twits also caught birds to be roasted in pies. Since the monkeys didn't speak English and the birds spoke English, the monkeys could not warn the birds. But one day, a bird that spoke both languages comes along and passed on the warning. So, the Twits decided to buy guns. While the Twits were away, the birds freed the monkeys and they all decided to turn the Twits upside down too! They did this by gluing everything that the Twits owned to the ceiling. This made the Twits think that if they stood in their heads, their world would "go right-side-up." But as they had been walking home, one of the birds had painted the Twits' head with glue. So when they went upside down, they got glued to the floor!
    I really like this book because it, like all Roald Dahl books, is hilarious and detailed. I would recommend this book especially for younger kids because it is easy to read and understand what's going on in the story.
    THE END
