  • Update for Families on Covid-19 School Closure Protocols

    April 9, 2021

    Dear Families,

    No matter what, health and safety always come first in our schools. The New York City
    Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the New York City
    Department of Education (DOE) have worked together throughout the COVID-19
    pandemic to protect the health of our school communities. We are proud that this
    partnership has helped make New York City public school buildings some of the safest
    places in the city.

    As the pandemic has evolved, we have updated our protocols to ensure a safe,
    supportive learning experience for every student. Yesterday, following guidance from
    the CDC and detailed review of the scientific literature, we announced changes to our
    COVID-19 school building closure policies to minimize disruptions to in-person learning
    while maintaining our steadfast commitment to health and safety.

    This new policy is among the many practices we have put in place to protect our school
    communities, including encouraging vaccinations for all eligible New Yorkers. At least
    65,000 school staff members have already been vaccinated, providing a critically
    important layer of protection. All New Yorkers age 16 and up are now eligible to receive
    the COVID-19 vaccination, and we urge you to learn more and make an appointment at
    nyc.gov/vaccinefinder.

    Here is what you need to know about the new closure policy:

    When will a school close?

    Beginning Monday, April 12, 2021, a school will only close if there are 4 or more
    confirmed COVID-19 cases from 4 different classrooms during a 7-day period, and the
    cases are traced to exposure inside the school as determined by the investigating team.

    Many DOE buildings have more than one school within them. Any other schools in the
    same building will not close unless they have a separate set of 4 or more cases from 4
    different classrooms traced to exposure inside the school, or there is close interaction
    between the schools as determined by the investigating team.

    What if there are 2 or 3 cases in a school?
    If 2 or 3 positive cases in different classrooms are identified within a school over a 7-day
    period, the affected classrooms will switch to remote learning for 10 days. The rest of
    the school will remain open for in-person learning.

    Additionally, random testing for COVID-19 at the school will immediately be increased to
    include 40% of a school’s in-person population during the following week. Please note
    that individuals who have been vaccinated will be included in testing as of now.
    What if there is 1 case in a school?

    When a school has a single confirmed case, the affected classroom will switch to
    remote learning for a period of 10 days, just as they do now. Only unvaccinated
    students or staff in the affected classroom(s) will need to quarantine.

    Continuing to close classrooms in response to a case of COVID-19, and increasing
    testing in the event of 2 or 3 cases, allows us to keep school communities safe, while
    avoiding closures of the whole school. We know how much continuity matters for students,
    staff, and families, and this approach allows for that while staying consistent
    with CDC guidance. It is also responsive to the many families and staff who have
    experienced multiple building closures this school year — and the ensuing disruption it
    can cause. Our goal is safety and stability for all our families.

    As always, we are grateful to you and your children for your patience and persistence
    during this challenging school year.

    Sincerely,
    Meisha Porter
    Chancellor Commissioner

    Please read the Update Letter from Schools Chancellor Porter issued today 3/22/21

    March 22, 2021

    Dear Families,

    We just reopened high school buildings for in-person learning for the first time since November 2020, and I have
    to say that the joy on our students’ faces as they entered their school buildings was amazing. We are thrilled to
    see students of all ages safely learning in physical classrooms.

    That is why I am very pleased to let you know that all our remote families will now have one more opportunity
    to transition to blended learning this school year. This means that if your child is currently learning remotely
    every day, they will be able to opt in to learning in person in the school building at least part of the week for
    the remainder of the school year. We will make every effort to provide as many days of in-person learning as
    possible.

    When and How to Opt In to Blended Learning
     Beginning this Wednesday, March 24, you can visit the Learning Preference Survey
    at https://www.nycenet.edu/surveys/learningpreference to select blended learning for your child.
     Families can also call 311.
     You can change to blended learning until Wednesday, April 7.
    When Your Student Can Return to the School Building
     Students in district 3-K, Pre-K, and grades K-5, including students in District 75, who opt into
    blended learning during this opt-in window will return to buildings in April.
     Students in grades 6-12 who opt into blended learning during this opt-in window will return at a later
    date, and we will communicate more details as soon as possible.
     Updates will be posted at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus.

    Requirements for Returning to the School Building
    Please note that if you select blended learning for your child, you must submit the consent form for random
    COVID-19 testing by the first day your child begins in-person learning. You can submit your consent for testing
    one of two ways:

     Through your New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) under ‘Manage Account’, or
     Complete and sign the consent form available here and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they
    are back in the school building.

    Families that select blended learning are expected to have their child attend in person on days they are scheduled
    to do so.

    Please note that if your child is currently learning fully remotely and you do not complete the survey indicating
    a preference for blended learning, your student(s) will remain fully remote.

    We are able to offer this additional chance for fully remote students to opt in to learning in buildings because
    the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its guidance, allowing us to safely
    accommodate more students in a classroom. As always, our focus is on the health and safety of your children, the
    dedicated staff who serve them, and you—their family. That has been our priority since day one, and will continue
    to guide everything we do.Thanks to our strong health and safety practices—including wearing masks, hand hygiene, weekly random testing
    for COVID-19, physical distancing, and more—our school buildings are among the safest places in the whole
    city.

    Thank you, as always, for your faith and partnership. We continue to show the nation what is possible in terms of
    safely educating our one million students—and we couldn’t do it without you. I thank you for your
    commitment and, in turn, I promise you that our commitment to your child is unwavering.

    Sincerely,
    Meisha Porter

  • Please read the first Family Letter from NYC's new Schools Chancellor, Meisha Porter

    March 19, 2021

    Dear Families,

    This was my first week as your new Chancellor, and I couldn’t be more excited to take on this role. Not only
    because I am a New Yorker born and bred, but because education is in my blood. Both my mom and auntie were
    teachers and I became a New York City public school English teacher because of them, and the amazing educators
    I had as a student myself growing up in Queens.

    Since I started at the DOE 21 years ago, I have also worked as an assistant principal, and then principal. More
    recently, I served our school communities as a superintendent and Bronx executive superintendent. And now it is
    my honor and privilege to lead our schools citywide. I have spent much of this week seeing our
    brilliant students and educators from every borough in action, in-person and remotely. I saw pre-k students learn
    about the water cycle, joined sixth graders in learning ratios by mixing just the right ratio of food coloring into
    frosting, and joined seventh-graders in sharing special objects that reveal something about who we are. Despite
    all the changes and challenges we’ve faced this past year, our school communities are still joyful, vibrant places
    of learning.

    As I reflect on this week’s visits, I am also heartened by the beautiful diversity of our classrooms, communities,
    and our City as a whole. In our schools, “respect for all” is not just a slogan, but a way of life. We value every
    student, staff member, and family for who they are. We ensure everyone feels welcomed. This is at our very
    core.

    But the horrific anti-Asian hate crimes we’ve been seeing citywide and this week in Atlanta make it clear that we
    must work harder to end systemic racism. Justice and inclusivity have been pillars of my career as an educator.
    As Chancellor, I promise to continue to advance equity and dismantle any biases in our school system. And I want
    to make it clear: there is no room for racism or discrimination of any kind at the Department of Education or in
    any of our schools. Just this week, we provided our educators with updated resources to combat hate crimes in
    our schools and provide our students with social and emotional supports. You can find resources for discussing
    racism and hate crimes with your children at schools.nyc.gov/togetherforjustice.

    Creating environments that encourage all students to be who they are will be on my mind on March 22, when all
    our public high schools will begin welcoming students back to in-person and blended learning. Like elementary
    and middle schools, as well as our District 75 programs, high schools will follow the strong practices we have
    established to help keep school communities healthy and safe. This includes weekly random testing of students
    and staff for COVID-19, physical distancing, masks, and nightly deep cleaning. In the meantime, I’m excited
    about this important milestone in the city’s recovery. And I’m proud to lead a school system that has set the
    standard for the nation in reopening efforts.

    This is such a hopeful and historic time for our schools and our city, and I want to thank you for all you have done
    to support our students and schools. In the coming weeks, there will be opportunities for us to meet
    and talk. I promise to hear and include your voices as we finish out this school year and plan for the next.

    Let’s go. Let’s do this. We’re ready.

    Sincerely,

    Meisha Porter

    4/16/2021 2:12 PM

    Subject: Confirmed Case of COVID-19: Close Contacts Quarantined

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

    The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the NYC Test + Trace Corps (T2) have determined that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19, and may have exposed others while at school.

    Below you will find guidance on next steps that will help keep you, your child, and our school community healthy and safe. The information below reflects the expertise of DOHMH, T2, and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

    What Happens Now?

    • All students and staff in the affected room(s) with the individual who tested positive are considered “close contacts,” and have been notified of the need to quarantine for 10 days from their last contact with the person who tested positive. These students and staff will transition to fully remote teaching and learning for this period.
    • T2 and DOHMH will complete their investigation to identify and notify any other close contacts in the building, who will also need to quarantine for 10 days.
    • Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.
    • All areas visited by the person with COVID-19 will be deep cleaned, disinfected, and reopened.
    • If your child is feeling sick, keep them at home.

    How do we stay healthy?

    Please remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:  

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).
    2. Practice social distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household.
    3. Wear a face covering to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
    4. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.

    How can I stay updated?

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa.

  • 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
