    June 18, 2021

    Dear Families,

    We made it!

    Despite a pandemic that turned our lives upside down, we are at the finish line of this school year. I want to take
    this moment to honor and celebrate all that our families and students have accomplished during
    this difficult year and a half. We are ending this school year strong because of you. Because you and your
    children made education a priority.

    There is a quote from my favorite author, Maya Angelou, which speaks to the strength and resilience of the
    human spirit. In an essay in her 2009 book Letter to My Daughter, Angelou wrote: “You may not control all the
    events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

    This sentiment, of rising in the face of adversity, describes our amazing students and families, who persisted
    despite untold challenges. Together, you:
     Adapted to learning from home, and in some cases returning to buildings after months away. 
     Stayed focused on schoolwork. 
     Learned a new way of connecting with family members and friends.
     Made the most of every single day, whether studying remotely or coming to school with masks on. 

    You also raised your voices when you saw terrible acts of violence towards your neighbors and made it clear
    that you would not tolerate anti-Black violence, anti-Semitism, anti-Asian violence, Islamophobia, xenophobia,
    homophobia, or any acts of bias or discrimination that cause harm every day. You have stood in solidarity with
    your communities—because that’s what New Yorkers do.

    In that same spirit of solidarity, I want to call your attention to an important date, June 19,
    which commemorates Juneteenth and the end of slavery in the United States. As an educator, I believe that it’s
    critical to teach our students about the ongoing legacy of slavery in both the context of Black history and
    American history at large. And now Juneteenth will enter the history books for another reason: this week,
    President Biden signed legislation making June 19 a federal holiday. This year, Juneteenth occurs as we
    continue to reckon with systemic racism, and the harm and hurt it causes our neighbors, fellow New Yorkers,
    and fellow Americans. I think about the ways the COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on
    people of color. I think about our nation’s first true reckoning with the Tulsa Massacre, 100 years later. And I
    think about all the work we must do to create equity in all our schools.

    If you want to learn more about Juneteenth and its significance to New Yorkers and Black Americans,
    please visit schools.nyc.gov/Juneteenth to watch our video and find resources for learning and thinking about
    this important day.

    As your Chancellor, it’s my job to ensure that our one million students learn to think critically and have the
    skills to succeed in a world we adults cannot even imagine. Honestly, I am awed by you. You and
    your children taught us so much this year—from how to use your voice to create change to how to stay strong
    when times get tough. How to adapt to the things we cannot control, and how to follow Maya Angelou’s lead
    and not be reduced by them. 

    Although I have been in this role for less than four months, I am certain of one thing: Together, there is nothing
    we cannot achieve. If we made it through the last year and a half, we will be ready to rock in September.
    In advance of in-person learning for all students this fall, I encourage everyone ages 12 and older to get
    vaccinated for COVID-19! It’s the best way to keep our communities and city safe. You can make an
    appointment for yourself and your child by visiting vaccinefinder.nyc.gov.

    Being an educator for more than 20 years, I also cannot help but close with an assignment (don’t worry, there
    won’t be a test). I want you and your children to celebrate all that you have achieved this year. I hope you
    spend a lot of time together, hug often, have new experiences, find reasons to laugh. And recharge your
    batteries.

    We made it this far together, and I cannot wait to see what we do this fall.
    In partnership,

    Meisha Porter
    New York City Schools Chancellor

  • 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.

    COVID-19 Vaccines for Children Ages 12 and Older
    We are excited to share that all New Yorkers age 12 and older are now eligible to
    receive the COVID-19 vaccine. If you have a child who is at least 12 years old, the
    Department of Health and Mental Hygiene strongly encourages you to make a
    vaccination appointment for them as soon as possible by visiting
    vaccinefinder.nyc.gov. You can also call 877-VAX-4-NYC (877-829-4692) for help
    making an appointment at a City-run vaccination site. Many sites now have walk-in
    appointments.

    Vaccination is the most important step you can take to protect you and your family from
    COVID-19. It is especially important for those with an underlying health condition that
    increases the risk of severe COVID-19 illness, such as asthma, obesity, or diabetes.
    The same is true for people who live with someone 65 or older or with an underlying
    health condition that increases the risk of severe COVID-19 illness. Vaccination is free
    and available regardless of immigration status.

    In the U.S., the Pfizer vaccine is currently the only vaccine authorized by the Food and
    Drug Administration for children ages 12 to 17. The Pfizer vaccine has been shown to
    be very safe and effective at protecting people from severe COVID-19 illness,
    hospitalization, and death. Your child cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine.
    To find a site offering the Pfizer vaccine, make an appointment, or locate a walk-in
    site, visit vaccinefinder.nyc.gov. You can also check with your
    child’s healthcare provider to see if they are offering the Pfizer vaccine.

    Chancellor Family Engagement Forums
    Chancellor Meisha Porter has launched a five-borough family engagement tour to hear
    directly from school communities about their top priorities for next school
    year. These virtual forums are an opportunity for families, teachers, school
    administrators, and staff to provide Department of Education leadership with their
    thoughts on the types of resources and support they need as we move towards a full
    reopening in September.
    The remaining three forums will be held from 6:30–8:00 p.m. on these dates:
    Queens—Thursday, May 27
    Brooklyn—Monday, June 7
    Bronx—Wednesday, June 9
    How to register:
    Families can register for the forums at learndoe.org/chancellor. When
    you register, you will be asked if you want to ask a question or provide a comment
    during the event about topics, including health and safety, special education, fall 2021
    school reopening, social-emotional learning, and more.
    Each forum will be recorded and posted at learndoe.org/chancellor so you may access
    them at any time. Interpretation services will be available at every forum.

    Update on Regents Exams
    We want to remind families of high school students that the New York State
    Regents exams will be administered in person from June 17–24 for English Language
    Arts, Living Environment, Physical Setting/Earth Science, and Algebra I. All other
    subject exams have been cancelled for June, as well as all August Regents exams.
    Due to these cancellations, certain students are eligible for Regents exam waivers,
    including for the four exams still being offered in June. Your child’s school will contact
    you to share information about the waivers and determine your interest
    in having your child participate in the Regents exams. Students receiving fully remote
    instruction are not expected to come to school to take the Regents; however, if they
    would like to participate, they may attend the in-person administration. 

    Halal Meal Expansion
    We are pleased to announce that an additional 11 schools are being certified to
    serve halal take-out meals, for a total of 43 schools citywide. The additional schools
    serve students and members of the public in Spanish Harlem, Harlem, Jamaica,
    Jackson Heights, and Soundview. A full list of schools serving halal meals is available
    at schools.nyc.gov/FreeMeals.
    This expansion reflects the DOE’s commitment to respecting the religious identity of all
    students and to ensuring that children can eat consistent with their dietary needs. All
    the menus were reviewed by a panel of imams. Each school offering the halal
    options was inspected and certified by imams, and kitchen staff were trained to prepare
    food in compliance with halal rules.
    This initiative was launched in partnership with the New York City Council to provide
    meals in the schools and neighborhoods with high demand for halal meals.

    School Survey Reminder
    The 15th annual NYC School Survey is underway! We encourage all families
    and teachers in grades 3K through 12, and students in grades 6–
    12 to visit nycschoolsurvey.org by June 11 to share your thoughts on your
    school experience this year. Make your voice heard to help make your school a better
    place to learn!

  • Please read letter from Chancellor Porter on reopening in September 2021 - May 24

    May 24, 2021

    Dear Families,

    First, thank you. I know the past year has required resiliency, determination, flexibility, and sacrifices from all of
    us, and from you in particular. You have taken on new roles that many of you never imagined you’d have to take
    on, and have balanced so much while coping with losses and the many life challenges that COVID-19 brought
    to us over the past year.

    As we close out this school year, I am looking forward to the opportunity that lies before us to reimagine what
    school is and means for your children. We know that we have to welcome our students back to a warm,
    welcoming, and affirming learning environment that challenges them academically while lifting them up when
    they need support.

    As our schools work hard on re-imagining how we educate our children, I am excited to share with you our reopening
    plans for fall 2021. Based on available health indicators, we will return to full-time, in-person learning
    this September. This means that all students in grades 3-K through 12 will be learning in-person this fall.

    All teachers and staff will also be returning to in-person instruction this fall. We are very grateful for the
    dedication of all our principals, teachers and school staff and recognize the hard work they have done during this
    challenging year, and we’re excited for your children to re-connect with their beloved teachers and school staff, in
    addition to their peers, this fall.

    As we prepare for your children, as well as teachers and staff, to return to schools, we will continue our
    commitment to prioritize health and safety first. With a current rolling 7-day COVID positivity rate of 0.16% and
    a consistently low transmission rate, our schools have a proven track record of being safe. We will meet whatever
    the CDC social distancing requirements are in September, and we expect that the city’s continuously improving
    health metrics may allow for more flexibility by the fall. Finally, in our commitment to keep health and safety a
    top priority, we plan to adhere to the many health and safety measures we had in place this past school year,
    including the following:

     Masks will continue to be a requirement in all of our school buildings
     Individuals with COVID-19 symptoms will continue to be required to stay at home
     Students, teachers and staff will continue to complete the daily health screener at home
     Every school building will continue to have a nurse
     Every classroom will have working ventilation systems
     On-site COVID-19 testing will continue in school buildings as recommended by the latest health
    guidance
     The Situation Room will continue to support schools with next steps if there are positive cases

    We know that many of our students have not attended school in-person since March of 2020, and that returning
    to school in-person this fall will be an adjustment. We promise to do everything we can to welcome your children
    back and provide the supports needed to ensure a positive homecoming. We’ve already made investments to hire
    more teachers and social workers, and will have academic and social-emotional learning programs available to
    support our students. Here are some ways that we are supporting with the transition now, and we encourage you
    and your children to participate:

    Chancellor’s Borough-Wide Family Forums: I am hosting borough-wide family town halls to hear more from
    you about this fall, and how we can use our resources to ensure a positive homecoming for your children and
    provide an enriching and challenging academic experience that integrates social-emotional learning. To learn
    more and register, please visit us here:
    https://www.schools.nyc.gov/get-involved/families/familyempowerment/chancellor-porter-s-family-forums

    School Open Houses: Starting in June and throughout the summer, every school will host open houses for
    families to visit, take a tour, and learn about the health and safety precautions in place that have kept our schools
    safe over the last year. Your child’s school will be in touch with you about when these will be scheduled, and we
    encourage you to participate to learn more.

    Summer Rising: In partnership with the Department of Youth and Community Development, we are so excited
    to provide an enriching, fun and joyful summer camp experience for any interested student. We encourage your
    child to join us - to be welcomed back into their school communities, re-connect with teachers and staff, and get
    ready for fall while having fun! Families can sign up here: https://discoverdycd.dycdconnect.nyc/home

    Thank you for your partnership, your engagement, and your dedication to your children’s education over the last
    year. I am in awe of how our communities came together to lift each other up to ensure our children had the best
    experience possible despite enormous challenges. I am looking forward to partnering with you, learning from
    you, and leveraging all we‘ve done together over the last year to create a new normal starting in September - one
    that is warm and welcoming, affirming and enriching, and exciting and challenging - for each one of your
    children.

    In partnership,
    Meisha Porter
    New York City Schools Chancellor

  • Please read letter from our Chancellor on Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and the NYC School Survey - May 12

    For translation see: schools.nyc.gov/messagesforfamilies

    May 12, 2021

    Dear Families,

    As you may know, May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month. This is the time when we celebrate the
    culture, history, and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States. I am
    always humbled when I think about the role Asian and Pacific Americans played in the formation of this city
    and country. From building the first transcontinental railroad to fighting for America throughout the different
    wars, these communities have deep roots throughout our nation. And they have made important contributions as
    small business owners, teachers, doctors, artists, scientists, in technology fields, and in so many other ways.

    As Chancellor, it is important to me that our students and educators explore the rich traditions and achievements
    of people of AAPI heritage. It’s also important to have the hard discussions about the horrific rise in violence
    against our fellow AAPI New Yorkers and Americans. In schools, we are supporting this by providing
    curriculum resources accessible to educators in all grades. And at every turn, we must reinforce that there is no
    room for discrimination of any kind in New York City’s public schools. To our AAPI students, staff, and
    families: The Department of Education stands in solidarity with you. We will continue to honor your diverse
    and powerful voices.

    For some amazing resources that are great for discussions at home with your children, visit
    schools.nyc.gov/togetherforjustice. In addition, your children can access a collection of hundreds of e-books
    and audiobooks honoring the contributions Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans have made to the
    lives and culture of the United States. These books are available through the Sora app; students can log in at
    soraapp.com/welcome/login/310229 using their DOE credentials.

    I want to share one more important link with you: the link to our 15th annual NYC School Survey,
    which launched this week! I encourage all families and teachers in grades 3K through 12, and students in
    grades 6-12, to visit nycschoolsurvey.org by June 11 to share your thoughts on your school experience this
    year. Tell us what you think about student well-being and engagement, communication from your
    school, culturally responsive education, how your school has supported you, and teaching and learning. Your
    school will use your feedback to think about the learning environment and work with all members of the school
    community to make the school a better place to learn. 

    As always, I am grateful for you and how you support your children every step of the way. Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Meisha Porter
    New York City Schools Chancellor

Covid-19 Notices

  • Please read attached letter - Confirmed Case of Covid 19 - March 16

    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).

  • Garden Group Meetings

    We are back!

    Parents will work together each Friday morning (unless it is raining) from 9:00 - 10:30ish to maintain the garden. "Meetings" are informal - but we do use this time to make plans for the garden season and future programming.  We will be wearing masks.  Gloves are available.  These sessions are cancelled in the event of rain.  If they are cancelled for any other reason, I will post on www.ps102.org as early as possible.   Hope to see you soon!

    If you are not getting emails about the garden and would like to -- please ask me to add you to the list: melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov.

    Book of the Month
  • 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.
