*There will be a variety of breaks throughout the day to limit student “screen time.” You can view a sample schedule here.
Why is campus closed on Wednesday?
Campus is closed on Wednesday for all faculty, staff, and students in order to deep clean and sanitize the space. For faculty and staff, this time is used for valuable professional development to set students up for success in both models. For students, we will offer Grade-Level Gathering across all three grade levels for students to build relationships with students outside of their cohorts, and Zoom office hours and SETSS for students for academic support.
Is it possible to change from the remote-ony model to the hybrid model? What about changing from the Hybrid-model to the remote model?
Yes, with some limitations. Please refer to the Hybrid Reopening page for more information!
Students who are participating in the remote-only program will be able to join the hybrid-model and begin in-person classes but only at set times throughout the fall such as the end of the first quarter (end of October) and the end of the semester (mid-January). This is because more students joining the hybrid model will require us to re-group in-person student cohorts and we cannot do that on a rolling basis.
Will uniforms be required for hybrid and remote-only models?
Our uniform policy will remain the same with that caveat that we strongly suggest students wear their uniforms during remote learning classes to encourage consistency.
Will 6th Grade have busing?
To best support the health and safety of our community, Brooklyn Prospect will not offer student busing through the NYCDOE Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT) this school year, except for students requiring accommodations in their individualized education plans (IEPs) or with other such required accommodations.
Students who meet OPT requirements will be eligible to receive MetroCards in lieu of student busing. If you have questions regarding transportation, please email the Middle School Office at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
My student will be absent or will need to be picked up early. Who should I tell?
Email your middle school program coordinators at email@example.com. You should also email your student's advisor to let them know. Students being picked up early will receive a pass to dismiss from class at the appropriate time. You can also call the office at (347) 889-7041 x5002.
How do I access my Teacherease account?

What is the WTMS Dress Code?

Bottoms - black, grey or khaki bottoms worn at the waist. Leggings, sweatpants and athletic pants, shorts or skirts are fine.

Students may wear special issue BPCS spirit t-shirts or Junior Honor Society t-shirts any day of the week.
A BPCS top must be worn everyday under any sweater or sweatshirt.
Undergarments cannot be visible through or outside of clothing.
Hoods and hats may NOT be worn inside the building; head covering as part of a religious belief or cultural expression is allowed.
