Dear Parents,

Please note that the fall Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, November 3, 2022. The afternoon conference will be from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm and the evening conference from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, all parent teacher conferences are held virtually. Your child’s teacher will schedule the appointment with you and provide you with the log on information. Please keep your appointment as scheduled.

Report cards will be delivered on Wednesday, November 2. An online copy of the report card may also be viewed in your NYC School Account. Due to lack of interpreters of different languages, please do your best to find an interpreter for yourself if you do not speak English.

The students will be provided with hot lunches on November 3 and they will be dismissed at 11:50 AM. Bus children will also leave at 11:50 AM. Please pick up your child on time. Due to the pandemic, we will not have the open school week this year.

The conferences are a valuable opportunity for you to discuss, with your child’s teacher, your child’s academic progress as well as their social emotional growth. We look forward to seeing all of you at our virtual parent teacher conferences on Thursday, November 3!

Sincerely,

Tony Wu, Principal

Dear Parents,

Please review the new health policy regarding Covid 19:

Vaccination Requirements:

  • Vaccination is still required for all visitors entering school buildings

    • At the beginning of the school year and as needed, families of birth to 5 children (3-K/Pre-K, Infants and Toddlers) are able to enter the program as they may need additional transitional support. Once children are more comfortable it is strongly recommended that family access is limited to only necessary situations.

  • Vaccination is still required for all DOE employees

  • Vaccination is still required for other individuals who work in DOE buildings

  • Stay home if sick: Students and staff should stay home if they show any symptoms of COVID-19 or other illnesses and get tested for COVID-19.

  • Isolate if COVID-19 positive: Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for 5 days and can return to school on day 6 if they have no symptoms or symptoms are improving. The should wear a mask until day 10 after symptom onset or date of positive test, whichever is earlier. Masks may be removed during this period if the person has received two negative rapid tests 48 hours apart.

  • Get tested if exposed to COVID-19: Students and staff who are exposed to COVID-19 should get tested.

    • These individuals should receive home tests from their school and take two tests, at least 24 hours apart on day 4 and day 5 of their exposure. All exposed individuals should monitor for fever and other COVID-19 symptoms for 10 days after their exposure. If symptoms begin, they should not attend school and should isolate and get tested for COVID-19 again right away.

Testing:

  • Starting the first day of school, schools will offer home test kits to those with a potential in-school exposure and those with symptoms

  • In addition, each staff and student will receive 4 tests per month to take home. These tests can be used by school families for testing due to symptoms, exposures, high-risk activity (such as travel and large gatherings), and can give staff and students immediate results.

Masking- Face coverings are strongly recommended to be worn when indoors.

Masks will be made available at the school for all those who need/want them.

    • Students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, should wear a mask when:

      • Returning to school on the sixth day after testing positive for COVID-19, through day 10 after symptom onset or date of positive test, whichever is earlier, including when traveling on a school bus. Masks may be removed during this period if the person has received two negative rapid tests 48 hours apart.

      • Entering the school medical room, nurse’s office, or school-based health center.

      • Exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 at school.

      • Children under the age of 2 should not wear masks at any time.

    • Students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, are also strongly recommended to wear a mask:

      • When they were exposed to someone with COVID-19, whether the exposure occurred in school or outside of school. The person should wear a mask for 10 days after their last day of exposure and get tested at least 24 hours apart on day 4 and day 5 of their exposure.

      • When they are moderately-to-severely immunocompromised, and masking is recommended by their healthcare provider.

      • In crowded indoor settings

Thank you,

Tony Wu, Principal
