Students and families, please also complete the NYCDOE survey to give us and the city feedback on how you are experiencing remote schooling during the pandemic. This is VERY IMPORTANT and very helpful information to get as we plan for September.

Important message about school reopening: While there is no word on when schools will reopen for in-person learning, we have been asked to remind you that students will not be able to attend in-person learning without a signed Consent form for COVID-19 student testing on file. A staff member will ask you if you consent to testing and help you put that on file with the DOE.
