Information on Potential Inclement Weather Closures
As we head into winter, it’s likely we will have inclement weather that in an ordinary year would cause all schools to close for teaching and learning. This year, if a snowstorm or other weather demands that school buildings close, all schools will still conduct remote learning on that day. All students will be expected to log on and engage with their work from home as they do on other days when they learn remotely. Middle school students who are already learning remotely every day are expected to attend school remotely, regardless of the weather.

School Building Re-opening
The school building re-opened for in-person instruction for students in grades Pre-K to 5 on Monday, December 7, 2020 (Week 3).
Middle school students will remain remote until further notice.
In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing by the first day your child returns to their school building.
Submitting consent have your child tested for COVID-19 in school is quick and easy. If you have already submitted consent, we encourage you to do so again to ensure your student has the latest form on file. There are two easy ways to submit:
Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA)
If you already have a NYCSA account linked to your student(s): Log in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your student.
If you do not already have a NYCSA account: You can create one right away! Contact Kathy Burgos to obtain a creation code. If you have an account creation code from your school, you can create a full account in approximately five minutes, and then provide consent as described above. If you do not have an account creation code from your school, you can still provide your consent right away by clicking “Manage Consent” under “COVID-19 Testing” and filling out your and your child’s information to provide consent.
Visit schools.nyc.gov/school-year-20-21/return-to-school-2020/health-and-safety/covid-19-testing to print and sign the form and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they are back in the school building.

Learning Bridges Program
As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and early childhood programs will operate on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students will have some school days in person, and some school days remotely. Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning.
The Learning Bridges programs will:
Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners
Provide opportunities for children to connect to their remote learning activities
Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities
Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools
You can complete this survey even if you do not yet know your child’s school schedule. The survey is meant to assess interest; this is not a formal application. Programs will become available on a rolling basis beginning at the start of school. You can also call 311 for support in completing the survey.
