November 3rd, 2020, Election Day, is a fully remote instructional day for all students. Therefore, related services should be provided remotely to all students scheduled to receive services on November 3rd. Regularly scheduled in-person services will be provided remotely on November 3rd, 2020.
BLENDED LEARNING OPT-IN
To best meet these objectives, the process outlined below will be the only opt-in window for families this school year, through the last day of the 2020-2021 school year. We believe that this best meets the needs of students, families, teachers, and school leaders as we establish strong routines and structures for learning. As such, the process for blended learning opt-in is as follows:
Monday, November 2 – Sunday, November 15: Blended Learning Opt-In Window for Families
Families requesting to change from 100% remote to blended learning should complete and submit the Learning Preference survey during this window.
Schools will be able to review individual students’ updated learning preference on a rolling basis during this window.
During this time, Superintendents, Executive Superintendents and Central DOE will begin supporting schools to ensure as many students as possible are accommodated for blended learning.
Weeks of November 30 - Group A & December 7 - Group B: Students Begin In-Person Learning
We will also be sharing this information widely with families and we ask that you please share the information with families as well. Updates can be found at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-year-20-21/return-to-school-2020.

Programming Model 4A
Two in-person groups (Group A & Group B), one remote group (Group D). Each in-person group (Group A & Group B) receives a week of in-person instruction every other week with remote learning during the non-attending weeks.
Group D (every day remote) group will consist of students who opt out of in-person instruction.
"Due to the increasing numbers of students opting for remote learning in the recent days, changes are being made. Student groupings and teacher assignments may be changed to ensure all students will be assigned the proper grouping/teacher and to best ensure maximum social distancing and safety. Your patience and flexibility in these uncertain times are greatly appreciated. I understand the frustration this may cause some of you. Please know that the administration is working around the clock to organize and set up the 2020-2021 school year for all students - blended and remote. Once groupings are reorganized, we will notify you of your child's grouping. Again, thank you for your cooperation and continued support.

LEARN AT HOME
The materials on the Learn at Home pages are designed to provide supplementary learning resources to students in the event that students may need to be home from school. We encourage you to use this time to continue your student’s learning while they are at home. To help students engage in educational material, we have shared the resources below for students in all grades, from Early Learn through elementary and middle school, and for high school. These materials do not replace what your child has been learning at school, but during this unusual time it is important that students continue to read, write, do social studies and science activities, and work on math problems.
