OPT IN TO BLENDED LEARNING
March 22, 2021
We just reopened high school buildings for in-person learning for the first time since November 2020, and I have to say that the joy on our students’ faces as they entered their school buildings was amazing. We are thrilled to see students of all ages safely learning in physical classrooms.
That is why I am very pleased to let you know that all our remote families will now have one more opportunity to transition to blended learning this school year. This means that if your child is currently learning remotely every day, they will be able to opt in to learning in person in the school building at least part of the week for the remainder of the school year. We will make every effort to provide as many days of in-person learning as possible.
When and How to Opt In to Blended Learning
Beginning this Wednesday, March 24, you can visit the Learning Preference Survey at to select blended learning for your child. Families can also call 311.
You can change to blended learning until Wednesday, April 7.

PROPOSED OPENING AND CO-LOCATION OF A NEW SITE
February 26, 2021
Dear P.S. Q004 Families,
I am writing to share that the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) has posted a proposal to open and co-locate a new elementary site of P.S. Q004 (75Q004) in building Q070, to be called P004Q@Q070, beginning in the 2021-2022 school year. Building Q070 is located at 30-44 43rd Street, Queens, NY 11103 in Community School District 30. A co-location means that two or more schools are located in the same building and may share common spaces, such as auditoriums, gymnasiums, libraries, and cafeterias. This proposal must be voted on and approved by the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP) prior to implementation.
NYCDOE does not anticipate that, if approved, this proposal will impact any of the P.S. Q004 sites that your child(ren) currently attend(s).
CHANGE IN COVID-19 QUARANTINE PERIOD FROM 14 TO 10 DAYS
Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health, and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), the quarantine period for individuals exposed to confirmed COVID-19 cases has changed from 14 days to 10 days. Individuals with confirmed COVID-19 cases can end their quarantine after 10 days without a testing requirement, as long as no symptoms have been reported during the quarantine period. Current DOE heath policy will be updated and families will be informed of this change in the coming days.
Please note that effective January 3, 2021, the time frame for individuals exposed to confirmed COVID-19 cases and the resulting interventions, such as classroom closures and building closures, have also changed from 14 days to 10 days. Individuals, classrooms, and school building closures that were subject to a 14-day quarantine period prior to January 3, must complete the duration of their 14-day quarantine.
