The NYC Department of Education has shared that given recent increases in transmission, we have reached a point in our City’s infection rate that requires all students to transition to remote learning. Beginning Thursday, November 19, all school buildings will be closed, and all learning will proceed remotely for all students, until further notice.
Please check your email for more specific information about the switch to our quarantine schedule at PS 39 and additional support information. You can also visit our Shift to Schoolwide Remote Only page on this website.
In response to recent news that NYC Public Schools may need to close school buildings due to rising COVID cases, here is the plan we have in place to communicate with you should the school building need to close:
This year school started nearly a month later than we usually would have as we had to ensure that protocols were in place prioritizing safety for staff and students to be in the building as well as the time needed to orient students on their hybrid in-person days, and students whether hybrid or fully remote with their remote classroom environments.
The first report cards for this year will be published on Friday, December 4, 2020. With that we have decided to move the date for Parent-Teacher Conferences from the DOE recommended date of Thursday, November 5, 2020, to Monday, December 7, 2020. This means that Thursday, November 5, will be a regular full day for PS 39's Group B.
Report cards will be available through your NYC Schools Account. We are reviewing the DOE's 2020-21 Grading Policy that was published a few days ago and we will share more once we have crafted our grading policy for this blended learning and hybrid/remote school year.
