Guidance for Blended and Remote Learning

Please see the blended & remote learning information below.

Blended Learning Schedule

We are starting the school year with a blended learning schedule. That means that your child will be in school some days and working from home some days. 

  • Cohort A will be in school on Tuesday, Thursday, and alternate Mondays with Cohort B.
  • Cohort B will be in school on Wednesday, Friday, and alternate Mondays with Cohort A. 
  • Families can opt for full remote teaching at any time. If you decide to do this please email Mrs. Keane at TKeane@schools.nyc.gov
  • The school day will run from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. 
  • Breakfast and Lunch: Grab-and-go meals will be available for breakfast and lunch each day, though students will also be permitted to bring their own lunch if preferred. Lunch will be in classrooms to minimize interaction between groups of students.
  • Bussing: DOE will provide school transportation, as required, to include all public, non-public, charter schools, students with special needs and students in temporary housing situations. Because of this unique situation, it may not be possible to provide transportation through a conventional mode such as a bus, and may require other modes to be employed to satisfy transportation needs, such as MetroCard.

How Blended Learning Works

Blended learning combines in-class instruction and at-home learning. This allows us to limit the number of students in the building each day for safe social distancing, while still ensuring that students can benefit from direct interaction with teachers and peers. 

  • During days in class, teachers will provide direct whole-class instruction and small-group instruction. These days will be used primarily to introduce new topics, provide small group and one-on-one instructional support, and conduct assessments to monitor student progress towards standards. 
  • Students will be assigned additional activities to work on independently for there at-home learning days. These activities will allow students to apply and practice what they learned in class. There may be a combination of technology-based learning activities and offline worksheets, projects, and writing assignments. At-home learning activities are an important part of the learning process and will be graded. 

Remote Learning Expectations

During blended or 100% remote learning, your child is expected to complete all assignments provided by the teacher. At the same time, we recognize that working independently at home is different and difficult for many students, so we want to provide flexibility. 

  • Students and families should check Google Classroom daily for important updates from their teachers. 
  • During 100% remote learning, your teacher may conduct live classes via Zoom. Check Google Classroom for your live class schedule.
  • When signing in for virtual classes or meetings, students are expected to be on time and ready to learn. We suggest signing in 5 minutes before class starts. Please try to reduce background noise and distractions as much as possible.
