Dear PS107 Families,
Last Friday, after an announcement that the 7-day average infection rate had quickly climbed to 2.83%, we began to prepare for all-remote instruction. Luckily, the infection rate dropped over the weekend, but it seems increasingly likely that we will be in full-remote instruction at some point in the near future. Should this happen, we want to make sure all of our students have what they need to make a smooth and seamless transition.
Starting with Cohort B on Friday, teachers had their students put all of their personal learning materials such as workbooks, notebooks and folders, into their backpacks. Today they will do the same with Cohort A. Students should keep all of their materials in their backpacks until further notice. This will ensure that they have everything needed to continue learning, remotely or in-person.
For the time being, please have your child keep all materials in his/her backpack to prevent items from being left at home on in-person school days.
With the new Blended Learning cycle scheduled to begin at the end of November, we know those of you who have made a request to move your child from remote to in-person learning are wondering how things will work if we are in full remote learning. We recommend having your child remain in his/her current remote classrooms until we return to in-person learning to reduce the number of transitions for your child. However, we understand there may be other factors involved. If you have made a request for in-person learning, we will reach out to you later this week.
Finally, to ensure your child has a dedicated electronic device for remote learning, please use this form to request one from the DOE:
Please let me know if you have any questions.
