Hoping everyone is enjoying the mid-winter break and is ready to get back to school tomorrow. A few reminders to help us safely transition:
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22 IS AN A COHORT DAY
We know that some families may have had exposure to COVID in one way or another during mid-winter break and have questions about how to proceed. Your emails will be read and responded to on Monday, February 22nd when school opens.
If there is any question about exposure do not send your child to school on Monday. Please wait until the NYC DOE has the opportunity to assess your particular set of circumstances. These are not decisions made by the school so we ask for your patience while we ask and receive answers/instructions for each affected family. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TRAVELLED OUT OF STATE
If you have travelled out of state for more than 24 hours you must adhere to the NY State Travel Guidelines which can be found here.

If your family has travelled out of state and will be quarantining, please email email@example.com with dates and other pertinent information.
SOCIAL DISTANCE AT ARRIVALS AND DISMISSALS
We are still in the midst of a pandemic and public health crisis so reminders to KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE from other families when arriving to school.
- Do not crowd around the gate
- Line up along the fence near your child's entrance with space between each family
- Make sure your child is holding his or her belongings (backpack, lunchbox, etc)
- Have your Operoo health certification green check ready to go by opening the email receipt in your inbox before you leave your home
- Wait until the family before you has stepped away before approaching school staff with your child and your phone.
Thank you for your cooperation and support in keeping everyone safe. We look forward to seeing you in school or online soon!
