Letter to Families re Inclement Weather 12/15/20:
Dear Families,
I hope you are safe and well.
As we head into winter, it’s likely we will have inclement weather that in an ordinary year would cause all schools
to close for teaching and learning. This year, if a snowstorm or other weather demands that school buildings
close, all schools will still conduct remote learning on that day. All students will be expected to log on and engage
with their work from home as they do on other days when they learn remotely. Middle and high school students
who are already learning remotely every day are expected to attend school remotely, regardless of the weather.
The ability to teach and learn remotely across the system allows us to continue learning despite inclement weather
closures. You will still be notified as usual when we are closing buildings due to weather, but these will not be
days off from learning.
Your school will stay in close communication with you regarding the upcoming snowstorm predicted to affect
New York City beginning the evening of Wednesday, December 16. Please note that extra meals will be available
on Tuesday, December 15 and Wednesday, December 16 to take home.
Please do not hesitate to contact your principal if you have any questions.
Sincerely,
Richard A. Carranza
Chancellor
New York City Department of Education

⚠️ #NYC public school update for Sunday, November 29, 2020

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that beginning on December 7, 2020, elementary (Kindergarten to 5th grade) classes will resume with 20% in-school weekly #COVID19 testing, moving to 5-days per week in-person in as many places as possible (No weekly COVID-19 testing of 3K, pre-K and K).

Beginning on December 10, 2020, D75 schools will reopen with 20% in-school weekly COVID-19 testing, moving to 5-days per week in-person in as many places as possible.

City Hall is discussing how to proceed with schools in the Orange Zone with the Governor’s office, and plans to reopen all 45 affected schools as quickly as possible, aiming for the week of December 7th.

While NYC works to reopen its schools in the orange and red zone, I have been asked if 3 and 4 years olds need to be tested in those zones, unlike the yellow zones.

The answer is: In orange and red
zones current New York State Guidance for ALL Schools (public and private) in Orange and Red zones requires everyone in a school building to have a negative COVID test, this includes 3 and 4 year olds. A parent can always have their child go remote if they do not want to have their child tested.

NYC DOE - Middle and High Schools

At this time we don’t know when middle schools and high schools will reopen. Will be a function of transmission rate as well as staffing and space resources. Goal is reopening those schools but don’t have an announcement date yet.

Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 24, 2020
N-2, 2020-21
CHANCELLOR CARRANZA LAUNCHES PARENT UNIVERSITY, NEW ONLINE RESOURCE FOR FAMILIES
NEW YORK – Today, Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza launched Parent University, a new online platform that offers a centralized catalog of courses, live events, and activities to help connect with families and support students. The platforms offers all New York City parents and guardians access to live and on-demand courses and resources across multiple discipline areas and grade bands.
“Our families have been so resilient this past year, and through Parent University we’re finding more ways to empower parents and guardians as partners,” said Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza. “We know our families are busier than ever, and this platform is designed to meet parents where they are, whether that’s pre-recorded courses, or live virtual events. We’ll continue to add resources that support, engage, and educate our families throughout the year.”
The DOE’s Family and Community Empowerment (FACE) team, in partnership with the Division of Instructional and Information Technology (DIIT), worked collaboratively to design and operationalize Parent University. Along with tailored resources and courses, it also provides another way for DOE and community partners to share important news, updates, and information with families. Courses are available in multiple languages and we’re working to expand the amount of multilingual offerings.
“Parent empowerment is at the center of everything we do and this is another tool to help us lift up the roles of families for the benefit of our students,” said Acting Deputy Chancellor of Community Empowerment, Partnerships, and Communications, Adrienne Austin. “In these unprecedented times, it’s so important that we get creative and find ways to reach every household and strengthen our communities.”
All families, from early childhood to adult education, can create a free account and register for workshops, attend an event, find a training and more. There are currently 95+ courses offered and they cover a wide range of topics including:
• Remote Learning and Technology
• Health and Wellness
• Special Education
• Multilingual Learners
• Early Childhood Education
• Parent Leadership
• School Buildings and Operations
• Adult and Continuing Education
Families can visit Parent University today at parentu.schools.nyc

FYI- All NYC Public Schools will be fully remote starting tomorrow November 19th, 2020 until further notice.

☑️ FREE MEALS: All families can continue to go to any school building (9am-12pm on weekdays) to pick up three free grab-and-go meals. No identification or registration is necessary. Halal and kosher meals are available at some sites. Learn more: schools.nyc.gov/freemeals.

☑️ Learning Bridges: the City’s free childcare program for children in 3-K through 8th grade, will continue to serve families enrolled in blended learning. We will continue to give priority to children of essential workers. Learn more and apply at schools.nyc.gov/learningbridges.

☑️ 3-K & Pre-K classrooms in district schools & DOE Pre-K Centers will be closed. If your child attends a program in a community-based center that is not located in a public school, or attends a family childcare program that is part of a DOE network, it will remain open. If you are not sure which type of program your child attends or have questions about your child’s services, please contact your program directly.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s school with any questions or concerns, and remember:
🙌🏽 wash your hands
😷 wear a face covering
↔️ keep six feet of distance from others
🏠 stay home if you’re feeling sick
