We are excited to welcome our Blended Learning Students Back to the Building. Below is important information to review to prepare for school building re-opening:

1. Some students will receive an updated Blended Learning Schedule. If your child’s schedule is updated you will receive this information starting Tuesday February 9th but no later than February 11th.  Updated schedules will be sent via Pupil Path emails and in your child’s Google Classroom.

2. School hours will remain the same. School begins at 8:30 and all students are dismissed at 2pm.

3. Students will wear their Schuyler Uniforms and must bring their devices to the school building.

Weekly Covid Testing Consent Forms:

All Blended Learning students must have an UPDATED signed weekly covid testing consent form on file. This form was updated as of October 2020. If you signed the consent prior to that date, an updated form is needed. Students must submit this updated consent by the first day of in-person attendance in order to attend. Testing consent forms may be submitted on your New York City Schools Account at this link:

You may also come to the school building Monday-Friday from 9-1:30 to complete the consent form.

Please know that the health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority. We will continue to follow all health and safety guidelines from the Fall Re-Opening including:

1.  All students and staff must wear a mask at all times.

2. Social distancing protocols followed at entry, exit and in the classrooms.

3. Students will remain in their same classrooms with their same cohort of students throughout the day.  Physical Education class will take place in the gymnasium with social distancing protocols followed during transition and class time. Electives such as Dance and Theater will take place in dance room or auditorium and social distance protocols will be followed during transitions and in these specialty rooms.

4. Breakfast and lunch will be served daily in the classroom.

5. PPE will be available including disposable masks, hand sanitizing stations in each classroom and air purifiers in each classroom.
