PTA Executive Board Elections and School Leadership Team Elections October 15th

Good afternoon Schuyler Families,

I hope you and your families had an enjoyable weekend and that you and your loved ones are well.  We are looking forward to our Parent Teacher Association Executive Board Elections and School Leadership Team elections which will take place on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 6pm via Zoom.  The Zoom link will be shared closer to the election.  Spanish Interpretation will be available at the election meeting.

All offices for PTA Executive Board are open including President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.   As board members you will collaborate closely with school administration and Parent Coordinator to develop programs that will engage our Schuyler Parent/Guardian community.  In the past, our PTA Executive Board has planned potluck dinners, movie nights, dances to name just a few.  Additionally, the PTA has sponsored workshops with guest speakers on important topics including finances, high school admissions process and student cyber safety.  No experience is necessary to run for a position on our PTA Executive Board.  We hope you will consider this opportunity to make a difference in our Schuyler School Community!

School Leadership Team elections:  we have 4 vacancies for Parent Membership on the School Leadership Team.   The School Leadership Team meets monthly to collaborate on decisions that impact our school community.  The primary responsibility of the SLT is to develop and monitor the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) goals.  Additionally, the SLT collaborates on the CEP action plan which outlines how all members of the school community including staff, families and students will meet the yearly goals.  Members of the SLT receive a yearly stipend for their work on the team.

If you have any questions about PTA Executive Board or SLT, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Mr. David Grady.  Looking forward to seeing you at the elections on October 15th!

August 12, 2020

Dear Families,

Thank you for your continued partnership. I hope that you are finding time to rest and enjoy the summer with your loved ones. As you know, DOE Central issued guidance to schools on blended learning and offered a series of program model choices that schools will use in the fall. As we continue the work to prepare for next year, I cannot stress enough the importance of our families being actively engaged in the planning process. Thank you to those of you that participated in our School Leadership Team meeting on July 16, 2020 and our Family Forum on August 11, 2020. At those meetings we shared our preferred Blended Learning Program model, 1B. We also shared the data from Remote Learning Surveys and data Learning Preference Survey which informed our preferred model choice. Based on review of data and in consultation with School Leadership Team and our school Re-open Committee, our school is choosing Model 1B as it best meets the needs of our students and our families.

Below is an outline of our program model:

Families will receive their student’s cohort assignment within the next two weeks via the email we have on file for you. We will have additional Family Forums in the upcoming weeks with updated guidance. Dates, times and links to the Forums will be shared via email and on our school website: philippaschuyler383.org. I encourage you to also frequently check the NYC DOE of Education website: schools.nyc.gov. Feel free to contact our Parent Coordinator, Mr. David Grady at Dgrady@schools.nyc.gov if you have any follow up question or concerns. Thank you for your collaboration and support during this process.

Remote Learning and School Closures

See below for a message to all NYC Dept of Education families:

Dear Families,

All of us are living through an unprecedented time as we work to keep our communities safe and healthy in the face of the coronavirus. New Yorkers are joining millions in cities, states, and nations across the world in confronting decisions that we’ve never had to face—and maybe never could have imagined having to. Here in New York, Mayor de Blasio and I have been clear that any changes to our school system as we know it would be an extreme measure—a last resort. We’ve been monitoring the outbreak in New York City day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. This weekend, it became clear that continuing public education in our school buildings was no longer sustainable for the time being. On Sunday, we announced that for the next three and a half weeks, we are moving to a remote learning model, with a projected reopening of school buildings the week of April 20, 2020. I know this may feel abrupt, and has the potential to cause disruption in your lives. We are committed to consistent and clear communication with you throughout this time period, and a clear understanding of what will happen. Our announcement today means that Monday, March 16, school buildings are closed and students will be out of session. However, students and families can pick up medication or receive any standard medical services from Tuesday through Thursday, during regular school hours; school nurses and school based health center staff will be on site. During that time, teachers will also be expected to report to their buildings and receive full-day professional development on remote learning. Later in the week, students will begin picking up materials, including technology to participate in remote learning when needed. Additional guidance on all of this will be shared with you in the next couple of days. All throughout this week, grab-and-go breakfast will be available at the entrance of every school building from 7:30 AM – 1:30 PM. Any student can pick up breakfast and lunch at any school building. On Monday, March 23, we will be opening several dozen Regional Enrichment Centers across the City, to serve the children of our City’s first responders, healthcare workers, transit workers, and our most vulnerable populations.

That Monday, we will also launch remote learning for grades K-12. I have every confidence in New York City educators and know they will rise to the occasion, and dedicate the same passion for delivering high-quality instruction remotely as they do in the classroom. We know we have the most dedicated school staff: teachers, custodians, administrators, and especially the school food workers who will be continuing to work during this time as part of a citywide meals program. More information on the launch of that program will be coming soon. 2 I want to be clear that this is not a closure, but a transition. We will not lower our expectations for our students. We know they are hungry to learn and we will match their curiosity and passion with work-from home materials, including distribution of devices that will support our remote-learning instructional model. There are already instructional resources available for every grade level in every subject at schools.nyc.gov/learnathome. We know this is a difficult time, and we are working hard to make sure our City continues to support families in every way we can. I want to assure families we’re working to make this as seamless a transition as possible. Now is the time to come together to do what’s best for the health and safety of all New Yorkers. We are with you, partners in education in the greatest city in the world. We have the world’s most talented students, educators, and staff—and nothing will ever change that.

� Tuesday, March 24th from 2:40 to 3:55

Option 2: Provide a working phone number to the teacher via Pupil Path and indicate whether you are available on March 12th or March 13th during the designated Parent Teacher Conference times. These phone calls will take place on Thursday evening from 4:30 to 7:30 pm and on Friday afternoon from 12:40 to 2:40 pm.

Option 3: Call the school directly at 718-574-0390 to set up an appointment to meet with a teachers on a Tuesday in March OR leave a working phone number so that the teacher may call you on 3/12 or 3/13 during Parent Teacher Conference time.

Did you know that New York City offers students a wealth of free and low-cost opportunities to explore learning beyond the classroom? Throughout the year, students across the City can take part in many exciting activities and programs, including STEM-based (science, technology, engineering, and math) enrichment programs, arts workshops, and career-building internships. And with spring just around the corner, this is the perfect time for students and families to explore their options for Spring Recess and Summer Break.
