- All students have now been designated 100% DAILY or 100% REMOTE. You have received a letter indicating your choice.
- The next time to change your child's learning model is May 10th. Please contact your childs counselor to change learning models.
- Students will be expected to bring in a new YELLOW health screening slip each day (replaces the green). A pad of yellow screening slips has been provided to each child. If you didn't receive the yellow slips yet just send in a green one and we will provide the yellow pad to go home with your child on the 12th.
- At this time, students will need to wear a mask AND face shield when social distancing cannot be maintained. If they don't currently have a shield, one will be provided on the bus or during homeroom.
- Students will be given lockers to use but may also use backpacks for the remainder of the year
- Every in-person student will receive an updated schedule the first day back---some room numbers have changed
- We will resume eating breakfast in the cafeteria instead of classrooms
- Students that wish to purchase lunch will fill out a lunch form during homeroom. This will be a new procedure.
- Lunch periods will be divided into two 20 minute rotations: A-K and L-Z. Last names A-K will always report to the cafeteria first. L-Z will either go outside if the weather permits or go to the computer lab or LMC in the event of inclement weather. After 20 minutes, we will change the groups.
- Staff will review all lockdown and fire drill procedures with students the first few days back to school as well
- Students should be sure to continue to bring their charged chromebooks to school each day.
- Remember that hand hygiene is very important and will continue to be promoted each day at school.
Lastly, we will talk with all the students about being respectful and responsible, this is how we expect our WARRIORS to behave both in and out of the classroom. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of your administrators:
Grade 6: Ms. Hajdasz Assistant Principal firstname.lastname@example.org
Grade 7/8: Mr. Spost Assistant Principal email@example.com

Below are the rules upon returning to the USA:
Travel to New York From Other Countries Current CDC guidance requires air passengers traveling to the U.S. from another country show either documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 within in the previous 3 months or a negative test result from no more than 3 days prior to day of travel to the airline before boarding the flight. This applies to both U.S. residents and visitors from other countries. (Documentation of vaccination status or antibody test results will not be accepted as proof of COVID status prior to boarding, per CDC guidance.) After arrival in the U.S., travelers must either quarantine for 7 days with a test 3-5 days after travel, or quarantine for the full 10 days without a test. This requirement applies to all international travelers whether they were tested before boarding, are recovered from a previous COVID infection, or are fully vaccinated. For more information on acceptable documentation visit “Requirement for Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test or Recovery from COVID-19 for All Air Passengers Arriving in the United States | CDC.” The CDC is providing limited exemptions for flight crews and other extraordinary circumstances. Compliance with CDC guidance for international travel is required in New York State for all travelers arriving or passing through New York from other countries (e.g., connecting flights), including healthcare workers and essential workers. Quarantine Requirements Travelers to New York who are required to quarantine must comply with the following quarantine guidance.

Grades 3-8 State Testing
June 7th--Science Written Test Grade 8 only
Please see the letter below that was mailed home last week:
March 16, 2021
This morning we received notification from the New York State Education Department that the spring 2021 Grades 3-8 English Language Arts and Mathematics tests will be held with some changes to the tests. The changes are as follows:
The Department has determined that it will not be possible to administer any of the year’s State Assessments remotely.
Assessments will only be “school-based” and “in-person” and school are not expected to bring students into the building to participate in the tests if the students are receiving entirely remote instruction during the testing window.
· Schools will only be required to administer Session 1 of the ELA and Mathematics Tests
· Only student scores on the Session 1 test questions will contribute to students’ total scores for the tests.
· Session 1 tests have been reduced in length by the removal of the embedded multiple-choice field test questions.
In addition, the New York State Education Department has requested a waiver for the entirety of the spring 2021 Grade 3-8 tests. At this time, the United States Department of Education has not accepted the waiver. Should the waiver be accepted, there would be no state assessments of any kind for our students.
To read the memorandum in its entirety, please refer to the following link:
