In-Person learning begins Tuesday Sept 29 with….

Greetings PS 101 Families-

On Tuesday September 29, we begin Blended In-person learning with GROUP C.
ONLY if you are in Group C will you be admitted into the school. Any students not on this list will be sent home immediately.

As a reminder, you MUST do an on-line Health Screening and show proof that it was completed before we can accept your child which includes taking your child’s temperature. You can do the Health Screen on-line here:
https://healthscreening.schools.nyc/. The Health Screening MUST be done on any day your child is coming to school.

Any children who are not feeling well must NOT come to school AND can join in on-line learning.

Any child who is not feeling well in school will immediately be sent to the nurse and if there are any Covid-like symptoms (cough, aches, chills, fever, etc) will be placed in the Quarantine room and sent home and not permitted back into school for 10 days (see the NYC policy below). 

What should I bring to school from the supplies?

At this point, ONLY bring a notebook and pencils/ pens with you PLUS whatever your child’s teacher told you to bring in Google Classroom (which may not be anything else aside from a pencil and notebook).

FOOD:

  • Please note that students who are in person will be grabbing both breakfast and lunch upon arrival into the school building.
  • Please note that they will NOT be served hot lunch- it will only be sandwiches (this decision is from the city, not the school)
  • You may send your child in with their own bagged lunch.
  • Students who are learning remotely -Parents can pick up school food at the main entrance (from 8:30am-12:30pm)

Starting next week, your child’s teacher will be tying a colored bandana to your child’s book bag -either Red (A Group), Blue (B Group) or Green (C Group) depending on the group they are in. PLEASE leave the bandana tied to your child’s book bag as it will help us quickly identify  what group your child is in and make dropping your child off to school easier and quicker for you as the parent.

  • September 30- Group A ONLY
  • October 1st- Group B ONLY
  • October 2- Group C ONLY
  • Please remember to follow the Blended Learning Calendar  NEW- PS 101 Blended_In-Person_ Learning School Calendar
