New Opt-in Window for Blended Learning

Dear Families,

Due to changes in CDC social distancing regulations, Families will now have one more opportunity to transition to blended learning this school year. This means that if your child is currently learning remotely every day, they will be able to opt in to learning in-person in the school building at least part of the week for the remainder of the school year. We will make every effort to provide as many days of in-person learning as possible.

Opt In to Blended Learning from March 24- April 9:

Beginning Wednesday, March 24, you can visit the Learning Preference Survey to select blended learning for your child. Families can also call 311.
Last Day: You can change to blended learning until Friday, April 9.

You ONLY need to fill out the Learning Preference Survey if you are currently Remote and want your child to come to in-person learning. If you do not fill out the survey, your child remains remote.

Classes that are currently in Split A/B sessions MAY be combined to 5 days IF capacity spacing allows this. More information will come in April.

When can students come into PS101?

Students who opt into blended learning during this opt-in window will return to buildings in April (date to be determined)

Requirements for Returning to the School Building
Please note that if you select blended learning for your child, you must submit the consent form for random
COVID-19 testing by the first day your child begins in-person learning
. You can submit your consent for testing
one of two ways:
-Through your New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) under ‘Manage Account’, or
-Complete and sign the consent form available here and bring it to PS101 on the first day they are back in the school building.

Families that select blended learning must have their child attend in person on days they are scheduled
to do so
or they will be switched to remote.

All of our strong health and safety practices—including wearing masks, hand hygiene, weekly random testing
for COVID-19, physical distancing, and more will continue.
