Good evening PS101 families-
As I am sure you know by following the news, there is a mandate in place that all staff must be vaccinated by today Friday October 1, 2021. As is the case for every school, PS101 has staff members who have either decided not to get vaccinated at this time or have an approved exemption in place. Regardless of the reason, the city has mandated that staff who are unvaccinated at this time are no longer permitted to work in a school building and are being assigned work outside of school.
What does this mean for me and my child?
It means that we will have staff and assignment changes that may impact your child. In the event your child’s teacher or paraprofessional is being changed due to the reasons above, you will receive notification on Monday October 4, 2021. Due to high demand for educational staff, substitutes (not permanent) staff may be assigned to classrooms until such time we secure teaching staff for the year.
While I know that no one wants a change in their child’s routine, especially when it comes to school, we are working diligently to secure the best staff to work in PS101 and will continue to provide the best educational experience your child can have.
Thank you for your cooperation.
