What’s Happening in NYC Public Schools Update: Week of September 13-17, 2021

Dear PS 101 Families:

We were thrilled to welcome students back to the classroom—and in-person learning—this week! It was a joyous homecoming as students, teachers, school staff, and families reconnected in schools throughout the city. We are proud to once again be serving our students in safe, healthy, supportive classrooms where they can grow socially, emotionally, and academically. Please visit this DOE website for the most up-to-date information on the historic 2021-22 school year: schools.nyc.gov/homecoming

Update to Bensonhurst Community Transit – D Trains

Dear PS 101 Families:

Please be advised that starting Saturday, September 18, 2021 through January 2022, there will be no D train service between Bay 50th Street Station and Stillwell Avenue/Coney Island Station due to the MTA’s planned flood protection work over the Coney Island Creek.

Shuttle bus service will be available between Bay 50th Street and Stillwell Avenue/Coney Island stations. For alternate service, more information is available at this link: new.mta.info/coneyislandyard

Soft Lockdown Drill

Please be advised we entered into a soft  lockdown DRILL today.

Please note the MAJOR difference this year in these drills is under normal circumstances, students move into a corner of the room where they cannot be seen from the window, however, due to Social Distancing guidelines, we are following all procedures EXCEPT students will remain at their desks to ensure safe distancing.

As per DOE requirements, we are to do 4 drills per year. I am happy to inform you that everything was very swift and everyone (staff and students) responded perfectly according to our protocol. Thank you to the staff and students.
