Breakfast is “Grab and Go” -all students will grab a breakfast bag and take it to their classroom to eat, the same as they did last year, in their classroom.

As per NYC regulations, all students must complete a Health Screener before entering PS101. The Health Screener is the same as last year and can easily be completed on your phone (HINT: Bookmark it for easy access). This year we do not need to take temperature checks at the school; parents are expected to take their child’s temperature at home.

Arrival Times for September 29-October 2

Dear PS 101 Parents-

In order to be extra cautious and ensure safety, for the week of September 29-October 2nd, we will have staggered arrival times.

  • Grades 2-5 may arrive between 8:15am-8:30am and line up on the streets to begin entry into the school.
  • Kindergarten and Grade 1 are to arrive at 8:45am (next week only).
  • Pre-K may continue doing what they’ve been doing.

Staggering our arrival will give us a chance to ensure our plan works properly and that safety is assured.

While this impacts in-person students, all remote teachers will begin instruction at 8:30am as per their schedule.
