Dear Families, It is my pleasure to welcome you and your children to the 2020–21 school year! We could not have achieved this milestone without every one of you. I am grateful for your support and your faith in our public schools. So many New Yorkers have worked around the clock to accomplish this shared goal: the safe return of our students, teachers, and school staff to classroom and remote learning. There is no doubt this has been a challenging seven months, but we should feel proud of the outstanding job New Yorkers have done to fight COVID-19. Our actions have led to weeks of very low infection rates citywide. However, the virus is still active in our city, state, and country. We know that there will be cases of COVID-19 this fall. The good news is we are prepared to fight this virus while holding true to our mission—ensuring that all our students continue to learn and thrive.

Dear CS 200 Family, Thank you all for your continued support of our students throughout this process and for your participation in Town Hall meetings for the reopening of school year 2020 – 2021. The New York City Department of Education has been working diligently to provide our students, faculty, and staff a safe workplace to return to. I would like to thank you for your patience and flexibility as we share this just released update on our students’ arrival and dismissal time for school year 2020 – 2021. Please keep in mind that protocols and structures may be changed if we receive updated guidelines and/or there is a need for modifications.
