Welcome In-person Learners!

We are excited to welcome our In-person (Blended Learning) students this week!

Group C begins on Tuesday, Sept. 29.
Group A begins on Wednesday, Sept. 30.
Group B begins on Thursday, Oct. 1.

Please consult our school calendar at the bottom of this page and add it to your own personal Google Calendar.

All In-person Learners should bring with them a face mask and device. If they don't bring a face mask, one will be given to them. Students will be instructed how to log on to the school's guest wi-fi with their devices.

Students, and all visitors to the building, must complete the NYC DOE Health Screening. More information about these daily health screenings, including how-to videos in multiple languages, are available as part of our Reopening Plan.

Finally, please review our Arrival and Dismissal Procedures to learn which door your child must use and what time your child's class will be exiting the building at dismissal so that we may implement safe practices.

Switch to Remote Learning.

If you'd like to switch your child from Hybrid (in-person) to Remote Learning, please fill out the DOE Learning Preference Survey.

All New Yorkers need to fill out the 2020 census now before the new September 30th deadline.

We need all New Yorkers to get counted to ensure our communities get our fair share of federal funding for schools, hospitals, housing, and more, in addition to the representation in Congress that we deserve!


A welcome back message from our principals!

Learn our alma mater!

Learn what you can and can't touch when you return to school!

Wolfie, Jumah, & Stacy teach good safety habits for when we return!

School is going to be a little different this year... and that's ok!
