Reminder: Deadline to sign up for 100% remote learning this Friday, August 7

This fall, New York City schools will offer a combination of in-person and remote learning. You can choose from two basic options:

1. 100% Remote Learning: Opt-in to have your child learn 100% remotely (all online, from home). To choose this option for your child please fill out this form.

OR

2. Blended Learning – a combination of in-person and remote learning:Your child can follow their school’s schedule, a mix of in-person days at school, and remote learning days from home. To choose this option, no action is needed.

For more information on the DOE’s plans for blended learning, please visit the Return to School 2020 pages on the DOE website.

Please note:
– The deadline to Opt-in to 100% remote learning is this Friday, August 7.

– You have the ability to switch from blended learning to 100% remote learning at any point in the year. However, if you sign up for remote learning you can opt back into blended learning on a quarterly basis once the school year starts.
– Students who opt into the 100% remote option will be taught by EVCS teachers, with curriculum and experiences similar to the students participating in blended learning, minus the in-person instruction.

– If you do not Opt-in for 100 % Remote Learning your child(ren) will be automatically signed up to start the year with Blended Learning.

The first day of school for students was originally set for September 10th, however, this date and the new school year calendar has not been confirmed by the DOE yet. As soon as we have confirmation of this we will make sure you know.

Much more information about the details of our school reopening plan will be made available shortly. Please also plan to join us on Wednesday, August 12 at 6:00 for the bi-weekly Town Hall meeting with Bradley, where all of the most current information will be shared.
