Principals Letter April 8th, 2022

April 08, 2022

Greetings,

As COVID cases increase citywide and, in our school, we strongly recommend that all students wear a mask again to school.  While we cannot mandate students to wear masks, we have shown this past year that when masking, our school cases stay low.  With this new surge, it is essential that we work together as a community to keep community spread low.  All adults are encouraged to get a booster shot, while we encourage all students above the age of 5 to consider getting the COVID vaccine.  We have made so much progress since earlier this year and together we can continue to support our students’ social and academic needs. 

Don’t forget to nominate a hero from our community for the Hero Summit.  The Hero Summit is a time to celebrate those who have lifted up our community.  

Upcoming Dates: 

April 11th -Sustainability Week

April 11th -5th Grade Picture Day, Retakes, & Sibling photos

April 11th -Class Parent Meeting

April 12th -PTA Meeting @ 6pm

April 15th-22nd -No School 

April 26th -SLT Meeting @ 5:45

Reminders:

  • Click on Learning Survey, Click on Take the 2022 NYC School Survey, Enter the letter  f for family & your child’s OSIS number (i.e. f123456789), Complete the survey.

Saludos,

A medida que aumentan los casos de COVID en toda la ciudad y en nuestra escuela, recomendamos fuertemente que todos los estudiantes usen una máscara nuevamente en la escuela. Aunque no podemos obligar a los estudiantes a usar máscaras, hemos visto que cuando se usan máscaras, nuestros casos escolares se mantienen bajos, como se demostró el año pasado. Con este nuevo aumento de casos positivos, es esencial que trabajemos juntos como comunidad para mantener bajos los casos positivos. Se recomienda a todos los adultos a recibir una vacuna de refuerzo, mientras que recomendamos a todos los estudiantes mayores de 5 años a que consideren recibir la vacuna de COVID. Hemos progresado mucho desde principios de este año y juntos podemos continuar apoyando las necesidades sociales y académicas de nuestros estudiantes.

No olvide nominar a un héroe de nuestra comunidad para la Cumbre de Héroes. La Cumbre de Héroes es un momento para celebrar a aquellos que han levantado nuestra comunidad.

您好,

随着全市 COVID 病例的增加,在我们学校,我们强烈建议所有学生再次戴口罩上学。虽然我们不能强制学生戴口罩,但我们在过去一年中已经证明,戴口罩时,我们的学校病例保持在较低水平。随着这一新病例的激增,我们作为一个社区必须共同努力,以保持社区传播的低水平。我们鼓励所有成年人接种加强针,同时我们鼓励所有 5 岁以上的学生考虑接种 COVID 疫苗。自今年早些时候以来,我们取得了很大进展,我们可以一起继续支持我们学生的社交和学术需求。

不要忘记从我们的社区中提名一位英雄参加英雄峰会。英雄峰会是庆祝那些提升我们社区的人的时刻。
