UPDATE ON MODEL USED AT PS184Q

Dearest P.S. 184Q Families,

I hope everyone is healthy and well. Thank you for your patience in the recent weeks as more information has been released and planning has been taking place behind the scenes.We continue to await final guidance on some matters but I have updated information to share with you today.

As agreed by the SLT and discussed at our Town Hall Meeting on July 20th, we are able to adjust our program model choice to allow students to be in person for an increased number of days, due to the number of families who have chosen fully remote instruction. We will be implementing Model 1A, allowing for two groups of students, instead of three. This means that the students will be in school 2 to 3 days each week. Please see the model below for specific days of the week when each group is in the building. Group A will attend Tuesdays and Thursdays and every other Monday. Group B will attend Wednesday and Friday and every other Monday. Please note that siblings will automatically be grouped in the same Group.

Student schedules for Group A and Group B will be 8:30AM-2:00PM, with staggered arrival and dismissal. Lunch will be provided to all students and will be eaten in the classrooms during instructional time.

In the coming days, we will be reorganizing students to reflect parent choice in fully remote learning and blended learning. You will receive a letter in the coming days with your child’s class and group placement, along with specific information about morning entry and dismissal, as well as family health checks. I will be scheduling grade specific remote meetings with families before the first day of school, on September 10, 2020, to provide further information about safety and instruction and school year 20-21.

As always, thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Anna Dimilta

Principal
