Blended Learning Schedules

P.S. 18R has chosen to operate on the NYC DOE's model #1A of hybrid learning. See details below.

Two in-person blended learning groups go to school twice per week:

  • In this model, there are  two in-person student groups (A, B) and one fully remote student group (D).

  • Students in groups A and B will receive in-person instruction 2 days per week. Students will participate in remote learning for non-in person days.

  • Students whose families choose fully remote learning will receive remote instruction every day.

In-Person Schedule (Group D will be 100% remote.)

BUILDING SAFETY: YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WHILE IN THE BUILDING

We have put safety procedures in place to keep our students and staff healthy. 

  • Masks: Masks must be worn at all times by all adults and students.
  • Handwashing: Students and staff are expected to wash hands thoroughly before and after eating, after using the bathroom, if exposed to body fluids (like saliva or a sneeze), and at other times necessary throughout the day.  
  • Drop-off and pickup procedures: Please maintain social distancing between families during drop-off and pickup. Please move through the drop-off and pickup line as quickly as possible to make room for families behind you.
  • Visiting our school: We are limiting visitors to the school during this time. Most parent-teacher conferences and other meetings can be held virtually. All visits must be pre-approved and scheduled with the office.
  • Illness: Students and staff exhibiting signs of illness or having a fever of greater than 99.9°F must stay home. If you or someone you know has COVID-19 (or shows symptoms of COVID-19 such as coughing or fever), it is required that you stay home or at a designated care facility for a minimum of 14 days. Please contact us via phone or email as soon as possible.
  • Directions for local COVID testing: Please visit the NYS Coronavirus Find a Test Site page to find a test site closest to you.

REMOTE LEARNING EXPECTATIONS

During hybrid or 100% remote learning, your child is expected to complete all assignments provided by the teacher. At the same time, we recognize that working independently at home is different and difficult for many students, so we want to provide flexibility. 

  • Students and families should check Google Classroom daily for important updates from their teachers.
  • When signing in for virtual classes or meetings, students are expected to be on time, appropriately dressed, and ready to learn. We suggest signing in 5 minutes before class starts. Please try to reduce background noise and distractions as much as possible.
