Update From The Chancellor- Red Zones

 

October 21, 2020

Dear Families,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

Earlier this month, the State designated your school as located in a “red zone,” requiring the closure of your school building and a transition to fully remote teaching and learning for an initial two-week period. This week, the State of New York made some important announcements regarding its designation of geographic zones reflecting elevated levels of COVID-19 transmission. I am writing today to explain how this affects your school and important next steps.

Here is today’s update:

 Your school’s geographic area continues to be identified as a “red zone.” School buildings in these zones will continue to remain closed until further notice.

 Fully remote teaching and learning will continue for all students.

You can find a map of the red zone, and other specially designated zones at nyc.gov/covidzone.

I know that for many of you, it is disappointing that your building will remain closed. We know nothing can replace in-person learning. But we continue to support your child’s teachers and all school staff to ensure they have a strong, engaging learning experience focused on academic excellence, community-building, and social emotional support. We remain committed to academic success for your child—no matter where they are learning.

Once again, the Mayor and I consider your family’s health and safety, and that of everyone in your school community, to be our top priority, and we have pledged to keep it at the forefront of everything we do. I know that by continuing to work together, we can effectively fight back against COVID-19.

It’s up to all of us, no matter where we are, to remain vigilant in taking the steps we know are so important in preventing the spread of this virus. Remember the “Core Four”: wash your hands, wear a face covering, keep six feet of distance from others, and stay home if you’re feeling sick. These are critically important steps that all of us can take every day.

We will continue to unequivocally support you, and everyone in the DOE family, as this public health crisis continues to evolve. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s school with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Carranza

Chancellor,

New York City Department of Education

This is a recap of our Family Google Meet on Friday, October 9th.

 

This is a recap of our Family Google Meet on Friday, October 9th.
 
Building Closure:  Our building will be closed at least through next Wednesday, October 21st, and possibly longer.  We will communicate with you once we receive any information related to the building's reopening.  All students will learn remotely each day until the building reopens.  Thus far this school year, there have been no confirmed Covid-19 cases among our students or staff.
Please check the PS/IS 192 website to see which cohort (either a, b, or c) is scheduled to report to the building upon the building reopening.  
 
Open PTA and SLT positions:  We are looking for parents who are interested in taking an active role in collaborating with the school to continually improve our children's educational experience.  If you are interested in joining the PTA and/or SLT, please nominate yourself on this form.  Our students and our school community need your insights, your perspectives, and some of your time, energy, and passion.  
 
 
Covid-19 Testing:  There were many questions related to the covid-19 random testing initiative starting once we return to the school building.  Please review this Covid-19 testing page for all relevant information, including the covid-19 testing consent form.  Also, for your convenience we've included a link to the testing centers closest to your address.
 
Health screening:  Upon our return to the school building, please ensure your child conducts a daily health screening before leaving home.  
    • Families need to do the following before arriving to school:
      • Check their child's temperature at home
      • Complete the Health Screening Survey at home
      • At the school entrance prior to entry, show their confirmation email via electronic device, printed copy, or their health screening placard backpacked home your child's first day
Device concerns:  If your child is having problems with his/her device, please be sure to notify his/her teacher and also inform our parent coordinator, Yolanda Fioriello at yfioriello@schools.nyc.gov.  If you will need to request a device from the DOE, please complete this Remote Learning Device Request.  
 
Important document submission:  You should have received the attached "to do" form from your child's teacher which consolidates most of the information we'll need from you regarding your child into one location.  We are asking you to please complete each form for each of your children within the next few days (If you have already submitted a form, no need to resubmit).  
 
Opt-in Dates: There was a question during last Friday's meeting about when it would be possible to opt your child back into blended learning from fully remote learning. Please see the timeline below for opt-in windows throughout the school year. Please note, a parent/guardian can opt a student out from blended learning into fully remote learning at any time by completing this learning preference survey.
 
 

Take-Out Meals For Remote Learning Students

While your child is learning remotely, take-out meals for students will be available at the main entrance of PS/IS 192 on school days only, 9:00AM-12 noon.

Sincerely,

Dear Families of District 20,


My name is Dr. Joseph O’Brien and it is my great honor and privilege to introduce myself as Interim Acting Community Superintendent of District 20. I look now to partner with you to foster participation between the District office, our schools and our amazing community of families.


I know many of us are feeling anxiety, however, our principals, assistant principals, teachers and school staff have worked tirelessly to make opening day on September 16, 2020 for remote students and September 21, 2020 for blended scheduled students, safe, meaningful and successful.


I look forward to working side-by-side with you in the days ahead and building new bridges of communication, so that we may work together for the betterment of all of our students.

Please note, we are forging the District 20 Equity Committee, which will meet on September 30, 2020 at 1 pm. I welcome you to join us in looking at ways that we may help all students, including those from underrepresented populations.

If you are interested in joining us, please email me at jobrien17@schools.nyc.gov with your name, your child(s) name and the D20 school in which they attend.


Further, I welcome you to join us at our Immigrant Parent Advisory Council and Community Education Council (CEC) meetings this year. The bond between the school house and our families is an essential one and I urge each and every one of you to join the talented teachers, assistant principals and principals of D20 to build a better tomorrow, today.


Thank you so very much and I look forward to continuing the conversation.


I can always be reached via email at jobrien17@schools.nyc.gov

Estimadas familias del Distrito 20:


Soy el Dr. Joseph O’Brien y es un gran honor y privilegio presentarme como superintendente comunitario interino del Distrito 20. En este momento, espero poder trabajar en equipo junto a ustedes para fomentar la participación entre la oficina del distrito, nuestras escuelas y nuestra increíble comunidad de familias.


Sé que muchos de nosotros sentimos ansiedad, sin embargo, nuestros directores, subdirectores, maestros y personal escolar han trabajado incansablemente para hacer que el día de la apertura, el 16 de septiembre de 2020 para la modalidad a distancia, y el 21 de septiembre de 2020 para el modelo de aprendizaje semipresencial, sea seguro, significativo y exitoso.


Espero que trabajemos juntos en los próximos días y construyamos nuevos puentes de comunicación para que podamos colaborar en el progreso de todos nuestros estudiantes.

Tengan en cuenta que estamos formando el Comité de Equidad del Distrito 20, que se reunirá el 30 de septiembre de 2020 a la 1 p.m. Los invito a acompañarnos para buscar formas de ayudar a todos los estudiantes, incluyendo aquellos de poblaciones con poca representación.

Si están interesados en participar, deben enviarme un correo electrónico a jobrien17@schools.nyc.gov que indique su nombre, el nombre de su(s) hijo(s) y la escuela del Distrito 20 a la que asisten.


Además, quisiera invitarlos a las reuniones de este año del Consejo de Educación Comunitario (Community Education Council, CEC) y el Consejo de Padres Asesores sobre inmigración. El vínculo entre la escuela y nuestras familias es fundamental y les recomiendo a todos ustedes aliarse a los talentosos maestros, subdirectores y directores del Distrito 20 para construir un mejor mañana a partir de hoy.


Muchas gracias y espero que continuemos el diálogo.


Recuerden que siempre pueden contactarme por correo electrónico: jobrien17@schools.nyc.gov.

Message from Our Principal

10/2/2020 11:12 AM

 

Dear P.S. 192 - The Magnet School for Math and Science Inquiry Community:

The health and safety of our students and staff, and everyone in the DOE family across the city, is our top priority. We are committed to ensuring you have the information you need on COVID-19 as we continue to navigate this public health emergency together.

Today we are writing to inform you, out of an abundance of caution, that on 10/2/2020 11:12 AM a member of our school community was sent home with COVID-19 symptoms.

We are handling this situation with the utmost seriousness. At this time there are no plans for classroom or school closures, and students in blended learning should continue to attend on their in-person days as regularly scheduled unless they are feeling ill. If, and only if, the individual tests positive, you will receive another update informing you and framing the next steps.

Please be reassured that we are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within our school community, including ensuring that anyone who feels sick in the school building can isolate. Our school has designated an isolation room where a student with symptoms associated with COVID-19 can be safely isolated and evaluated by a healthcare professional until they are picked up by a guardian.

If the individual tests positive for COVID-19, they cannot return to the school until they have isolated for 10 days and been fever-free for 24 hours without use of medication and have other symptoms improving.

It’s up to all of us to help keep our school community safe and healthy. Please remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:

· Stay home if sick: Monitor your and your child’s health and stay home if you are sick or keep them home if they are sick, except for getting essential medical care (including COVID-19 testing) and other essential needs.

· Physical distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household.

· Wear a face covering: Protect those around you. Wearing a face covering helps reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially if you are sick and don’t have symptoms. For more information about face coverings, visit nyc.gov/health/coronavirus and look for "FAQ About Face Coverings."

· Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available; clean frequently touched surfaces regularly; avoid touching your face with unwashed hands; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.

We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please set up a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa.

For additional information on COVID-19, visit schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus or call 311.

Thank you for your cooperation. Health and safety will always come first in New York City public schools, no matter what.

Sincerely,

Colby Muscarelle

Chancellor's Letter

October 9, 2020

Dear Families,

I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones well. As you are aware, earlier this week your school transitioned to fully remote teaching and learning as a precautionary measure in the fight against COVID-19. Soon after, we received an updated mandate from the State on the actions we must take to address COVID-19 hot spots in our communities. We want to let you know that this mandate does not change anything regarding the status of your school building. It will remain closed through at least Wednesday, October 21. Fully remote teaching and learning will continue during this time.

We will continue to proactively provide updates. And as I mentioned in a previous letter, we will continue taking all necessary steps to ensure your student engages in dynamic, effective learning while remote. Health, safety, and academic excellence continue to lead the way.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s school with any questions or concerns. You can find information about your child’s school, including principal contact information, on our website using “Find a School” at schoolsearch.schools.nyc. 

Thank you for patience and commitment during this unprecedented time.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Carranza

Parent Teacher Conferences

October 26, 2020

Dear Families,

We hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to notify you of the upcoming Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday, November 5th. The conferences will not be in the school building; they will take place through virtual meetings, either on Google Meet or over the phone. Afternoon conferences can be anytime between 12:30 and 2:30 PM and evening conferences will be between 4:30 and 7 pm. Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to you to coordinate the time slot of your meeting(s). On November 5th, students will dismiss three hours early, so their school day will run from 8:30 AM until 11 AM.

Also, next Tuesday, November 3rd is Election Day and all students will learn remotely. Teachers will not be teaching live on November 3rd because they will have a full day of professional development; however, they will be posting work and students will be expected to complete the work throughout the day.

Please be sure to stay safe and try to keep your spirits up throughout these challenging times. Let’s continue to support each other as a school family.

Sincerely,

Colby Muscarelle

Principal, I.A

Chancellors Update

September 21, 2020

Dear Families,


It is my pleasure to welcome you and your children to the 2020–21 school year! We could not have achieved this
milestone without every one of you. I am grateful for your support and your faith in our public schools. So many
New Yorkers have worked around the clock to accomplish this shared goal: the safe return of our students,
teachers, and school staff to classroom and remote learning.


There is no doubt this has been a challenging seven months, but we should feel proud of the outstanding job New
Yorkers have done to fight COVID-19. Our actions have led to weeks of very low infection rates citywide.
However, the virus is still active in our city, state, and country. We know that there will be cases of COVID-19
this fall. The good news is we are prepared to fight this virus while holding true to our mission—ensuring that all
our students continue to learn and thrive.


To carry this out, we have put in place strict health and safety protocols and created a COVID-19 Response
Situation Room for DOE principals, which serves as a “one-stop shop” for school leaders in handling all COVID19 cases in schools. When principals learn of a potential COVID-19 case in their school, they call the Situation Room to report it, and medical, public health, and education staff are on hand and readily available to support principals through responding to it. Principals or their designees call the Situation Room, which helps to handleeverything from there - including quickly communicating vital updates for principals to share with their schoolcommunities.


We are confident in our ability to provide your children with the healthy, safe, engaging, high-quality education
you expect. We will continue to be transparent and keep you informed. In this Update for Families, I am happy
to share the latest information on:
 How to complete daily health screenings for your child,
 Where to get tested for COVID-19,
 How to stay informed on COVID-19 cases in your school community, and
 What transportation to and from school looks like


In addition, to help you find key information I have shared in past updates, we have included quick links to DOE
resources on:
 Health and safety measures in our schools,
 What teaching and learning looks like this year, and
 School schedules for elementary, middle, and high schools


As always, all information regarding back to school can be found at schools.nyc.gov/returntoschool2020. If you
have additional questions, please contact your principal. You can find information about your child’s school,
including principal contact information, on our website using “Find a School” at schoolsearch.schools.nyc.


You have heard me say that September is my favorite month, and that is especially true this year. Return to School
2020 took a team effort, thousands of hours of work, and attention to countless details to get where we are today.
I could not be prouder of our families, students, educators, and everyone who works in and for our schools.


As we start the new school year together, I can assure you that the largest school system in the nation is well
prepared and up to the task. Please know that we are here for you. Your teachers and principals are here for
you. And, together, we will achieve a remarkable year of learning.


Sincerely,


Richard A. Carranza

Return to SCHOOL
2020 Learning Bridges Program
As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and early childhood programs will operate on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students will have some school days in person, and some school days remotely. Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning. If you are interested in the Learning Bridges program, please complete the survey at schools.nyc.gov/learningbridges.
The Learning Bridges programs will:
• Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners
• Provide opportunities for children to connect to remote learning
• Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities
• Follow all health and safety requirements and protocols
You can complete the survey even if you do not yet know your child’s school schedule. The survey is meant to assess interest; this is not a formal application. More information will be shared by the Department of Education (children in 3-K and pre-K) or the Department of Youth & Community Development (children in grades K–8) about a potential placement in the coming weeks. Programs will become available on a rolling basis beginning at the start of school.

Learning Preference Surveys

This year, all New York City schools plan to offer blended learning, a mix of in-person days at school and remote-learning days at home. The default for all students is to participate in their schools’ blended learning schedules.

 

If you wish to opt in to full-time remote learning, please fill out your learning preference survey as soon as possible by clicking here or calling 311.

P.S./I.S. 192 School Selection Model 2020 - 2021

  Student group information will be sent to your child's school e-mail (psis192.org). 

A calendar of student groups will be posted on the school website.
