From Mr. Ryan:
As per my email last week, today begins the window in which families can move from fully REMOTE to the BLENDED learning program. The window is from November 2nd to November 15th. The DOE announced last week that this will be the only time in the 2020-2021 school year that this change can be made.
Many parents have asked my opinion about this. Generally, if the learning program that your child is currently in is working reasonably well, I would recommend that they continue in their current program. Changing programs will require a schedule change and teacher changes. At this time of the year, I think such change is disruptive for a student, and may have a negative impact on their learning. In addition, if many students return to the building in this window, we may face a challenging and disruptive school-wide program change that will effect all students.
Ultimately it is your prerogative to make this choice. If you are not changing your child’s status, there is no need to do anything. Changes must be made on the survey at the following link:
