Fort Hamilton News and Information - March 26, 2021

Fort Students and Families,                             March 26, 2021 

 

Thank you all for a smooth return to in-person instruction this week.  I realize it is an adjustment for blended students and staff, but we applaud everyone for adapting and returning to the building with enthusiasm.   

 

We had covid testing on March 24th that will continue weekly per the DOE commitment to keep school communities safe. If your child was tested, BioReference Laboratories was the testing organization that will provide results by telephone or email provided info provided. If you have questions, contact them at patientportal@bioreference.com.

 

Many PSAL activities will resume in April, so please look for information via Pupilpath on how your child can participate.  Required documents will be a medical report, parent consent, and consent for covid testing in school, regardless of remote learning.

 

Learning Preference: Families can always choose remote for a learning preference, but the DOE opens the window to select blended from March 24 to April 9.  Families can also call 311.  There is no date set when students changing to blended will begin attending in-person but stay tuned for more information.

 

MP1 Report Cards: Available on Pupilpath.  Go to grades, report card, and make sure you are looking at Term 2, Marking Period 1.

 

Reminders:

March 29 to April 2 – Spring Recess – NO CLASSES - School CLOSED

April 5-6  – All classes fully remote.

April 7-9 - Blended students attend per cohort assignment 1 day per week (ZWED = Wednesday, ZTHU = Thursday, ZFRI = Friday.  We will assess increasing in-person days later in April.
