Fort Hamilton News and Information - April 18,2021

Fort Students and Families,                  '           April 18, 2021  


We’re making updates to student cohorts (Remote or Blended) based on new opt-ins for Blended.  In addition, we’ve shared that any Blended student with no Term 2 attendance through April 16 will be moved to Remote. The updated cohorts will be on Pupilpath programs no later than Wednesday, April 21.  Current Blended students will attend 1 day per week through April 23.   


Starting April 28, ALL Blended students will attend in-person 3 days per week, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Many room changes are necessary to maintain 6 feet social distancing (3 feet is only for K-5 and D75), but the cohort designations will be on programs no later than 4/21 as follows: 

Remote = ZREM (same designation as before) 

Blended = ZBLE (updated to reflect in-person Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) 


All students will continue to be remote on Mondays and Tuesdays. Room changes as needed will be updated on Pupilpath prior to students attending 3 days per week.  We look for all Blended students to attend Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday starting April 28.  A reminder that Blended student MUST have consent for covid testing to attend in person. 


Covid Update at FHHS: While not transmitted at school, we had 3 Blended community members test positive for covid recently.  All exposed members, students and staff, were alerted and are on quarantine per CDC/DOE guidelines.  Thanks to everyone for their cooperation.  Test & Trace will increase testing from 1 time per week to more frequently as a result.
