Reminders tofinish Term 1 with the maximum credits possible:
� NO NEW WORK ASSIGNED unless directly related to preparation for final exam. This will enable students to best prepare for exams and complete essential assignments required to earn credit and succeed this term.
� All students who would have been registered for January 2021 Regents exams can see the exam reflected on Pupilpath programs. If students complete the appropriate course requirements by the end of Term 1, they will earn the waiver per NYSED policy. The equivalent to the waiver (WA) is 65%.
� Instruction remains fully remote and everyone follows the bell schedule daily, including January 25-29
� Final exams: January 13 to January 22 – see detail below
� Students working to recover NX grades from SY2019-20 (Term 2 or Term 7) must complete the make-up work before the end of Term 1 to avoid repeating the entire course. All NX grades from SY2019-20 must be modified to either CR (credit) or NC (no credit). Students will need to repeat the full course in Term 2 if NX not made up in Term 1.
� All students must be registered to their parents' NYCSA account by February 1st. If you haven’t already created an account, please check this video on how to create your NYC Schools Account. https://vimeo.com/497731682
� No classes for students on Monday, February 1. Staff will be engaged in Professional Learning.
 
Covid-19 Testing Consent REQUIRED for all BLENDED Students by February 8
Even though we remain remote, all blended students are required to provide consent for covid-19 testing. Please be sure to complete the consent form no later than February 8 to avoid being moved to Remote. We will move all Blended students without consent for covid-19 testing consent to Remote after February 8, 2021. Follow guide to complete consent for covid-19 testing:
 
Fill out the covid-19 testing consent form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) at mystudent.nyc.
� If you already have a NYCSA account linked to your student(s): Log in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your student.
� If you do not already have a NYCSA account: You can create one right away! If you have an account creation code from your school, you can create a full account in approximately five minutes, and then provide consent as described above. If you do not have an account creation code from your school, you can still provide your consent right away by clicking “Manage Consent” under “COVID-19 Testing” and filling out your and your child’s information to provide consent.

Pupilpath Schedules
 
Modifications are ongoing and schedules are subject to change, so please check Pupilpath daily. Teachers will update Google Classroom within 24 hours after the change is final. The programming priority is providing correct classes at the correct level. Every student will have a minimum of 7 classes, so if you only have 6 now another will be added. In addition to correcting errors (i.e. Algebra 2 instead of Geometry- wrong math class), we can only change blended cohorts to accommodate families with 2 or more sibling at FHHS.
 
Having 4 cohorts (3 blended and 1 fully remote) with ongoing changes to fully remote, programming FHHS is even more complicated and time-consuming. We cannot entertain preferences, so please complete the form here and CORRECTIONS will be addressed by your guidance counselor.

How to Complete Daily Health Screenings for Your Child?

As always, the health and safety of our students, families, and school staff remain our top priority. We have spent months preparing for the safe reopening of our schools; we know they are like home for so many of us and provide the social-emotional support and learning our children need.

We all have a part to play in keeping our school communities safe. We are asking you to do your part by making sure your children have completed their health screenings (including temperature checks) before they enter school buildings. We encourage you to use our Online Health Screening Tool each day that your child is scheduled to attend in-person learning.

 You can find the online health screening at healthscreening.schools.nyc When you do the screening at home, you or your child just need to provide the results of the screening either by showing the email on a smartphone or a printout of the results before entering the school building. All students will receive an oral thermometer in their first week of in-person instruction in case they need one to check their temperature.

 If you or your child is not able to pre-screen using the online tool, you may use the Paper Health Screening Questionnaire and have your child bring the completed form to school and show it upon entry. Your school will provide you with printed copies so you can complete the questionnaire at home.

 If you or your child forgets or is unable to pre-screen, someone will be available at your school's
entrance to assist your child in completing the form and checking your child’s temperature.

 In order to keep everyone healthy and slow the spread of COVID-19, students will not be able to attendbin-person classes if they have:
 
o Been in close contact (within 6 feet for at least 10 minutes) with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
 
or

o Traveled internationally or from a state with widespread community transmission of COVID-19 per the New York State Travel Advisory in the past 14 days.
 
As always, please keep your child home if they are sick.
 
Students must fill out the Health Screening Form and bring it in before entering the building
 
 
Free or low- cost internet:
There are several free or low-cost internet options available to New York City students and families.
The following internet carriers are offering free household Wi-Fi or special accommodations for 60 days: Comcast, Charter Communications/Spectrum, Altice
Please see official announcement on the DOE website that was released a few minutes ago at:
 

Electronic Device Request 
To help students sta connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students. Please encourage families who need to request an internet- enabled electronic device to complete the survey here: 
 
Technology Support
If you have issues with technology for learning at home, visit our support pages: http://on.nyc.gov/3kImrrp
If you still have issues, we are here for you. Fill out the Technical Support for Families form: http://schools.nyc.gov/techsupport and we will get in touch.

Telehealth Tips Website
TheNYC Administration for Children’s Services, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity, and the Public Policy Labhavecollaborated to create aTelehealth Tips websiteto support families, providers, and advocates in using telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. All information on the website is available in New York City’s 11 official languages. 

Families can use the Telehealth Tips for Families page to find answers to common questions about setting up their technology and preparing for a virtual session. If you have any questions, please contact

Important P-EBT Update:
State P-EBT System Should Now Include All NYC Public School Students
All NYC public school students were entered automatically into the State's P-EBT system and should now appear in the system.  Some families have already received the cards in the mail, but not all mailings have gone out.  If you have not yet received the cards, you should expect them shortly.

In the rare instance you learn that your child does not appear in the P-EBT system after calling the helpline, please email us at 
info@foodadvocates.org
 
We are working hard to figure out what steps you should take in order to point you in the right direction. 
 
Please note that some students who attend NYC charter and parochial schools may not yet appear in the P-EBT system but will shortly.
 
STEPS YOU MAY NEED TO TAKE
If you have not received a P-EBT mailing within the next few days, call the State P-EBT Helpline at 1-833-452-0096 to confirm that your child appears in the P-EBT system.

P-EBT Helpline (OTDA): 1-833-452-0096
The helpline is staffed 8:30am – 5:00pm, Monday – Friday. 
 
TO REACH A REPRESENTATIVE: Select your language, then stay on the line. It will go through a menu of options, but just stay on the line and do not make any other menu selections.  This is the fastest way to reach a representative.

Letter from Chancellor Carranza

Dear Families,
Before we part for Winter Recess, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for all you have done to keep the learning going during this unforgettable year.

Our families and educators are the hearts and souls of our school communities, and everything we have gotten right this year, we owe to you. To the sacrifices you have made to ensure your children thrive in an era of blended and remote learning. To your trust in our public schools. To your personal feedback to me—whether positive or negative, it has helped me and everyone at the DOE better serve you and your children.

Although the holidays will look very different this year, there is still much to celebrate. I hope you take time to rejoice, relax, connect with loved ones near and far—and reflect on the acts of kindness and compassion that have lifted your lives these past 12 months.

As we look ahead to the rest of the school year, we are unwavering in our focus to deliver the highest-quality education possible to each of your children. We do this to prepare them for a successful, productive life, empowered with the skills they need to chase their dreams. To that end, last week we announced changes to the middle and high school admissions process, which will open in January. Beginning next year, our middle schools will not use academic records, auditions, or other screens or assessments to evaluate or admit students, and high schools will phase out geographic priorities. This will result in a fairer process for all New York City public school families. To learn more, please visit schools.nyc.gov/middle or schools.nyc.gov/high.

We know there’s more to do, and we are united in our mission to make sure your child—and every one of their 1.1 million peers—receives the best education possible in the greatest city in the world.

On behalf of all of us at the Department of Education, I wish you and your loved ones a beautiful holiday season and a happy new year. Please stay safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Sincerely,
Richard A. Carranza
Chancellor
New York City Department of Education
