This is an important announcement for all students. Please read through carefully. (Please also check the announcements at the bottom of the page)
Online Learning Extended: The mayor has announced that all public schools in New York City will remain ONLINE for the rest of this school year. Please make the best of this and engage in your classes fully. This means turning in all work in your Google Classrooms and attending live video instruction or office hours your teachers schedule. This will be the best way to ensure you will earn all of your credits by the end of June.
No Regents Exams in June: Regents exams are also canceled for this June. This means that if your class ends with a Regents exam this year, you will not have to take this exam and you will get credit for this exam IF YOU PASS THIS CLASS as well as your Fall semester course. This is all the more reason to take your online learning seriously. This goes NOT ONLY for graduating seniors, but for any student in any grade expected to take a Regents exam in June.
Daily Attendance: In light of these announcements, we expect to see you motivated and engaged with your teachers every day. We ask that you fill out the daily attendance survey that is sent to you each day by Ms. Rosa - submit it only once per day in one language of your choice.
Spring Break: Our spring break has been canceled. Teachers will set up meeting times to check in with you throughout the week. You should use this week to catch up on assignments you have not turned in. Your teachers might send you activities to keep connected and assist in having a less stressful and more recreational time this week. You should engage in those activities and catch up 100% with your online work.
AP Courses: If you are in an AP class, you should continue to complete work and study for those exams - even during the break time - since online exams will be administered from your home.
Saturday School/Credit Recovery
: We continue to hold Saturday School from 9:00-2:00 every Saturday. If you are doing credit recovery, you must contact Ms. Ralston to attend: email@example.com
Grading Policy: The DOE has issued an updated Grade Policy which provides flexibility and opportunity to succeed. Please see the letter and share with your families. At HSLPS we will be dropping your 3 lowest assignment scores in your classes and will provide the extra time necessary to catch up on work you are missing.
Thank you and stay well and safe.
Ms. Lev, Ms. Alonso, Ms. Brown, Mr. Lieberman, Ms. Ralston, Ms. Rosa
