The OPT-IN period has been EXTENDED to Friday, April 9th. The DOE is aiming for new elementary opt-ins to join by the end of April
Right now the school is working out classroom configuration, furniture orders, staffing and supplies. The School Leadership Team will be tackling these logistic questions. I am also meeting with my Parent Advisory Group to ensure all considerations are addressed. After April 9th we will have a better understanding of our new blended learning program.
Have a great day!
In partnership, Mr. Brunner

COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE
Brooklyn Brownstone Families,
Please see the following letter from Chancellor Carranza and Commissioner Chokshi (Dept. of Health) regarding randomized COVID-19 testing.
Message from the Chancellor; "Beginning in October, our testing partners will test a randomly selected group of staff and students in schools once per month. The number of children and staff to be tested each month will depend on the size of the school population. In addition to the random monthly testing, we are also working hard to offer in-school testing later this year for students who are showing symptoms of COVID-19, or are a confirmed close contact of someone in the school who has tested positive. The test is easy, quick, and safe. This test is a short, small swab (like a Q-Tip) that goes just in the front of the nose, instead of the “long swab” that goes in the back of the nose."
