Good Morning Brooklyn Brownstone Families and Friends,
I have a few updates for the community:
CLASS ROSTERS have been finalized. Over the next two days your new teacher will be reaching out to introduce themselves. We will also archive the current classes in both ClassDojo and Google Classroom to be replaced with new ones. If you find yourself without complete access to ClassDojo, it will only be momentarily and you can check our School News page on the website to keep informed.
PPE quality and quantity is low. I examined the masks at school and we will absolutely need to supplement the supply as we were only given 600 disposable child masks to be shared across the entire campus. I have escalated my concerns, however I am advising that every child has at least 5 masks of their own from home.
SUPPLIES including the masks mentioned above and various classroom supplies can be donated by families to the school starting Tuesday, September 1st. More info. specific to our classroom supply asks will be released later this morning.
OUTDOOR LEARNING has been a hot topic this week. We are not rushing to purchase tents and implement a half-baked outdoor classroom plan. Students will be able to play outside as normal. Teachers have been encouraged to practice discovery learning through neighborhood walks, trips to the park, and more.
THE CALENDAR has not been released yet. The first day of school is September 10th for Group B and C students. Group A students will begin on Monday September 14th.
Have a great day and stay cool!
