Good afternoon Brooklyn Brownstone School,
I’ve heard from a lot of you regarding concerns about school cleanliness and our ability to provide at-home support. Please read the following in response to those concerns:
The Department of School Facilities has already delivered emergency cleaning supplies that Brooklyn Brownstone School is utilizing by increasing the frequency of cleaning and including multiple “deep” cleans a week by custodial staff. Additionally, Brooklyn Brownstone Staff clean their classrooms and work spaces twice a day during lunch and after dismissal. Teachers have addressed hygiene and cleanliness with the students through lessons and they continue to monitor student habits to ensure they are following suggested guidelines.
At the time there are no plans to close Brooklyn Brownstone School. That does not mean our leadership team has not been working to ensure we have an action plan in place. Today, Mrs. Richards compiled hard copies and set up online resources that are ready to be utilized in the event of school closing, self-quarantine, or other extenuating circumstances. Communication is crucial. Please be sure to message me if you have any questions or concerns and I will do my best to respond in a timely manner.
Thank you. All the best,
