Week of December 7, 2020

Dear Families,

Today is a TNS professional development half-day.  In the afternoon, we will think together about how we have conversations with families about race and racism by looking through the lens of teachers’ curriculum letters.  In particular, we will reflect on common threads, our stance as a school, and the opportunities we are creating for dialogue about race and racism with families.  We will also meet in our racial affinity groups.  

Starting tomorrow, families MUST submit a health screening for each child attending in-person. Go to https://healthscreening.schools.nyc/ to fill it out online, then show it on your phone at morning drop-off. All in-person students must have this screening filled out EVERY DAY, either on paper or on a phone, before they can enter the building.  In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must also submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing by the first day your child returns to their school building.  Schools will participate in weekly mandatory random testing of 20% of the school’s population, which includes 1st - 5th grade students and staff.  Finally, please send your child in with lots of warm layers because all classrooms have at least 2 windows open for ventilation and it can get cold.  

This week at TNS…

Have a good week,
