  • 10 Day Bldg Closure Due to Multiple Confirmed Cases - 3.25.21

    Dear World View HS Community,

    I’m writing to inform you that following an initial 24 hour closure of our school building, the NYC Test Trace Corps (T2) and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) have determined that the building must remain closed through 4/2/2021.

    Below you will find guidance that reflects the expertise of the DOHMH, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and T2.

     

    What Happens Now? 

    ● The school building will remain closed through 4/2/2021, and all teaching and learning will continue remotely. Staff and students may return to school on 4/3/2021.

    ● Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious. 

    ● Close contacts of the person who tested positive have been notified, and will continue their 10-day quarantine period. If additional close contacts are identified, they will also be instructed to quarantine for 10 days. 

     

    How Do We Stay Healthy? 

    Please remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:  

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).

    2. Practice social distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household. 

    3. Wear a face covering to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    4. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands. 

     

    How can I stay updated? 

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts, and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa. 

    To help New Yorkers quarantine, the NYC Test Trace Corps partners with community-based organizations to connect individuals to resources like food, medicine, and health care.  To connect with resources, you can call 1-212-COVID19 (212-268-4319).

  • June Regents Administration - 3.24.21

    Greetings,

    New York State is mandating all high schools to administer four Regents Exams in June 2021. 

    Students receiving remote instruction will not be made to come to school for the purpose of taking a Regents Examination. Therefore, students receiving remote instruction will not be scheduled for the June Regents Examinations unless requested. Students who are remote will receive an exemption for any Regents-bound class in which they receive a passing grade. Students who are attending in-person classes will be scheduled for the June Regents Examinations (if applicable).

    June 2021 Regents Administration:

    • Algebra I

    • Earth Science (written test only)

    • English Language Arts

    • Living Environment

    The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has cancelled the remaining Regents Examinations that were scheduled to be administered in June 2021. In addition, all of the Regents Examinations scheduled to be administered in August 2021 have also been cancelled.

    A schedule of administration dates for these four Regents Examinations is forthcoming.

    For more detailed information regarding the exemptions from Diploma Requirements and diploma endorsements, visit the NYSED website

     

    Should you have any questions regarding Regents requirements, please contact your child’s guidance counselor.

  • Letter from the Chancellor about opt-in window 3.22.21

    Dear Families,

    We just reopened high school buildings for in-person learning for the first time since November 2020, and I have to say that the joy on our students’ faces as they entered their school buildings was amazing. We are thrilled to see students of all ages safely learning in physical classrooms.

    That is why I am very pleased to let you know that all our remote families will now have one more opportunity to transition to blended learning this school year. This means that if your child is currently learning remotely every day, they will be able to opt in to learning in person in the school building at least part of the week for the remainder of the school year. We will make every effort to provide as many days of in-person learning as possible.

    When and How to Opt In to Blended Learning

    • Beginning this Wednesday, March 24, you can visit the Learning Preference Survey at https://www.nycenet.edu/surveys/learningpreference to select blended learning for your child.
    • Families can also call 311.
    • You can change to blended learning until Wednesday, April 7.

    When Your Student Can Return to the School Building

    • Students in district 3-K, Pre-K, and grades K-5, including students in District 75, who opt into blended learning during this opt-in window will return to buildings in April.
    • Students in grades 6-12 who opt into blended learning during this opt-in window will return at a later date, and we will communicate more details as soon as possible.
    • Updates will be posted at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus.

    Requirements for Returning to the School Building

    Please note that if you select blended learning for your child, you must submit the consent form for random COVID-19 testing by the first day your child begins in-person learning. You can submit your consent for testing one of two ways:

    • Through your New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) under ‘Manage Account’, or
    • Complete and sign the consent form available here and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they are back in the school building.

    Families that select blended learning are expected to have their child attend in person on days they are scheduled to do so.

    Please note that if your child is currently learning fully remotely and you do not complete the survey indicating a preference for blended learning, your student(s) will remain fully remote.

    We are able to offer this additional chance for fully remote students to opt in to learning in buildings because the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its guidance, allowing us to safely accommodate more students in a classroom. As always, our focus is on the health and safety of your children, the dedicated staff who serve them, and you—their family. That has been our priority since day one, and will continue to guide everything we do.

    Thanks to our strong health and safety practices—including wearing masks, hand hygiene, weekly random testing for COVID-19, physical distancing, and more—our school buildings are among the safest places in the whole city.

    Thank you, as always, for your faith and partnership. We continue to show the nation what is possible in terms of safely educating our one million students—and we couldn’t do it without you. I thank you for your commitment and, in turn, I promise you that our commitment to your child is unwavering.

     

    Sincerely,

    Meisha Porter

  • First Letter from the New Chancellor Meisha Porter - 3.18.21

    March 19, 2021

     

    Dear Families,

    This was my first week as your new Chancellor, and I couldn’t be more excited to take on this role. Not only because I am a New Yorker born and bred, but because education is in my blood. Both my mom and auntie were teachers and I became a New York City public school English teacher because of them, and the amazing educators I had as a student myself growing up in Queens.

    Since I started at the DOE 21 years ago, I have also worked as an assistant principal, and then principal. More recently, I served our school communities as a superintendent and Bronx executive superintendent. 

    And now it is my honor and privilege to lead our schools citywide. I have spent much of this week seeing our brilliant students and educators from every borough in action, in-person and remotely. I saw pre-k students learn about the water cycle, joined sixth graders in learning ratios by mixing just the right ratio of food coloring into frosting, and joined seventh-graders in sharing special objects that reveal something about who we are. Despite

    all the changes and challenges we’ve faced this past year, our school communities are still joyful, vibrant places of learning.

    As I reflect on this week’s visits, I am also heartened by the beautiful diversity of our classrooms, communities, and our City as a whole. In our schools, “respect for all” is not just a slogan, but a way of life. We value every student, staff member, and family for who they are. We ensure everyone feels welcomed. This is at our very core.

    But the horrific anti-Asian hate crimes we’ve been seeing citywide and this week in Atlanta make it clear that we must work harder to end systemic racism. Justice and inclusivity have been pillars of my career as an educator. As Chancellor, I promise to continue to advance equity and dismantle any biases in our school system. And I want to make it clear: there is no room for racism or discrimination of any kind at the Department of Education or in any of our schools. Just this week, we provided our educators with updated resources to combat hate crimes in our schools and provide our students with social and emotional supports. You can find resources for discussing racism and hate crimes with your children at schools.nyc.gov/togetherforjustice.

    Creating environments that encourage all students to be who they are will be on my mind on March 22, when all our public high schools will begin welcoming students back to in-person and blended learning. Like elementary and middle schools, as well as our District 75 programs, high schools will follow the strong practices we have established to help keep school communities healthy and safe. This includes weekly random testing of students and staff for COVID-19, physical distancing, masks, and nightly deep cleaning. In the meantime, I’m excited about this important milestone in the city’s recovery. And I’m proud to lead a school system that has set the standard for the nation in reopening efforts.

    This is such a hopeful and historic time for our schools and our city, and I want to thank you for all you have done to support our students and schools. In the coming weeks, there will be opportunities for us to meet and talk. I promise to hear and include your voices as we finish out this school year and plan for the next.

    Let’s go. Let’s do this. We’re ready.

     

    Sincerely,

    Meisha Porter
