As we head into winter, it’s likely we will have inclement weather that in an ordinary year would cause all schools to close for teaching and learning. This year, if a snowstorm or other weather demands that school buildings close, all schools will still conduct remote learning on that day.
In New York City, children enter kindergarten in the fall of the calendar year they turn five, and are guaranteed a kindergarten seat at a public school. If you have a child born in 2016, you will apply to kindergarten this winter and your child will begin kindergarten in September 2021. Once your child starts kindergarten, they can remain at the same school until its final elementary grade.
If you previously chose full-time remote learning for your child, now is your chance to opt into blended learning for the remainder of the school year!
