COVID-19 Cases on the Jackie Robinson/Ebbets Field Middle School Campus

11/18/2020 6:35 PM

Dear MS 352 at 46 McKeever Place Families:

The health and safety of our students and staff and everyone in the DOE family across the city is our top priority. We are committed to ensuring you have the information you need on COVID-19 as we continue to navigate this public health emergency together.  

Today I am writing to inform you that two or more members on the Jackie Robinson School Campushave tested positive for COVID-19 within seven days of each other. We are quickly taking all appropriate action and following rigorous protocols developed by the NYC Test + Trace Corps, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC Health) and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

Out of an abundance of caution, here is what will happen next to safeguard the health of our school community:

                                      GUIDANCE FOR REMOTE LEARNING

Remote Learning Expectations

During 100% remote learning, your child is expected to complete all assignments provided by the teacher. At the same time, we recognize that working independently at home is different and difficult for many students, so we want to provide flexibility. 

         Students and families should check Google Classroom daily for important updates from their teachers.

         At-home assignments for the week will be posted in Google Class by Monday morning each week. 

         At-home assignments for each week should be turned in by 4:00pm each Friday. Assignments will be graded. 

         During 100% distance learning, your teacher may conduct live classes via Google Meet. Check Google Classroom for your live class schedule.

         When signing in for virtual classes or meetings, students are expected to be on time, appropriately dressed, and ready to learn. Please try to reduce background noise and distractions as much as possible. 

Technology: Getting a Device and Internet Access

We are committed to making sure that all students can successfully connect to online learning during their at-home learning days. 

         If your student needs a laptop or tablet, fill out the Device Request Form to reserve your device. Borrowing a device is free! Students in grades K - 3 will receive tablets and students in grades 4-5 will receive laptops. 

         Borrowed devices should be used for school purposes only and kept in a secure location. Take your device with you on in-school days. 

         If you are using your own device, make sure it meets the technology requirements for online learning.

         If you do not have internet access at home, check the list of service providers furnishing free connection for families earning less than $50,000 per year with students learning at home.

         If you are not able to get internet hooked up in your home, your child's teacher will work with you to provide alternative offline assignments. 

         If you are having trouble connecting to Google Classroom, Google Meet, or any of our online learning resources, contact Mr. Henry for tech support.

Tips for Successful At-Home Learning

At-home learning will look different than a typical school day. The amount of time your child should be expected to engage in learning activities will vary by age and grade level. The expectations below are guidelines. If your child is not able to complete at-home learning assignments within the time periods recommended below, contact your child's teacher to discuss a modified assignment load. 

         Make sure your child has a quiet place to work (ideally a desk or table) and the school supplies they need. Try to remove distractions like the television or other technology not needed for learning. 

         For grades K-2, expect your child to work up to 2 hours per day, broken up into sessions of no more than 30 minutes. 

         For grades 3-5, expect your child to work up to 4 hours per day, broken up into sessions of no more than one hour. 

         Your child may benefit from focusing on a limited number of subjects each day. For example, If they are working at home Monday-Wednesday-Friday, they may want to work on science and math on Mondays, Social Studies and English Language Arts on Wednesday, and use Fridays to catch up on any assignments not yet completed.
