Blended students will return to the school building on Monday, December 7th or Tuesday, December 8th, depending on their cohort.
All blended students must have submitted a COVID testing consent form before returning to school. Testing will take place at the school every week.
For the safety of the PS 89 community, any students who have been traveling outside the country or to a state that is not contiguous to NY must quarantine for 14 days before returning to school.
PS 89 has been approved to use Blended Learning Model 1A. Students in Cohort A will attend school on Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday. Students in Cohort B will attend school on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other Friday. Families can opt to switch their children to 100% remote learning at any time.
100% Remote Learning
Families have the option of choosing to have their child attend school solely through remote learning. The deadline for signing up for blended learning has passed, so if your children are in a 100% remote learning cohort now, they will remain in that cohort for the rest of the school year..
