School Updates- 3.18.20
Greetings Fashion Families from Principal Daryl Blank
I hope you and your families are safe and healthy!!!
I have some updates for our Fashion Families.
#1 – TECHNOLOGY AVAILABILITY
Here is the information regarding picking up technology:
We have some computer tablets at the school to give out. They will be available for distribution on Thursday, March 19, from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm. If you want to pickup equipment from the school, it must be on Thursday. The building will be closed on Friday. Please fill out this Google survey to let us know that you will coming to pick up a computer. I apologize if you had to come to school multiple times between picking up individual belongings in lockers and now technology. We were waiting for guidance from the NYC Department of Education about technology and we got that information last night.
The NYC Department of Education is working to get computer tablets to those who need them. You need to fill out this ‘Remote Learning Device Request’ online survey – here is the link – these surveys need to be completed by this Friday, March 20. The NYC Department of Education will be in touch with you about getting you this tablet – the school has no connection to this program.
#2 – REMOTE LEARNING SCHEDULE
Our remote learning schedule will use each student’s current schedule as a framework.
One set of classes will meet on Mondays and Wednesday (Periods 2,3,4,5) and the other set will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Periods 1,6,7,8,9). Teachers will have office hours from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm on Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, we will have office hours all day long for students to connect with teachers with questions and concerns. We fully understand that students might not be able to “make it” to class during the exact times posted on this schedule. Our staff will be very flexible – whatever the issue, we will figure it out together. More information to come. Students should be consistently checking their HSFI email, Google Classroom and Jupiter Grades.
