Spring/Trimester 3 Reopening Fact Sheet
Published March 19, 2021

On Tuesday, March 16, the Williamsburg Charter High School (“WCHS” or “School”) Board of Trustees voted to initiate a phased reopening plan of the School for Trimester 3, beginning on April 28. 

Phase 1 will include optional in-person instruction on Wednesdays. If it is safe to do so, the school will initiate Phase 2 and Phase 3, which will add additional days of instruction incrementally. If it is not safe to do so, the school will remain in Phase 1. 

Contextual Factors

  • National studies confirm that remote learning is increasing the academic learning gap. 
  • The School has been predominantly remote for one year and WCHS wanted to provide additional support for all of our students, especially our students with special needs, English language learners, and at-risk students.
  • The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) will be reopening high schools on March 22. 
  • Currently, there will be June Regents in core subjects. 

 

Methodology

  • Academic leadership considered space, student performance and staffing.
  • Academic leadership surveyed students, parents, and staff re: comfort returning to school for Trimester 3.
  • Leadership, Board members, and School Counsel discussed survey data, updated COVID data and information, and various factors affecting our community including academic and social emotional wellbeing.

 

Phase 1 Reopening

  • WCHS will reopen for optional in-person instruction on Wednesdays beginning April 28, 2021.
  • Parents do not have to send their child to school.
  • IMPORTANT: Parents can opt into or opt out of in-person instruction for their students via the Trimester 3 Selection Form that was sent out to families on March 17. Families have until March 26 to complete the form.
  • Families that choose to opt into the in-person program will receive in-person instruction on Wednesdays and remote instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
  • Families that choose to continue remote learning will receive remote learning on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
  • If you do not submit a Trimester 3 Selection Form, your child will automatically be enrolled in the Remote only program.

 

Schedule

  • The schedule for Trimester 3 will remain the same. The only difference is that some students will be receiving instruction in-person on Wednesdays. 

 

Safety Precautions

  • WCHS will continue to follow all safety protocols outlined in the WCHS COVID-19 Re-Entry and Operating Plan 2020-21 located on our website.
  • WCHS will continue to use the EPA and CDC recommended MERV-13 air filters in all of our HVAC systems. Windows are able to be opened  in all classrooms in use.
  • WCHS will ensure that students are seated at a distance of six feet apart until we are provided different guidance from New York State. Based on varying classroom size, approximately 12-18 students may be in a standard classroom at any time. Social distancing markers will indicate where students are allowed to sit in order to maintain social distancing. 
  • WCHS will continue to screen students and staff using the Daily Screening Survey. Students and staff who respond “yes” to any question will not be allowed in the building.
  • WCHS will require all students and staff to wear masks. While not mandatory at this time, students and staff will be encouraged to double mask. Masks will also be available on-site for staff or students who forget, lose, or damage their face covering.
  • WCHS will continue to encourage students and staff to wash hands frequently. Students and staff will have access to multiple hand sanitizers around the building and in every classroom. 
  • WCHS will not allow any guests onto the site unless it is an emergency. 
  • WCHS is not mandating testing and does not currently have the resources to provide COVID testing on site; however, WCHS will continue to encourage all members of our community to get tested frequently. If COVID testing resources become available, WCHS would like to pursue this option.

 

Lunch and Meal Distribution

  • On Wednesdays, in-person students will receive Grab ‘n Go breakfast (includes a bread such as cereal, a fruit, and milk) as they arrive during morning arrival from 7:55-8:45am. Students will also be able to pick up a Grab ‘n Go lunch (includes a main, such as sandwich, with a cold vegetable, milk and fruit) as they exit the building at dismissal from 11:45am-12:30pm. Menus will be posted on the OSFNS website
  • During Phase 2 and 3, in-person students will receive dedicated time to eat lunch in the classroom while seated 6 feet apart at their desks. Lunch will not be served in the cafeteria.
  • Students who select Remote learning can pick up meals from designated DOE sites.  The link for where to pick up take out meals during remote learning is below: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-life/food/school-meals.

 

MetroCards

  • MetroCards will be provided for students receiving in-person instruction.
  • Students learning remotely will NOT receive MetroCards.

 

Uniforms

  • Students who receive in-person instruction will be required to wear their uniforms. 
  • Students will be permitted to wear additional layers of clothing in order to stay warm due to the windows being open in classrooms. 

 

Technology

  • If you are in need of a school device, please complete our technology request form. Laptop and/or wifi device pickup is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9am-2pm when school is in session. Students should bring WCHS ID, wear proper face covering, stay 6 feet apart, take the Daily Symptom Screening and only come in if they answer “No” to all the questions. 

 

Extracurricular Activities, Sports, and Field Trips

  • WCHS extracurricular activities will continue to be remote during T3. WCHS will not be participating in in-person sports, clubs, or field trips at this time.
  • While the PSAL and the CSAA will be hosting low risk sports, WCHS has opted not to participate in league play at this time and will be focusing on preparing our athletes and teams for the fall.

Hoja Informativa sobre la Reapertura de Primavera/Trimestre 3
Publicada 19 de marzo de 2021

El martes, 16 de marzo, la Junta Directiva de la escuela secundaria Williamsburg Charter (“WCHS” o “La Escuela”) votó para iniciar un plan de reapertura en fases en la Escuela para el Trimestre 3, comenzando el 28 de abril. 

La primera fase incluye instrucción en persona opcional los miércoles.  Si es seguro, la escuela iniciará Fase 2 y Fase 3, lo cual añade días de instrucción adicionales incrementalmente.  Si no es seguro, la escuela permanecerá en Fase 1.   

Factores Contextuales

  • Estudios Nacionales confirman que el aprendizaje remoto está aumentando la brecha de aprendizaje académico. 
  • La Escuela ha sido predominantemente remota por un año y la WCHS quiere proporcionar apoyo adicional para todos nuestros estudiantes, especialmente nuestros estudiantes con necesidades especiales, los estudiantes aprendiendo el inglés, y los estudiantes en riesgo.
  • El Departamento de Educación de la Ciudad de Nueva York (NYCDOE) abrirá las escuelas secundarias el 22 de marzo. 
  • Actualmente, habrá exámenes Regents en junio en materias básicas. 

 

Metodología

  • El liderazgo académico encuestó a los estudiantes, padres, y el personal sobre: comodidad al regresar a la escuela durante el tercer trimestre.
  • El Liderazgo, la Junta Directiva, y el Consejo Escolar discutieron los datos de la encuesta, los datos e información actualizada de COVID, y varios factores que afectan nuestra comunidad incluyendo el bienestar académico y socioemocional.

 

Reapertura de Fase 1

  • La WCHS reabrirá para instrucción en persona opcional los miércoles comenzando el 28 de abril de 2021.
  • Los padres no tienen que mandar a sus hijos a la escuela.

  • Las familias que optan al programa en persona recibirán instrucción en persona los miércoles e instrucción remota los lunes, martes, jueves, y viernes.
  • Las familias que eligen continuar instrucción remota recibirán instrucción remota lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, y viernes.
  • Si no completa el formulario Trimester 3 Selection Form, su hijo automáticamente será inscrito en el programa solamente remota.

Precauciones de Seguridad

  • La WCHS continuará siguiendo todos los protocolos de seguridad descritos en WCHS COVID-19 Re-Entry and Operating Plan 2020-21 que se encuentra en nuestra página web.
  • La WCHS continuará usando los filtros de aire MERV-13 recomendados por el EPA y la CDC en todos nuestros sistemas de HVAC.  Las ventanas se pueden abrir en todas los salones de clase que están en uso.
  • La WCHS asegurará que los estudiantes están sentados con una distancia de seis pies  hasta que se nos proporcione una orientación diferente del estado de Nueva York. Según el tamaño variable del aula, aproximadamente de 12-18 estudiantes pueden estar en un aula estándar en cualquier momento.  Marcadores de distanciamiento social indican donde se pueden sentar los estudiantes para mantener el distanciamiento social. 
  • La WCHS continuará evaluando students y staff usando la Encuesta de Evaluación Diaria. Los estudiantes y el personal que responden “sí” a cualquier pregunta no serán permitidos entrar al edificio.
  • La WCHS requerirá que todos los estudiantes y el personal usen máscaras. Si bien no es obligatorio en este momento, se alentará a los estudiantes y al personal a usar la máscara doble.  También habrá máscaras disponibles en la escuela para el personal o estudiantes que olviden, pierdan, o dañen su cubierta facial.
  • La WCHS continuará alentando a los estudiantes y el personal a lavar sus manos con frecuencia.  Los estudiantes y el personal tendrán acceso a múltiples desinfectantes para manos en todo el edificio y en cada salón de clase. 
  • La WCHS no permitirá que ningún invitado ingrese al edificio a menos que sea una emergencia. 
  • La WCHS no exige pruebas y actualmente no tiene los recursos para proporcionar pruebas de COVID en el edificio; sin embargo, la WCHS continuará animando a todos los miembros de nuestra comunidad a hacerse la prueba con frecuencia.  Si los recursos de la prueba de COVID están disponibles, la WCHS desea seguir esta opción.

 

Distribución de Almuerzo y Alimentos

  • Los miércoles, los estudiantes en persona recibirán un desayuno para llevar (incluye pan/cereal, fruta, y leche) cuando lleguen en la mañana de 7:55-8:45am.  Los estudiantes también recibirán almuerzo para llevar (incluye un plato principal como un sándwich, una verdura fría, leche, y fruta) al salir del edificio de 11:45am-12:30pm.

Dear WCHS Students and Families,

As of this morning, New York City reached a seven day rolling average of 3% COVID-19 test positivity citywide, and, as a result, the DOE will temporarily close down all public school buildings, effective Thursday, November 19.

As a public charter high school located in a private space, WCHS is not obligated to follow the actions of the NYC DOE; however, we will be following NYC DOE’s decision out of an abundance of caution. WCHS will transition to fully remote learning beginning November 19 until further notice. We were previously slated to transition to fully remote learning following the Thanksgiving holiday on November 30.  

Access to Food

All families and students can continue to go to any DOE school building between 9:00 a.m. and noon on weekdays to pick up three free grab-and-go meals. No identification or registration is necessary. Halal and kosher meals are available at some sites, which are listed at schools.nyc.gov/freemeals.

Access to Technology

If your child still needs to borrow a school laptop or wifi device, please complete the Digital Equity Survey/Technology Request Form. If you have already completed, we have your information.

The Technology Department will then contact you when your device is ready for pick up. If you have requested a device, but have not yet heard back from the Technology Department, please email dmedina@thewcs.org or call 718-782-9830 and leave a message.

Technology Pick-Up is Monday-Friday from 12-3pm on days when remote classes are scheduled. Please make sure your child brings their WCHS ID, wears a face covering, and stays 6 feet apart at all times. Your child must also fill out the Daily Screening Form prior to coming to the school to pick up the items. If your child feels sick or answers “Yes” to any of the questions, they must stay home, and we can mail the device to you. An adult signature and verified address will be required for delivery.

Our priority is to ensure the safety of our students and staff, and minimize stress on families while continuing to provide students with quality learning experiences.  Students will continue to be given the time and support they need to complete coursework and earn credit. Teachers’ flexible grading policy, along with our incomplete policy, will help support student success while ensuring students meet the academic requirements and learning goals for their courses. High school seniors will receive additional support to ensure they remain on track for graduation. 

Should you have questions, please contact your child’s grade level Academy Leader.  Academy Leader information is listed below along with our Special Education Coordinator’s contact information:

Estimados estudiantes y familias de WCHS:

A partir de esta mañana, la ciudad de Nueva York alcanzó un promedio de 3% de positividad en siete días de la prueba COVID-19 en toda la ciudad y, como resultado, el DOE cerrará temporalmente todos los edificios de las escuelas públicas a partir del jueves 19 de noviembre.

Como escuela secundaria chárter pública ubicada en un espacio privado, WCHS no está obligada a seguir las acciones del NYC DOE; sin embargo, seguiremos la decisión del NYC DOE por precaución. WCHS pasará al aprendizaje completamente remoto a partir del 19 de noviembre hasta nuevo aviso. Anteriormente, estábamos programados para la transición al aprendizaje completamente remoto después de las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias el 30 de noviembre.

***

Acceso a alimentos
Todas las familias y estudiantes pueden continuar yendo a cualquier edificio escolar del DOE entre las 9:00 a.m. y el mediodía de lunes a viernes para recoger tres comidas para llevar gratis. No es necesaria identificación ni registro. Las comidas halal y kosher están disponibles en algunos sitios, que se enumeran en schools.nyc.gov/freemeals.

Acceso a la tecnología
Si su hijo aún necesita pedir prestada una computadora portátil o un dispositivo wifi de la escuela, complete la Encuesta de equidad digital / Formulario de solicitud de tecnología. Si ya lo ha completado, tenemos su información.

El Departamento de Tecnología se comunicará con usted cuando su dispositivo esté listo para ser recogido. Si solicitó un dispositivo, pero aún no ha recibido respuesta del Departamento de Tecnología, envíe un correo electrónico a dmedina@thewcs.org o llame al 718-782-9830 y deje un mensaje.

La recogida de tecnología es de lunes a viernes de 12 a 3 pm los días en que se programan clases remotas. Asegúrese de que su hijo traiga su identificación de WCHS, use una cubierta facial y se mantenga a una distancia de 6 pies en todo momento. Su hijo también debe completar el Formulario de evaluación diaria antes de venir a la escuela a recoger los artículos. Si su hijo se siente enfermo o responde “Sí” a cualquiera de las preguntas, debe quedarse en casa y podemos enviarle el dispositivo por correo. Se requerirá una firma de un adulto y una dirección verificada para la entrega.

Nuestra prioridad es garantizar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal, y minimizar el estrés en las familias mientras continuamos brindando a los estudiantes experiencias de aprendizaje de calidad. Los estudiantes continuarán recibiendo el tiempo y el apoyo que necesitan para completar el trabajo del curso y obtener créditos. La política de calificaciones flexible de los maestros, junto con nuestra política incompleta, ayudarán a respaldar el éxito de los estudiantes mientras aseguran que los estudiantes cumplan con los requisitos académicos y los objetivos de aprendizaje de sus cursos. Los estudiantes del grado 12 recibirán apoyo adicional para garantizar que se mantengan encaminados hacia la graduación.

Dear WCHS Families,

On October 6, Governor Cuomo announced the Cluster Action Initiative,  a color coding system for identifying areas with high COVID positivity rates.  Locations will be categorized either Red, Orange, or Yellow, based on proximity to the cluster.  The severity of the problem will determine the response.

The initiative will divide clusters and the areas around them into three categories with successively higher restrictions within each one:

Williamsburg Charter High School has not been identified as being in any of Governor Cuomo’s cluster zones at this time; however, WCHS’ zip code, 11206, has been placed on Mayor DeBlasio’s Watchlist. 

In the event that WCHS is placed in a cluster zone, parents will be notified via letter, autocall, social media, and it will be posted on the website on our COVID portal (www.thewcs.org/covid-19/). School closures will be announced via letter, autocall, social media and on the website.

The COVID portal will be updated daily to show WCHS’ color zone.

In the meantime, please continue to take your student’s temperature and keep them home if they are sick or respond “YES” to any of our Daily Screening Questions. We encourage all students and families to wash hands frequently, wear a face covering,  stay 6 feet apart, and avoid large gatherings.

Information regarding free COVID testing is available here: www.nyc.gov/covidtest.

Please note, all families whose students are receiving in-person instruction may transfer to remote instruction using the Hybrid Learning Selection Change Form.

Best,

Jahi Bashir, Active Interim Head of School
Valerie Jacobson, Head of Operations

Español

Estimadas familias de la WCHS,

El 6 de octubre, el Gobernador Cuomo anunció la Iniciativa Cluster Action, un sistema de codificación de colores para identificar áreas con altas tasas de positividad de COVID.  Las ubicaciones se clasificarán en Rojo, Naranja, o Amarillo, según la proximidad al conglomerado.  La severidad del problema determinará la respuesta.

La iniciativa dividirá los conglomerados y las áreas que los rodean en tres categorías con restricciones sucesivamente mayores dentro de cada uno:


Williamsburg Charter High School no ha sido identificado en ninguna de las zonas agrupadas del Gobernador Cuomo en este momento; sin embargo, el código postal de la WCHS, 11206, se ha incluido en la lista de vigilancia del Alcalde DeBlasio. 

En caso de que la WCHS se coloque en una zona del conglomerado, los padres serán notificados por carta, llamada automática, redes sociales, y se publicará en el sitio web de nuestro portal COVID (www.thewcs.org/covid-19/). El cierre de las escuelas será anunciado por carta, llamada automática, redes sociales, y se publicará en el sitio web. 

El portal de COVID será actualizado diariamente para demostrar la zona de color de la WCHS.

Mientras tanto, continúe tomando la temperatura de su hijo y manténgalo en casa si está enfermo o responda “SI” en la encuesta Daily Screening Questions. Alentamos a todos los estudiantes y familias a que se laven las manos con frecuencia, se cubran la cara, se mantengan a una distancia de seis pies y eviten las reuniones masivas.

Información sobre las pruebas de COVID gratuitas está disponible aquí: www.nyc.gov/covidtest.

Tenga en cuenta que todas las familias cuyos estudiantes reciben instrucción en persona pueden transferirse a instrucción remota utilizando la encuesta Hybrid Learning Selection Change Form. 

Atentamente, 
Jahi Bashir, Director Interina Activo de la Escuela
Valerie Jacobson, Directora de Operaciones

Continuity of Learning April 9-17

Parents and Families,

You may have heard that earlier this week Governor Cuomo cancelled spring break (April 9-17) across the State. For public New York City Department of Education schools, this means that “school” will be held daily through what was scheduled as spring break.

As an independent community charter high school, Williamsburg Charter High School has the independence and ability to decide on a schedule that best serves our students, staff  and families. 

We understand that this has been a very stressful time. Students and families have been asked to make many changes in how they live and learn. With all that said, we believe it is time for some rest and that some break is necessary for everyone to rejuvenate.

Therefore, the Board of Trustees, in partnership with WCHS Leadership, opted to create a continuity of learning plan for the period between April 9-17 that will allow for our students to continue to be engaged and for our staff to have some rest.  Students will have a project to complete over the course of April 9-17 but can do so at their own pace.

We will be rolling out details about what it will look like over the next few days.  If you have any questions, please contact covidconcerns@thewcs.org.

Thank you.

Padres y familias,

Es posible que haya escuchado que a principios de esta semana el gobernador Cuomo canceló las vacaciones de primavera (del 9 al 17 de abril) en todo el estado. Para las escuelas públicas del Departamento de Educación de la Ciudad de Nueva York, esto significa que la “escuela” se llevará a cabo diariamente durante lo que estaba programado como vacaciones de primavera.

Como escuela secundaria autónoma comunitaria independiente, Williamsburg Charter High School tiene la independencia y la capacidad de decidir el horario que mejor sirva a nuestros estudiantes, personal y familias.

Entendemos que este ha sido un momento muy estresante. Se les ha pedido a los estudiantes y sus familias que hagan muchos cambios en cómo viven y aprenden. Con todo lo dicho, creemos que es hora de descansar y que es necesario un descanso para que todos puedan rejuvenecerse.

Por lo tanto, la Junta de Fideicomisarios, en asociación con WCHS Leadership, optó por crear un plan de continuidad del aprendizaje para el período comprendido entre el 9 y el 17 de abril que permitirá a nuestros estudiantes continuar comprometidos y que nuestro personal descanse un poco. Los estudiantes tendrán un proyecto que completar en el transcurso del 9 al 17 de abril, pero pueden hacerlo a su propio ritmo.

Lanzaremos detalles sobre cómo se verá en los próximos días. Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con covidconcerns@thewcs.org.

Gracias.

March 10, 2020: There are 0 confirmed or reported cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) at WCHS. If you are hearing rumors and reports claiming otherwise, please note these are false. To clarify, Student Led Conferences, are canceled this Thursday (3/12) and Friday (3/13) as an extra precaution to deep clean our school. Call us with any questions.

***

March 9, 2020 Update: Together, the Board and the Administration has made a decision out of an abundance of caution in light of the issues surrounding COVID-19 to cancel Student Led Conferences on Thursday and Friday (March 12 and 13).  The building will be closed on those days for deep cleaning as an extra precaution. Those days were already non-instructional days so we won’t have to make those days up.

In addition, all field trips are canceled until further notice.
 

Below is the WCHS COVID-19 Response Plan, which has been adopted by our Board of Trustees. This plan details our risk analysis evaluation tool as well as school response protocol for each risk level to the community: Low Risk (Level 1), Moderate Risk (Level 2), Medium Risk (Level 3), and High Risk (Level 4).

On Friday, March 6, 2020 WCHS was at Low Risk, Level 1; however, due to the increasing number of cases in New York City, the issuance of some travel advisories, and general increasing concern throughout the city, we have increased our risk level to Moderate Risk, Level 2.

Our contingency plan is in place. All regularly scheduled activities are allowed. However, field trips are suspended until further notice. And we have cancelled Student Led Conferences on March 12 and 13. There are no changes to the athletic program at this time.

We have increased our cleaning routine of the school throughout the day and at night, and we will be deep cleaning the school March 12-15. Even though there is no virus in our building, we have reviewed all of our cleaning products, and we have purchased cleaning products that disinfect and decontaminate the virus.

Further, we have begun preparations to engage in online learning if necessary (Level 4). Parents and guardians, please complete the attached technology survey as soon as possible. More information regarding online learning will follow as needed.

Community Guidance

Williamsburg Charter High School is following all available guidance relating to the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 “Coronavirus”.
